It was beautiful here on saturday close to 15c clear blue skies, sat on deck, no snow on the ground, daffodils up and full of buds, found 3 crocus's in flower, it was gorgous. :D
Yesterday rained most of the day, about 5c, miserable and to top it off my son was playing his last ice hockey game of his junior career and skating back to pick up the puck he blew his knee out, he must have hit a rut in the ice as there was no one near him. :cry:

Well, all I can do here in Richmond, B.C. is count my blessings. Yesterday was a gloriously sunny day, temperatures went up to 12 on my patio, the daffodils are in bloom -at long last- and there's a ton of perennials breaking ground. And it's about time too, I figure we're about 2-3 weeks behind last year for most things.

Beautiful Daff . . . we had a wonderful weekend, warm and sunny and were out and about with our spring jackets on . . . today we are getting 25 or more cm of snow . . . it is very pretty as it is covering all the dirty stuff from the melting on the weekend.

My garden pictures include a bit of a record of spring's arrival in Northwestern Ontario:

... and the kicker, also from last year:

This year? As the history makes clear, it's way too early to tell! Three days ago the scene was much like that last picture, but it was 2C today, beautiful and sunny.

Love your photos Gwen and a nice way to remember that even with late storms, spring will will be here to stay soon.

This is Tuesday again, and I could use the same pic as last week.
Lots of yucky snow again!

We had a slight reprieve over the weekend

This was April 1 here on the Island, we've had a dry and cold winter this year. Lots of snow that stayed a long time. Some plants and trees that need the rain in the winter are showing signs of stress.
