NEW HAMPSHIRE SCENES: In like a lion
The first ten days of March
did come in
like the proverbial lion
and I watched my woods fill up with snow,
plein air from the window
of my house
and my studio
|From my studio window|
snow lovers rejoiced,
and the long time residents said, "Finally."
Temperatures soared, at least for NH, to high 70's.
Mud season was upon us...
With the frozen ground thawing on the surface,
and snow melting fast,
there is nowhere for the water to go,
but to mix with the top un-freezing layers..
On the equinox, (March 21) Newspaper headline read,
SPRING IS HERE, WINTER WASN'T!
A hike up a mountain over looking Squam Lake
(setting for "On Golden Pond" for those who remember,)
showed ice melting, snow bare slopes and
an early blooming hepatica!
Only a teaser!
Mt. Washington lost its snow,
but today the snow is back.
Tomorrow? Next week?
Maples are budding,
but it's still freezing at night.
Nature is a multi-media art installation:
but definitely worth watching...
