Reflect upon…

Where are you, Spring?

So I just found this film image – shot it in my neighborhood on March 4th, last year. Hmm…I have difficulty to think that I’d be able to see this again in 3 days – especially after seeing some snow falling yesterday! :( Where are you, Spring? +++ ©Mariko Evans

Lovely to find beautiful autumn colour leaves here, especially after (sort of) suffering from over 30°C  heat in La Habana. : ) Some rainfall warnings issued for Metro Vancouver for upcoming days :'( I hope those beautiful leaves hold onto trees!

Time to dance.
