Summer is coming to town! It’s above 5 C (41F) for the first time since the end of October. I went for a photo walk to the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden this afternoon, but took a few images of ‘hopes of summer’ along the way.
Finally we can feel warmth from the sun, the cloud formations are changing and the sky is taking on its summer hue.
There is more activity in the underbrush, some of the buds are starting to form. The squirrels are wondering when the summer food will be available.
I was crouching down to get the shot I wanted when this grey squirrel poked his nose in.
During the winter the evergreens become much darker – it’s very encouraging to see them greening up again.
The shadows at 2 in the afternoon are still quite long. We will be glad of the shade once summer arrives.
This is the English garden in spring – here is a glimpse of it from a summer past
It’s coming soon!
Next up will be some of the images from the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden.
