The dead tree is more beautiful than the shoe tree (but I love them both)

Cloud over Lake Street

I liked this cloud; it reminds me of volcanoes in Guatemala.

Day at the Arboretum

On Friday I attended a library conference held at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. They gave us a long lunch hour with the opportunity to explore the grounds, including this lovely tulip.

Greening of campus

The trees popped today...

And the water flowed....

....But some ice remains, even as things sprout nearby.

Mardi Gras for Lutherans

Oh - were you looking for the Lutherans? They were here just a minute ago. They're very shy.... but they consumed the Hurricanes and the Jambalaya with equal gusto. Of course, the requisite coffee was served, with caffeine, around, oh, yah, I guess it was about nine o'clock or so, don't you know?

Roadside Falls - no "laughing" matter

img_1700.jpg
Most winters, this stretch of West River Parkway near the West bank of campus has a small stream that eventually freezes over, and ice stretches for no more than four or five feet in width.

This year it's trying to imitate Minnehaha Falls and exemplifies the kind of winter we've been experiencing. I can bear to look at it more easily now that it's warming up. The road will probably flood, don't you think?

Remembering the thaw

Two days of warmth, preciously occurring over the weekend, ended abruptly on Monday. So I return to the Sunday photos to remind myself that the end of winter (this winter, at least) will come....
