Wonderful May



There is no handwork content tonight but there is something I very much love to share with you. 
It is this scenery. Maybe you are already tired of looking at the lake every single spring about this time, but these evenings are so breath taking. The lake has been gone (covered by the ice) for so long that now that it is back, it is constant joy...
Tonight is very calm, not a stir on the surface and you can see the beautiful reflection of the sky. You can stand right there on the edge of the lake and look down and all you see is the sky. There are no leaves in the trees, no grass, nothing to hush down the sounds, so the birds and their cries echo purely, just perfect music for the early summer night.
And don't forget the light, almost 10pm and the sun is still here, kissing softly every surface.
Our winters, harsh, long, bitter cold, dark and at times dreary. All worth it when May arrives!

I will close now and then will take my evening cup of tea and drink it down by the lake listening to this wonderful world. I just looked out of the window, Mr Cat is already there, he is probably waiting for me.

Be well,
Lene

  5. How beautiful. I find it truly fascinating to see how where we live in the world shapes our lives. The difference between your winter and summer seasons must be so extreme compared to mine here in North Wales but perhaps the harsh winters are compensated for by the springs!

    I love water, it is relaxing, exciting, soothing, exhilarating. I now live in the Midwest of the US, and beautiful water can be difficult to find with ease. Thank you for sharing.

  16. Such pretty pictures...I find myself coming back here just to see them again. I hope you don't mind, but I've actually set the third on as my screen's wallpaper here at work. The light in that one is so beautiful.

  19. I agree with you, when Spring finally comes it's worth getting excited about. I live in Arizona now, but I grew up in Northern Michigan where snow came in the middle of October and stayed until late May or even June. I miss the dramatic change between winter and summer nights, here it changes but it's not nearly so dramatic.

    Thank you for the beautiful pictures!
