The fabled season of rebirth is being elusive here in the Berkshires; a steady diet of cold, damp, foggy weather has been punctuated by bright days and the first wildflowers.

Here are a few shots from this past week.

A foggy dawn on the Chickley River:

Colt’s foot, with its lush flowers and strangely leafless stems, sprouts in the gravel at roadside:

Water fowl cruise the beaches and sand bars of the Deerfield:

The sheep have been shorn:

…And love is in the air.  A wild tom turkey struts like a tipsy frat boy for an obviously disinterested hen:

…while a local Scottish Highland bull does, well, what bulls do:

randy gets some

Notice how impressed his date is.

Anyway, it’s coming, I mean, “imminent.”  And I’m talkin’ about Spring!
