Robert C. Wetton stopped on the Houghton side of the bridge to take a photo of the Hancock side of the bridge, with her reflection in the waters of the canal. Even though everything is still gray and drab, there's beauty to behold. I like the way he made sure the Portage Lift Bridge graces the corner of the photo. Nicely done, RCW!

Meanwhile, down south of us here in the Keweenaw, they received a bit of snowfall this past Friday and Brenda Leigh went out to capture the bright colors of her flowers against the white background of snow before it all melted away hours later. Brenda lives in the Menominee area and she reported that they had about three inches of the white stuff, but it was pretty much melted by late afternoon. Living here in the U.P., you can expect to get a few spring time snowfalls, but they never last long and are always great ways to add some moisture to the ground for more flowers to bloom. I love the way Brenda captured the droplets of water on the tip of that brilliant, red tulip. Good eye Ms. Leigh!

Me too, Deb. My home was on Center St, the first street on the right as you turn to go into Hancock. Another few weeks and I will be up to open the cottage in Eagle Harbor!

Nice pictures today! I especially love the snow crystals on the blooms. Good thing spring flowers are cold-tolerant. Thanks for sharing, Brenda and Robert!

I especially like the melting snow on the flowers and tulip.
