Sunday, April 5, 2009

Sunny, few clouds; brisk breeze from the north. Most of the remaining ice brightened by fresh snow. The wind has cleared the northern half of the lake, piling up caked ice on the southern shore in chunks up to half a foot thick. Gulls on the ice, a few robins along the path to the north, a canoeist paddling quickly from west to east; four geese towards the eastern shore; mergansers gone. Some green grasses and coarser leaves pushing through the dried leaves along the creek.
