only the brave need apply

I saw reluctant morning skies over White Bear Lake this week, Both the daylight and I were slow to awaken.

Eventually the grey clouds dissipated but not before a fisherman had shoved off into the water and cast his first line.
Spring is edging its way closer to us in spite of a couple of nights of frost. I've noticed two Blue Herons, four white egrets, a flock of cormorants, and a few wooducks out and about in the brisk air.

Factoid: one must be tough as leather to live in Minnesota. . .and like to fish! I'm linking these pics to Skywatch Friday.

Definitely a reluctant morning!! Yep, old leather, indeed! Some say that about the Pacific Northwest, too! Great shots for the day, Noni! Have a great weekend -- hopefully, with some sunshine!

I have those same tulips. Great minds do work alike. Your blue background is such a breath of spring. I really like it. I also like our similar taste on Pinterest. Happy spring!
