"It's the Sunday of a long weekend and I will not be staying home!"
That's my declaration for this day!
Yet, I didn't want a long drive nor a long hike on this Sunday of the May long weekend. I picked Forgetmenot Pond and area as it is a short drive and a short stroll around the Pond. While the forecast was for rain in the city, it was for snow out there. That peaked my interest as I knew that would escalate the level of prettiness.
The first gate opened May 15th.
I was the only vehicle at the Forgetmenot Pond Parking Lot. Loads of vehicles were passing on by in a mass exodus from the Little Elbow Campground area. I bundled up against the weather and crossed the bridge to begin strolling around the Pond.

I had a hard time keeping my lens clear of snow flakes. They were the wet, big, heavy accumulating kind. Even though I geared up against those, I was still cold and got very wet. No complaining though, I was strolling, not hiking at any break neck pace. The prettiness was too much to just pass on by.
