May is a pious fraud of the almanac, A ghastly parody of real springShaped 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.
