Patience! she cried.


On the second day of the only two sunny days we've had this week I braved the early spring chill to capture a luscious sky over Como Lake. The water was both choppy and dark from the wind but the sun through the clouds and contrails was warm and promising. Big contrast here. . .so there you have it, blue sky from the Twin Cities! See skies from everywhere else here.


Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.

a perfect quote. I'm tucking that one away. you've described the elements of the day so well, I'm pretty sure I know precisely what it looked and felt like. never mind your most excellent photo which is icing on the cake. we do share similar weather! I was working out in it all morning and yes. most definitely. have a great weekend Mary Ann.
