Yes, that is snow! It came down fast and hard with a very cold wind on Saturday morning.
From snow to heat all within 24 hours. Where else can one enjoy the 4 seasons in a short time period.
What can I say.....it's Canada.
By the afternoon it looked like this although the wind was still quite cold.
Since then we've had temperatures in the upper 20's celsius which have been very welcome, I must say.
Wild violets, Forget-me-nots, Lily of the valley and Poppy
One of the vintage tables on our back deck. I added the old colander filled with beach finds - rocks and shells. The wire planter on the top shelf has a bird house and more beach finds.
The blue enamel pot now has flowers in it which I'll share another day.
We had a bit of excitement today when an insulator blew up and caught the power pole on fire out front of our house. The power crew came and repaired everything and we were only without power for 2 3/4 hours. I'm really thankful for these linesmen who work in all kinds of weather to restore power to customers.
When I went for my walk this evening I took a photo of the repair job. It's interesting that they used metal mounted on top of the wood pole.
I've made 2 trips to the greenhouse and bought plants. I'll have to take some photos of them tomorrow to share with you. I'm not buying as much this year and my bill is half what it was last year. I have to make up 2 planters tomorrow afternoon.....in the 30 degree heat. I'm not complaining though as we deserve it!
While on my walk this evening the air was filled with the sweet smell of wild apple and cherry blossoms. It was heavenly. As I'm typing the warm breeze is blowing in the windows and the peepers are 'singing' in the ponds. I love this time of the year. Don't you?
