The lovely shift to spring weather has coincided with the calendar this year. I don’t quite trust this warmth, and I imagine there will be another snow, probably in April. Last year the late frost was 16 May. But, enough of those gloomy thoughts. Here are some photos from a walk near the big river. These were taken on 20 March. So beautiful. A bit windy, which accounts for some of the blowing sand you can see in some of the pictures. I was also trying to show some of the standing stalks with their amazing seed pods still in place. And I finish off with a picture of a cat, because it is always helpful to see a picture of Tiglet. He is lounging in a box of straw in the barn.
Despite having had several lovely days with kitties reveling in the warm weather, it turned snowy again in true South Dakota March fashion. Here is Tiglet being happy in the warmer weather last week.
A friend brought me this lovely, small beauty. I have it in an egg cup (to give a sense of scale here).
It is still not truly spring in south dakota, but the temperatures are tricking all of us.
It was very cold here in South Dakota and has now warmed up.
Perhaps instead of landscape I should be tagging these as skyscapes.
Vlad usually looks something like this on the right.
Here are a series of images of Vlad with an epic case of kitty bed head. First the nap posture that contributed.
When he first awakened he gave me a more befuddled look than usual.
Then he decided he better straighten himself out a bit.
Notice he hasn’t quite had a chance to put his tongue away.
