On Sunday afternoon we went for a walk and enjoyed the lovely sunshine with no wind.
After church we had a yummy brunch with Mark and Jenn at our house and birthday cupcakes for Murray then went to our son's and got the dogs and headed out.
We walked up through the old orchard that used to be part of the family farm. It was beautiful and sunny and the dogs had a grand time. Buckley and Ellie, the black labs (not purebreds), made an exciting escape chasing a deer for a while as we called and whistled for them to return. After about 20 minutes Buck came back then Ellie. Naughty dogs! Marshall is very blind so he stays on leash but I think the other two will be on leash the next time.
The trail was good as Mark and Jenn have been snowmobiling through here all winter. The old orchard is in bad shape and would need a hard pruning to bring the trees back to producing apples.
It was so pretty and quiet back in the woods. It's hard to believe how the fields on the left of this lane have grown up in birch trees etc. over the years.

We then headed out the power line.
Mark found a caterpillar of some kind on the snow. I wonder where he came from and where he was headed?
Can spring be on the way??
Heading back home.
It was great to get out on such a nice afternoon. The walking was pretty easy even on the softening snow but we didn't sink down. I guess the snowmobiles packed it pretty good. There is anywhere from one to two feet of snow on the trails.
It's calling for rain tonight and tomorrow and after 3 days of mild weather and part sunshine our snow will melt down a lot.
It is supposed to turn colder on Friday though and there may be snow on the weekend. Oh well, it won't last long.
How's your week going?
