It is such a delight to get out and walk this time of year. I am especially enjoying the transition from the frozen world of ice and snow into fluid, flowing water again. According to MPR, the last ice on Lake Minnetonka has finally melted. I guess that means that spring is really here to stay! Here are some photos from my walks this week.
While walking around Lake Calhoun the other day, I was struck by the sound of the last bits of ice pushing up against the south shore. It was such a lovely rhythmic sound, full of swishing and crunching. I was also entranced by the way the light was dancing on the freshly thawed water. Perhaps that is why I have been dreaming about so many sparkles lately?
