Can Spring Be Far Behind?


“Detroit River Fog” © R.L. Herron

Speaking of fog:  The weather is starting to cooperate a bit. Crocuses are starting to emerge, and you can just see the buds beginning on some trees. Signs of new life, and one of the reasons I so thoroughly enjoy springtime.

Still, the days are often wet and cold and dreary, and look anything but promising. Like this image of a freighter, moving slowly through the fog, south down the Detroit River, from Lake St. Clair.

It hardly seems to hold much promise . . . until you realize the ice is gone from the river, and traffic along it is moving again.

In its own way, it’s very much a sign of spring. Makes me want to write.
