First of the month, last of the snow?Posted: April 1, 2017
Last night’s snowfall started as rain and then turned to heavy, wet snow. Not the pretty stuff that that blows into drifts either. More like wet clumps that slowly shrink to reveal mud and bits of winter’s trash. As I sketched today I watched what might be the last traces of winter melt and drip down the wheelbarrow and the fence and the shed. But maybe winter is not really over, even though we are officially into spring. Flakes have been known to fall in Montreal as late as May so there may be one more wheelbarrow sketch to come.
