Ahhh, Signs of Spring....







Seeing the terrible damage the nor'easter caused this past week in the Northeast, I think that we are all very grateful for this stretch of stunning weather. The bonus is that Spring is very much in the air, even if it's a temporary reprieve, we'll take it. I went for a walk by the water yesterday, and took these couple of shots of the same stretch of the Pawtuxet River by the bridge. You can see the water is still furiously rushing into the Stillhouse Cove, however, it is clear that the current has become less fierce.The top photo is looking back into the Cove, where you can see the water becomes quiet. There were also some signs of Spring, little though they may be, are a real standout. I also found some great weeds, which caught my eye.

What a difference a couple of days makes, eh? Our weather patterns have been similar here in the PNW, but no flowers out quite yet, or awesome weeds for that matter. Just moss, moss, and more moss for now!

Jennie, I thought about you when I got home after taking these photos, and the discussion we had last year about taking pics of the weeds in B&W...maybe on my next jaunt down to the Cove, I'll give it a whirl...the sky, I think, made a good background...they remind me of golf clubs...anywho, yes, the weather today is unmatched!!!
