Ides of March ice treasures, Lake Geneva

Lake Geneva sends mixed signals to the shoreline

Sun-warmed lichen on one side of the rock, wind-iced waves on the other: the ides of March, when the seasons begin to turn

High winds, waves and arctic air leave icy traces on the shores of Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

It is nearly the ides of March, when Caesar moved into history and when, traditionally, the seasons begin to turn. We hope that means that tomorrow will feel like Spring.

The ides of March also follow my sister Tara's birthday, which I missed, so here is a touch of wonder for Tara, from Lake Geneva.
