May is a pious fraud of the almanac, A ghastly parody of real spring
Shaped out of snow and breathed with eastern wind;
– James Russell Lowell


Focus:  Still Life

Spring has been delayed, folks.  Hopefully, not permanently.  Personally, I did not expect that my first two photos of May would look so wintry.  Even though I know snow is possible in Denver virtually any month of the year (well, okay, maybe not July or August), it is still a shock to see it in the month of May.  I like snow.  I really do.  I would even go so far as saying I love it.  Just not in May.

Snow in October?  Sure, why not.

November?  Great – time to wax those skis.

December?  A holiday wonderland!

January?  Perfect for snowmen and hot chocolate

February? Whoohoo, let’s snuggle by the fire 🙂

March?  Blizzard season at its best.

April?  Getting a little old, but spring snows are expected.

May?  Alright, enough already.


Sorry, winter, you’ve arrived too late, and overstayed your welcome.  It’s time to go home.
