• it was snowing / sleeting / raining again today, so I’ll dip back into my old spring archive for some green : this is from June 2013, taken with my trusty iPhone 4s (!) • also: this month marks my 8 year anniversary on instagram 🎉 (I still miss those old days, when it felt so quiet & convivial here, & we could all get to know one another without ads or celebrities or algorithms... but huge thanks to everyone who is still with me!) 💚 •

• ok Spring, we’re so ready for you • 💚 (it’s starting, for sure, but so far nothing to show but little buds & shoots appearing, so this is from May 2016) • 🌱•

• another favorite gone 💔 • I know I shouldn’t get so attached, but every time the city cuts down one of the trees I’ve been watching through the years & seasons, my heart breaks a little. Goodbye to this twisty, expressive beauty. • (first photo, Feb 1 // second, currently 😢) •

• the day after the coldest days • it was a reasonable 15f (-9c) this evening; icebergs gathering on the frozen lake • (it’s hard to tell the scale here, but this one was about as big as a city bus) • happy weekend, friends 💖 •
