Brought to You by the Letter “S”

Sun Dial

Sun Dial © 2008 Bo Mackison

The calendar says spring. Who looks at calendars anyway? It’s time to rely on ancient wisdom and consult the snow dial.

Let’s see. Thursday, March 27, 2008, 10:52 am, CDT. Ah, the snow dial says it’s SNOWING. Those ancients are pretty darn smart. They are correct.

This photograph is brought to you by the letter “S”. “S” is for Spring. “S” is for Snow. “S” is for Snowy-Spring. (with my fond regards to Sesame Street – maybe I’ll go sit with Bert and Ernie for awhile and stew)

“S” is for Sigh!

But “S” is also for Smile.

  10. Brilliant – sincerely and smile, this beautiful shot made me do! wonderful!

  11. The snow with the colorful sundial photo is actually very nice. Smile…. Here in Kansas it is cold and wet and in between as in the transition between winter and spring. A little budding on the trees but no color. Gray skies and brown earth for the early spring.
