For those of you who don’t already know, my mom, Bernice Vincent, died on Friday, March 25th.
You can read the obituary, a kind tribute by James Reaney, and an interesting article in the London Free Press. Or review her career as an artist on her web site.
Here I post this rather poor photo, taken two hours after her burial. After a weekend of mixed weather including sun, warm, cold, rain, snow, sleet, cloud and clear, the day of mom’s funeral was primarily sunny with swaths of interesting cloud.
At the cemetery someone looked up and said, “it’s a Bernice Vincent sky.” Someone else piped up, “they’re ALL Bernice Vincent skies.”
After we got back to mom’s place and were beginning to relax, the clouds, very briefly, opened up, then broke with sun in the west. For just a few minutes, hovering over the house, was this rainbow.
It’s been grey and windy here in London over the last few days. There’s been some rain, too, but mostly just bluster. Read more “London Sky”
With unusually mild weather, a friend and I went for a walk near mom’s place. Read more “Christmas Eve Walk”
Mom has lived in a suburb that, she once discovered, is on one of the highest points of land in London. When you look around, it’s as though the rest of the landscape has floated away. A friend and I refer to it as Edgeworld. Read more “Edgeworld Wash”
I spent the last weekend at mom’s place in London.

On Christmas Eve we had fog. I drove through it the night before to visit mom in London and it stayed through the next day. Read more “Fog”
Spring is officially here. The equinox passed on Thursday and we’re into the season of growth. It doesn’t entirely seem that way, though. Read more “Spring in the Distance”
The last snow storm left a blanket of fresh snow over what was a strong melt of two days. I wanted to get a shot it, but the blizzard raged well into the evening. Read more “Moonlight on Fresh Snow”
I’m in London now, after last week’s white out drive.
The snow has settled and this morning it started to warm up.
Yesterday was mom’s 80th birthday.
This morning the sun came up gently, slowly and warmed a clear blue sky that sailed all day over the melting snow.
Come on, spring!
Another trip to London this week. A bit rushed so I didn’t get to a computer in time to get this post out on Friday. So here you are with a late Sunday post.
I did, however, get to spend some time looking out a 9th floor picture window at the changing weather over downtown London. Read more “London – 9th Floor (late post)”
