Last day of April

“April is the cruellest month,” wrote T.S. Eliot. Indeed.

This past week involved too many research papers (and there are more), too many taxes (and there are more), and too much snow (and there is more). It’s spring! And still snowing! Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow?

On the plus side: it is 4ºC. Plus.

And somewhere, in other green(er)-grassed provinces, crocuses and daffodils are a-blooming. (Here I suspect all we have are snowdrops.)

Truth be told, I do enjoy snow. From October to March. September’s a wee bit early, and April’s a tad late in the season for us still to be wearing snow gear.

“Where are the songs of spring?”

Here are a few April spring snow scenes:

Tomorrow is May Day. I’ll post a suitable pic if I remember.

Happy May, everybody!
