Cat and Buddha



April 21, 2014. Scene from the front hall on top of the booklshelf. That's Bart, at right, beside a bucket of leaves and a bamboo Buddha. The photo is one I tool about 8 years ago of Victoria Park. Spend the whole day on the computer working on the LPSS program implementation plan.

Crocus



April 20, 2014. Another new appearance in the garden, this solitary purple crocus. I had the worst time getting it to focus in my camera, even on the macro setting. Quiet day, all indoors, reading email and watching baseball.

The Radio Tower



April 19, 2014. This was my target for a relatively modest 25km bike ride in cold blistery weather. It's out along Berry Mills Road just in from the highway. Pictured is Zack Road.

After the Flood



April 17, 2014. This is the pond just outside my office the day after the flood. It got cold last night and the surface froze, and then as the water receded we get what you see here - a thin layer of ice draped over everything like a crispy blanket. I watched and listened to them collapse as the sun came out (it's all mlted now).

Flooding



April 16, 2014. So this is what I faced on my way to the office today; as you can see the road is completely flooded and barricaded. There's flooding all over the city, the worst in Moncton since we moved here in 2001.

Spring Forest



April 15, 2013. The last bits of snow in this forest picture had melted by this afternoon as spring finally, at long last, begins its return to Moncton (we'll ignore the ice pellets forecast for tomorrow).
