This seagull had the perfect spot to enjoy everything going on at MacMillan Wharf. Such an interesting place to hang out… whether you’re a seagull or a person!
We were in our way home from the gym and it was really foggy outside. Just as we drove by the Salt Pond we could see the sun trying to peek through the fog.
Thinking we might get a nice photo over Nauset Marsh, we stopped the car at Hemenway Landing. We sure were not disappointed. Gorgeous, don’t you think? Looks like bolt of lightning piercing the sun…
We had to wait for the snow to melt this year before we could see the delicate, white Snowdrop wildflowers blooming on the hillside under the trees. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
1. “Snowdrops were named after earrings not drops of snow.
2. There are more than 2,500 varieties of snowdrop wildflowers.
3. They are symbolic of spring, purity and religion.
4. Snowdrops are one of the first flowers to appear in the new year. In the northern hemisphere snowdrops can be seen appearing as early as January, weather permitting. They usually flower between the months of January and April.”
