I just want to show some photos of Saturday around my house. A Saturday in JUNE, when I had the pleasure of documenting snow, rain, hail and sunshine over a period of about sixteen hours or so.
Very early Saturday morning, we started out with a light sprinkle of wet, cold snow.
The morning brought some gray, windy rain.
Which segued into a lovely hail.
Eventually some sunshine broke through and melted some of the hail, except the stuff in shade – along the fence.
Aaaand we ended with some more Rain? Sleet? I wasn’t going out there to check.
And that’s just one day, in one neighborhood. The thing with Calgary is, each area has its own microclimate, and it’s not at all unusual for the north end to get a hailstorm while the west gets some snow, and the south has a beautiful sunny day. Or the other way around. But above photos are proof that me starting a garden THIS YEAR is clearly very funny for someone upstairs.
