Turkey Tracks: Reflections

Turkey Tracks:  February 26, 2013


We are getting another big snow over the next few days.

I don’t mind.  I like the quiet and the time to work on projects.

But, I think it’s fun to think about the warm half of the year in the middle of winter.  And, visa versa in July or August.

Here’s a picture John took last summer.  I found it in the picture card of his camera the other day:


And here’s one I took of the first, ripe Sun Gold tomato of the summer crop last summer:

First Sun Gold August 2012

There’s lots to enjoy  in February in Maine.  Gorgeous light effects at sunrise and sunset and at dusk, with what we call the “blue light.”  And, flowers from “away” that remind us that spring will come around again.  Like these gorgeous roses, with the “blue light” of dusk in the background.

Roses, Feb. 2013

I will have February for only two more days.

  1. Wesa,

    I’ve been sharing your views on winter in facebook…I want you to thank you for helping me to slow down and enjoy our winter…I love the pink sunsets with the black tree branches pointing to the beautiful heavens….And the cool (here) walks in the park with the pups each day…where some special unique creature awaits as a surprise….the dogs love winter, too. They particularly loved the snow we had a few weeks ago…they seemed to be joyous as they ran, skidded, and rolled in what little snow we had…Once again thank you for helping me to stop to smell the roses of winter…Love you…Sue
