Hello Sunshine !
We were driving around town yesterday and I mentioned to Mr B how spring is so darn messy. He quickly reminded me that spring is still two months away. I guess I forgot since I’ve had to forgo my winter boots for spring boots on more than one occasion.
Plus, I get all excited reading Blogs of friends in the south, who’s rose bushes are beginning to grow and garden pots are happily basking in the sun with new flowers. My friend PJ is already getting her seeds organized 🙂 So, while we’re beginning to enjoy some mild days, the reality in the north is we could very well see a couple more major snow storms. Signs of spring are far more subtle in my neighbourhood. First you might see a little grass peeking out along a sidewalk.
Then a little oasis of lawn might appear under the boughs of your large garden trees.
If you look really, really close (and make a hopeful squint) you might actually see a few blades of green grass.
These moments can be fleeting and today we’re back to -7 C or 19 F. Still, that’s plenty preferable to the record low for today. On February 18th, 1885 it was -41 C, yikes! Unfortunately, it’s bound to be like this for another couple of months. A few nice days followed by a number of cool days. No need to break out my garden gloves just yet 😦 It might seem like it’s almost spring but in reality, it’s almost winter.
