Winter's Last Gasp

Icey-17

The ice and snow are gone now, but before they disappeared, I took one more run at Old Man Winter. This ice sculpture is actually about the size of a dime. The blue is reflected from the sky. And each tiny yellow/orange jewel is a reflection of the setting sun.

ah - ah ----- i mean, D, there are no words.........

This is a JEWEL. A delicate diminutive TREASURE.

Too bad photos can't be made into jewelry...though I guess the picture could be put in a locket or something, talk about a treasure...

Way to carpe the season for all it was worth my friend.....

So Winter gasps his last, and off into Spring we go.......

"...it's enough to be on your way...it's enough to cover ground...it's enough to be movin' on....."

Springing forward then...

H,
Your comment brought a big smile to my face. Even your comments are brilliantly written. I'm gonna google your name AND The New Yorker in the same search. I won't be a bit surprised when I come up with a bunch of "hits".

not difficult to "write brilliantly" when the subject matter is brilliant, my friend...

Truly a treasure, a gem, a jewel...

thanks, as always, for the gift...

I thought the same thing gentleman. It is breathtaking, Dan.

I am headed to the Butterfly Exhibit with the kids today. I will have to send you a picture that I took a few years ago. It is priceless.

Have a good week!
