This tulip broke off from its stem so I put it in a vase of water. The next day the stem had curled up like this so I gave it a photo shoot. So beautiful.
Just like this tulip is gone.....February is gone.....and we welcome the new month of March. The first day came in like a lamb here so we'll see how the month progresses weather-wise. It was sunny but the wind blew cold and tomorrow it will be rainy and on the plus side again.
On the bright side....the time will change to day-light saving time on the 13th and spring arrives a week later on the 20th. Well....spring will arrive in some parts of the world but spring really doesn't arrive here until May.
I looked out the window the other day and noticed two hearts in the driveway frozen in the snow but the rest had melted around them. It was the way Murray pulled up and backed in to the parking area that left the marks. I decided to do a little editing in Picasa and brighten them up from the original grey and white tones. The result ~ modern art!
This is what one of our gardens looks like. Pretty awful isn't it? The frost has heaved everything, including the garden lights and bird bath. My brick inukshuk has tipped over too. The ground is still frozen. The roads around here are terrible with frost heaves and cracks and pot holes. We have to drive so much slower so as not to damage our cars and therefore allot more time to go anywhere. Yes, the roads are paved. LOL They really need a lot of work.
The end of the full snow moon on Saturday morning.
A sun dog late this first day of March as the sun was going down.
We actually enjoyed our supper while it was still daylight out tonight! Sunset was at 6:15 today so it was still light until after 6:30. I love that!
I've started some spring decorating inspired by this sweet lampshade I found at Walmart. The vignette above has already changed as of today as I bought some new cushions yesterday. I'll share some photos of them and the new spring look soon. Think coral and turquoise and spring green. :)
I think I need to change my header photo soon too. It looks way too wintery now.
Thank you for your suggestions on programs to watch on Netflix. I appreciate your response. Some of them we have already watched and some we can't get here in Canada.
This time last year we were visiting our daughter and family in Alberta but didn't go for our usual February visit this year. The first photo I took was after we got home was on March 5 and the sunset looked like this.
Look at all that snow!! And we had two huge storms in mid-March to add to that. What a difference this year.
So we welcome this new month with its promise of spring and longer days. We may see snow like the photo above but that's ok as it won't last long.
Are you seeing signs of spring yet?
