All Things Pleasant on the Lake

The third week of April was very much another week of winter here on the lake. We were even “iced in” for a while as driving sleet and freezing rain left a thick coating of ice on lakeside windows. Nevertheless, we broke out in sunny smiles when we realized that the Hollinger ice boat was out in the storm, zipping about on the frozen lake!

All Things Pleasant on the Lake

Wonderful things are beginning to happen as Lady Spring approaches our part of the world. Sun is rising ever more north along the ridge tops. Pussy willows are busy creating their furry little catkins. Goldfinch are putting away their winter coats and looking brighter every day.

All Things Pleasant on the Lake

This week’s snowstorm made no secret of its presence and we found ourselves quickly buried in more than a foot of lovely white down. Adirondacks that we were hoping to sit in just days ago are once again buried. Feeders have been busy, busy with everyone happily gathered round the laden tables.

All Things Pleasant on the Lake

Even though the calendar has turned to March, there are ample opportunities to run outside and play in the snow! Skiing is excellent in the mountains, lakes are still frozen and forests beckon for your hiking pleasure. And for added excitement, the sap is running!

All Things Pleasant on the Lake

These words were written by John Muir in 1901. Spending time outside, being part of the natural world, is perhaps even more of a necessity in our world today. Nature took every opportunity to keep us engaged this past week! First a lovely snowfall, clinging to every branch and twig.

All Things Pleasant on the Lake

Sunrise reflects on an icy lake which has been inviting skaters and ice boaters out to play. Several warmer days recently have given us all spring fever. Spring fever here on the northern lakes always makes us think about the return of our dear loons.

All Things Pleasant on the Lake

Snow banks are piled high around the lake. The last snowstorm covered most of the lake, but bottomless black ice shows itself in some windswept areas. There is nothing quite like venturing out on the frozen lake and “walking on water”! The Scotties race about, stopping to roll in windswept snow waves, then charging on in gay, joyous abandon.

All Things Pleasant on the Lake

Moon has smiled her lovely smile down on us each night, warming our hearts during this frigid cold. Bright sunny days have created blue ice and snow. Looking down from Mt. Sunapee, we can see that even the big lake is now frozen solid. Fern Frost blossoms on windowpanes, creating fantasy worlds of mythical birds, intricate mazes and wild icy seas.

All Things Pleasant on the Lake

So interesting watching lake ice form. The lake seems to grow tired of movement, becomes still, and silently drifts off to sleep under a silvery mantle. Snow falls, and she snuggles beneath a quilt of snowflake down.
