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”

There’s plenty of this combo to be seen at this time of year. And so great to see it after the cold, cold winter. Read more “Spring Colours”

I went back to my Austere Winter Lake to see how the beautiful ice formations were doing in the melt. Read more “Ice Melt and Horses”
It’s been a more gentle winter than last year. But it’s been cold. Very cold.
In spite of the sun, there have been plenty of dark days.
On January 1st I trimmed some branches from my forsythia and forced them indoors. Read more “Forsythia and the Cat”
