It really was a red letter weekend -not only did I get one of my seed orders, but the weather started to warm up - a brilliant 8C! A stunning change from the minus 22C of last week. I know deep down inside, that I shouldn't be getting my hopes up just yet, but I'll take any kind of hope after all the snow we've had, even false hope, if it looks this good.
On Sunday it was 2C (35F). See what happens to snow packed pathways when the weather warms up - they turn into wonderful skating rinks.
I was able to sit on the rocks for a while - they felt warm (ok, not Florida warm, but not ice-cube cold either). Even the geese were pretending it was spring.
It was a shame there weren't more people out.
Isn't this a great colour?
It all looks so peaceful - what you don't see, is all the church goers scrambling for parking.
Can you believe it - that's grass on the right side of the path!
And, grass on my own front lawn around the Eastern White Pine - is that not fabulous! I tell you, I'm half thinking it's time to get that mower tuned. There's more warm weather this week - a 10C forecast for later in the week. Who knows, the next photos you see might be of me in the water with the geese?
