Images of Spring in Nome:
Spring sunshine coaxing the willow blossoms:
Raise your heads. After the long, cold, dark winter, there is life again!
The edge of the “lead” where the ice is opening up
Standing on the edge. Hope this piece of ice doesn’t break off!
The widening lead. These tracks used to connect to the ice across the way.
Rotting ice looks so cool!
So blissful to be in the warm sunshine by open water. I don’t think I’ll ever take it for granted again!
Live music on the beach:
Lovely spring evening, good people, good music, great fire!
Stunning sunset–this doesn’t even begin to capture it!
Big fire builder!
Cabin doorstep on West Beach:
All the stems with buds are new growth. It’s a short, fast growing season here, and with the long days of light plants just grow and grow!
I just made this because it’s so fitting for the harsh Arctic tundra and these soft, fuzzy-headed, glowing willow blossoms!
