I thought I'd better post to let you know I'm still alive but very inactive on my blog.
We are trying to Think Spring here.
Our spring weather is still wintry for most of Canada it seems. We are winter weather weary! But, we know our spring weather is always delayed by weeks here so we remain hopeful.
This is Buddy.
I've spent the winter watching deer in our yard and birds at the feeders, and, keeping the decks cleared of snow. The deer in this pic I've named Buddy as he spends a lot of time in our yard and even has slept under the back deck. The deer have had a hard winter here with many deaths due to lack of food and car hits. I don't feed the deer but will throw out apples once in a while which they enjoy.
I went to Kings Landing for the Sugar Bush weekend in March. It was a very cold day but we had fun walking through the historic settlement taking pictures.
Do I look cold to you??
A foggy view of the St. John River valley on March 30.
The spring birds are back but I'm sure they're confused by all this white stuff still covering the ground and perhaps wondering why they came back so early. It is a joy to hear the bird songs though and the snow will soon go.
This is Buddy under our back deck looking in the (dirty) basement window at us. Isn't he adorable?? I don't think he'll fit under here when he gets bigger. I saw him yesterday and his antlers are starting to push out. Sadly, he's an orphan and has been shunned by the herd that is around the fields here but he seems to be managing and hangs out some with a few other orphans, like the twins that hang around.
We awoke to this fresh snow on this spring Saturday morning. It is starting to melt though.
We haven't been on any vacation this winter as my husband has been working away in Winnipeg Manitoba a lot where they've had a very cold winter. We are both looking forward to spring and summer, and perhaps a vacation trip. It's time to visit our grandkids again soon as well.
I took this photo last May 17th. Yes, we still have over a month before it even resembles spring here but it's worth it.
I hope you are well and enjoying spring where you live.
