There is a hint of melting going on along the edges
of Kenai Lake. We are being blessed with
warm spring air. It reached 84 degrees on the deck, and
the temperature away from the house was averaging in
in the high 50's. It reached 58 degrees at our house and it was
still 43 degrees at ten pm. We heard that its suppose to snow on Sunday
and Monday in Seward!
The rabbits were enjoying the warm air and green grass thats starting to
peek out from under the snow.
I saw my first butterfly!!!! Totally exciting!!!
There is still however a lot of snow on the ground and on the mountains.
I'm wondering if it's all going to melt this summer since we had
a record snowfall this year.
I found some fish bones from last falls salmon along
the exposed lake shoreline.
I have collected these for years and store them in a container, I think
they are beautiful!
Everywhere there were signs of melting!!
The shoreline docks were resurfacing.
It's amazing how such little things can make a person so happy!
This leaf caught my eye...it's melted its way through the ice
under the warm sun.
Yay, the melt is underway!!!!
This has been a long awaited spring and
I like everyone else in Alaska is
really appreciating the warm weather.
I had a great walk today and my friend the Stellar Jay checked on
me as I hiked along the lake.
It was wonderful day!!!
Definitely a day of rebirth after a long winter!
