I’ve been blogging less and less these days. Mostly because I haven’t had anything substantial to post, and the convenience of running a tiny microblog via Instagram (@wheremyeyesgo) is too tough to beat! But I thought since it’s been a while, I should try and find my way back here!
This past week was rainy. That kind of cold rain that you feel in your bones and never ended. And because the rest of the April was warm and sunny and full of potential, we all sort of fell into a dismal slum of weather hopelessness. But after two full days of constant rain, we had an incredible sunset, one of biblical proportions; the sky flamed red and gold and purple and it was as if God said, this time, a simple rainbow won’t be enough! (of course, not pictured, but just imagine the most splendid sunset and you’ve got it!)
So because of the sunshine, we decided to head into our local nature conservation area Ojibway Park for a stroll. The forest was alive with the sounds of birds and deer and the muck muck muck of boots in deep puddles of mud. We met local birders in their daily walk-around, chatting up the latests sights and managed to get a few shots for ourselves! Overall, spring has been good to us here in our tiny part of the country. The lilacs bloomed early and gave off the most luxurious fragrance you could possibly find in nature, the weather was warm enough consistently to be able to wear loafers AND trench coats without second thought, and the promise of long nights and longer sunsets finally feel like a reality after a cold, dark, winter.
