Factoid: Spring makes people nuts!

Late spring weather can be mercurial, and nowhere is that more evident than when Minnesota tries to leave winter behind. Yesterday it snowed several inches but by late afternoon this was the sky I saw near my house when I walked to the lake. The birds were hysterical and a hoodie was warm enough. By the time I got back up the hill to my house the sky had yet another big bank of clouds moving through. Then they morphed into an ice storm after dinner. Really keeps us on our toes! More skies from just about everywhere, here.

"April is the cruelest month, T.S. Eliot wrote, by which I think he meant (among other things) that springtime makes people crazy. We expect too much, the world burgeons with promises it can't keep, all passion is really a setup, and we're doomed to get our hearts broken yet again. I agree, and would further add: Who cares? Every spring I go out there anyway, around the bend, unconditionally. ... Come the end of the dark days, I am more than joyful. I'm nuts. "
— Barbara Kingsolver

Hiya Barbara,

It seems that in your area April is especially wilful.
Ours in the UK is too, but by pretending to be midsummer rather than winter.
Confusing.

We SURE could use some of that Here in Texas! Love the photos!

April skies can change from golden to grey in a heartbeat!
I WONDER WHY

I wonder why
Some love the sky
But not the wind and rain.

I wonder, friend,
If sky will end—
It’s too much for my brain!

Ah, I think you are having the same spring weather that is teasing us, - snow squalls, bitter winds, sunshine and blue skies and then great sheets of rain! Makes life interesting...

Ebie said...

Those pinkish clouds are so pretty. The reflections cast on the lake, wow, so beautiful!

I hope your snow melts soon to bring out the Spring flowers!

So pretty Noni...Happy Earth Day!

Ms. Becky said...

wow, what a progression of sky events there. it changes so fast. one day we had 84 and then 35. but it really hasn't climbed out of the thirties for over a week now. and lots of rain. but I love the quote. yes, who cares? I hope you have a great weekend.

Pietro said...

Thanks for sharing these wonderful landscapes and the nice quote, Noni!
Happy Easter!

Linda said...

Wishing you an end to ice and dark skies.
