I don't have the skills to take pics of what I saw but I'll try and describe it. At 3:30am I was outside and the Northern lights were in the south. They were dancing across the sky just like they normally do but in the wrong direction. There were so many the stars were not visible and the colors were not like normal either. These were white with just a faint tint of the colors they can achieve. Pretty wild show I can tell you. No sound with them either unless you count the one lonesome goose on the slough.

Thought this would be a nice bump to the thread especially now that color is here again.

Since May 1st we have had one morning without frost, this morning it was 41F at 5am. Tonight it is supposed to go down to 20F and I do appreciate your pictures of colors as there ain't much here but a little green to go with the brown.

Has been in the 80's several time already including yesterday and today. One thing.............so far it's been a bad pollen season and we haven't had much rain. Freaken pollen all over the place - especially cars. Have had to wash mine 3 times in the past 2 weeks. Glad the winter is over but I wish it would rain good for a day or 2.

Driest up here it has been since I can remember for June 3rd. Left to do a job at 5am and got home depressed at the quality of the crop. Walked by the East side of our house and saw something to lift anyone's spirits.


Looks like by tomorrow it'll be a smorgasbord for the insects.

The moon coming up is a beautiful orange color due to the smoke in the air, so I figured I'd snap 3 pics for ya.




Even zoomed in for one.


Now you know why I try to describe stuff with words.

Today I got asked to do a ride along on a trip into Saskatchewan 150 miles. Thought I'd post the pics here as there is some color and as always the pics are lousy but you may see that this part of Saskatchewan is rather flat and the amount of geese is crazy. I/we guessed we saw several millions of geese today. I tried to take pics of just 4 sloughs close enough to show some birds.







Not a bird
