I have to apologize for being MIA for so long. I don't think I've ever gone this long without posting something. But now that things are starting to warm up here in Vermont (this week being an exception) and I've gotten our community garden plot squared away, I'm sure I'll have more to talk about.
These are just two random pictures I took of Lake Champlain a while back. They're nothing to write home about and don't highlight some of the spectacular mountain views you can see from the shore, but on this day, we came across some bird watchers and even spotted a few Bald Eagles circling in the sky. (I was sorely disappointed that I'd neglected to bring along my telephoto lens.) We're really looking forward to exploring the nearby forests and mountains this summer.
We're finally getting some much needed rain this week, though it might end up being a bit too much. I don't remember the last time we've had a spring this dry. The soil in the raised beds behind our townhouse had begun to take on that grey sandy dust bowl-ish look. Hopefully this is not the start of another wacky year of weather. This past winter was wacky enough.
