The Changes in the Weather... Summer might still get here!

Last weekend (first one in May), we ended the beautifully sunny day with a fire on the deck, enjoying the sunset and the companionship that such an evening often brings...

...Hiin, loving the cranberry tea...


... and one week later, there is no fire in the pit...

Winter returned just in time to blanket my primroses, tulips, and everything else that has been working so hard at emerging and trumpeting the warmer weather... and made Mother's Day just that much more interesting.

But Sunday evening, when the tide was way out, a minke whale came feeding right off the end of the dock by the water, chasing herring I think, breaking the surface of the still waters with dorsal fin. How great!! No photo documentation, though, it was a moment to enjoy rather than capture... which is to say I was not quick enough!
