Back on April 19 we had a big snow storm.
And we wondered if spring would ever come. But ever so slowly, the snow melted, and then the ice on the lake began to melt.
Every day I would come home from work and go to the window to see if the ice was off the lake yet.
Last night the lake looked like this...
And today, when I got home it looked like this!
There's just a little bit of ice left close to the shore, and the trees hide it from view.
Welcome, spring! We're glad you're finally here.
“It was such a spring day as breathes into a man an ineffable yearning, a painful sweetness, a longing that makes him stand motionless, looking at the leaves or grass, and fling out his arms to embrace he knows not what.”
― John Galsworthy, The Forsyte Saga
