Different Hues of the Lake

Every dusk looks dreamy, every dawn is magic… there is something about the lake at backside of my house. Today it is the colour of Krishna! So blue, so ethereal, so serene, took my breath away. Behold the hues!

And a few days back… it was like this charming reddish-yellow. Where does it get the colours from?

If only we had the time to look… we would see wonders everyday!

Messengers of Spring

After a long wintry wait, messengers of Spring flew by my home announcing – Spring is finally here!

The Lake heard them and began to melt!

A dainty flower blushed deep pink and adjusted the green frills around her.

Yellow grasses got up, shook off snow and embraced each other..

Kids got the message and took out their bikes…

A fitness enthusiast headed outdoors…

And….I brought out my brown chair to inhale the deep freshness of Spring! Yes, Spring is finally here. We’ve all got the message! 😀

The Lake, Wild Flowers and Sunset!

Behold how the lake looks this summer after months of staying frozen and white! Yellow, white, purple and pink wild flowers outline the shimmery delight while the departing Sun gently touches it with scarlet and gold. Suddenly, it is full of life with sweet birds, butterflies and insects. Truly, what a transformation!

Below is the lake in winters….

Amazing, isn’t it! Change is the only constant!

Mystic Sunset

As I caught the Sun leaving for the day, I realized that every sunset is different. Sometimes it is mysterious, other times gorgeous, on some days arresting and at times, spiritual. Today, it was mystic with brilliant orange around it. These days, the lake is frozen. I am eagerly waiting for summer evenings to catch the Sun’s reflection on this lovely lake.

Yes, It’s Freezing!

It is that time of the year again when venturing out becomes a Herculean Task in otherwise nice Minnesota. In January, the beautiful state turns frigid, harsh and difficult. Here are some pictures as the temperature continues to tease and freeze the residents. Today, it is down to -24 degrees centigrade, but the golden Sun is shining, extending much needed cheer and warmth.
