We are trying really hard to think spring here when there is still four feet of snow on the ground in most places. I have decorated a few spots indoors with spring and Easter cheer to enjoy as I gaze out the windows to the white landscape lit up by the brilliant March sun. I almost need sunglasses on when I look outside as it's very hard on the eyes.
My chalkboards are stating that spring is on the way no matter what it looks like outside.
I found this tiny Campanula plant at the SuperStore last week and thought it was just the pop of spring colour I wanted for the coffee table....along with some spring green in the pillows and Jadeite plate and the purple violets on the bowl. The old book is one of Murray's father's called "Little by Little".....rather appropriate for our spring which returns little by little.
Note the postcard photos here. I'll do a separate post on them as I have some questions to ask of my Ontario readers if they might know of this place. It's a former tourist spot called Red Umbrella in Carnarvon Ontario. Watch for a post on this soon.
The china hutch is ready for Easter.
That's a looks at some spring decor inside. Do you want to see what's outside? Are you ready?
Note how low the snow is on our lighted snowman on the deck. This was taken this morning.
This was taken on Sunday and on Friday the snow was up to his hat brim. The snow is melting!!
It is currently 8C here at about 11:30 AM. Just a nice spring teaser for us as tomorrow's high will only be -5C. A typical March for us.
Yep. We still have lots of snow. (March 11)
Our driveway actually has some bare spots on it. There is a lot of heat in the sun these days and with longer daylight hours the changes will be noticeable unless it snows again ~ and it will. We're hoping for a slow and gradual melt so there won't be any flooding.
Here is what our total snowfall for December, January and February was for the Fredericton area....
320 cm. which translates to 125 inches or about 10 feet!! Don't forget that this snow settles and compacts so we didn't have the actual 10 feet of snow on the ground everywhere. And we aren't done with snow yet as there is some coming for the weekend. Now you can see why I enjoy decorating for spring early inside. It brings me a lot of cheer while we await the spring weather to enjoy outside.
Thanks for visiting and your well wishes for my cold. I'm still sniffling and blowing my nose but feeling so much better today. It was a doozy! We celebrated Murray's birthday last night and had a great time. He even took the day off and 'played' in the snow (snow removal). I haven't left the house since Thursday!! I might be getting a bit of cabin fever.
Have a great day!
