Thank you all so much for your kind words of encouragement in my last post. You are wonderful friends and I appreciate you so much. I did get out this morning and found many signs of spring in our yard. The birds were singing and chirping and the sun is shining after a day of rain.
Just look what I found! The crocus were up this morning and about to bloom! This is along the foundation wall at the south end of the house and they were under over 2 feet of snow on Saturday. The sun, warm temperatures and rain melted the snow away to reveal their beauty.

Murray shovelled out the paths a bit yesterday so the water can flow. He also removed my Christmas wreath from the shed door! Can you see a bit of difference in the snow depth? I can.
We are thankful we didn't get as much rain as predicted yesterday but parts of the province did get a lot and there are flood and ice jam concerns on a few rivers. Some roads were flooded and washed out too.
Have you ever taken a selfie? You may (or may not) have noticed I have a new profile picture. I've been wanting to change it for a few months now since I got new glasses in January. I had
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a beautiful day.
