Snow in April



Snow on the deck at

Blue Limestone


On way

to see how it

would look,

There was a “white out!”

Snow made the silence

more evident with no

fisherman on opposite area

of the unused quarry.

    • Thank you, Jen. πŸ™‚ I appreciate your feeling entranced. This is only about an 8 minute walk from my apt but with snow, I drove here.
      I am happy you were curious. This is an observing deck and where people feed the fish or ducks. People who like to fish (have to get a permit if over 12 years old) are supposed to go to the other side of the quarry, far from here. This is to prevent their nylon fishing lines getting tangled up with ducks or visiting geese paddling, webbed feet. There are flat rocks and natural areas that are good to sit on while fishing. There are three quarry lakes which have long ago been abandoned. Have a special Thursday and nice, peaceful momentsinto the weekend, Jen <3.

  1. Beautiful photo, Robin. We had near white out conditions here last week, There is something interesting about it happening in April. I hope you get to see spring soon.

    • You experienced much more than the short hour I was out in this weather, Dan.
      I tried so many ways to capture the snow falling which was more like “pellets” than flakes!

    • Sheila, if you get a chance, I suggest you push the above link to the left (of three choices of posts to view). Since you mentioned liking this “snow or not,” I think the lavender asters will captivate you on another side of the quarry lake. ❀ ❀
      Hugs for you and Slow from Robin πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • Jill, this is the park I like to walk to often. If you would like to remind yourself of how this looked in the Autumn, there is an above link which has lavender asters along the edge of the gray blue rocks of this quarry.
      By the way, my old friend Bill and I buy large coffees, sit and chat here once a month, almost any weather! πŸ™‚

  2. Looks Lovely even if it is April πŸ˜‰ We had snow over the weekend in PA as well, big fluffy flakes the size of quarters…just gorgeous! But I was equally glad to see it all melt in the afternoon when the sun came out πŸ™‚

    • Oh, I wish we had flakes the size of quarters, Morgan! Our snow was like pellets which kind of stung my face! I appreciate your seeing the beauty here in the Ohio local park I walk to. I realize many are busy but if you come back another day, there is a fall photo with lavender asters growing along the edge of this quarry lake. The link is above on the left. πŸ™‚ Hope your April is warming up!

  3. Yes! April has been much like winter despite all the blossoming trees…feels nice though! This picture is so much in harmony with your thoughts and the cool weather. Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed week dear friend.

    • Thank you, Balroop for your lovely philosophical perspective. I like the idea of my thoughts being in harmony with what I was experiencing on this snowy day. I am glad this post pleased you, which made me happy to know. Sending you blessings, dear. ❀

    • Diana, thank you for loving how snow softens the edges of photos and it does seem to make it appear pretty.
      I was feeling the pellets of snow, a few tears coming down my face with a need for a dry tissue, I stood in various positions for almost an hour. . . it was rather exciting and glorious to see!
      They are predicting 60’s and possibly sunny, too, over the weekend. Wishing you a happy rest of the week. πŸ™‚

    • Anneli, I felt the same way about these pellets, no graceful floating snowflakes here! Then, I tried over and over to get the effect of all the snow which was densely coming down. None of the photos reflected the true depth of white. I don’t know why. I stayed an hour trying to capture the scene. Glad you liked it anyway and I always like your honest appraisal, dear friend.

    • Mike, thanks for liking the scene which you added a funny line, Winter’s last gasp! For most of the hour, the sun was hiding but it brightened up the snow pellets which felt like BB’s hitting my face. πŸ™‚

    • Andrew, so glad your “inner country” self appreciated the winter snow on a spring day. Nice description. It did give me a sense of serenity in this quiet scene. I posted about this in the Fall and luckily wordpress added a link to the lavender asters that grow around this quarry lake.

    • You are correct on most cold days, Sylvia. It is just strange but the place happened to be deserted on this snowy day. I really did have the place to myself! πŸ™‚

  4. Great photo of the snowflakes hitting the water. Nothing like a little spring snow, the latest it ever snows here is March…it has actually already been almost 90 degrees already. Thanks for sharing Robin!

  5. Ooooh Robin… your photo is snOw pretty! Sleet is not pleasant, though :-/ Hope the ice is done with and you get lots of lovely spring weather soon! Our snow melted early, this year… woohoo!!! It seems kinda strange to see you guys having April snow showers, while we’re actually getting April rain! πŸ™‚ β™₯ ❀
