melting snow and Good Fences




fence posts for barbed wire fencing in the foreground

Monday was one of those beautiful spring days where the sun and warm 19C temperature was working it's magic on the landscape here.  I went for a walk, farther than I'd planned, and took some photos.  The above and below ones are the same 'pink toned' iPhone photo spot I shared in my last post.  It looks much better taken with my camera!




The nearby pond is starting to show signs of rotting ice.


Even the ducks at the apple farm were out for a walk in the yard.


Another brook is running free.




A Christmas tree farm with a view.  The flag is tattered from the strong winter winds.


Another field of Christmas trees.  I expect a lot of this snow is gone today after 4 days of sunny warm weather.  I'll have to take another walk to find out.  :)




The next farm field with a view of the river valley.


The farm field on the upper side of the road is one where the deer like to hang out when they aren't in the field behind us.   How many do you see?


On my drive to the city yesterday I noticed how much the snow had melted everywhere and that the ice is pretty well out of the St. John River below the Mactaquac Dam.  When I drove along the river in Fredericton's downtown last Thursday it was solid white ice.  Yesterday the ice was gone and the river was a bit fuller.  

It's nice to be able to wear shoes and a spring jacket again!  Although some people must think it's warm enough to go in bare legs/feet/arms when it's 10C and really windy!  Not me.  However, I did put the AC on in the car as it was so hot in the sun and I find the 'cool' vent on full blast just doesn't seem to work for me.  :)  

I'm joining Theresa for Good Fences.

Have a great day!

Blessings,
Pam

  4. I love the images where the snow is breaking up and you can see the ground beneath it. It must feel wonderful to wear lighter clothes again. I hope that spring has its full force now and chases all signs of winter away.

  7. The spring shots are lovely!

    I definitely see four deer- there may be a fifth in the field as well, and possibly one up in the trees.

    1. Well that wasn't exactly a "hi." Yes, I am trying to hold my footprint long enough to comment.

      It would be interesting to see what they look like today. When I note the difference a few days make, it flabbergasts me. Your comment about needing the AC in the car made me grin. Yup, I do, too.

  11. I bet after the winter you had it's good to see bare ground showing up again. It's such lovely country and the deer were fun to see. I counted at least 7 in the photo.

  12. Spring is here! I think it's interesting that as much as we complained about the snow this year, others had more than we did. It sure looks like you did. Ours at least is 99.9% gone. It's only still around where it was piled so high you couldn't see above it. A friend of mine posted a photo on Facebook earlier this week of her daughter standing on one of those piles of snow with a sleeveless dress on. That's just the way spring is around here. Love your photos!

  18. We are Canadian Pam! I went out in short sleeves today (sweater in the car just in case) and it was great. The boots and winter coat are put away but no A/C in the car yet - put the windows down and let the country breeze refresh me until I get too cold. :-)
    It's so nice to see you folks coming out from under winter's grasp, it's about time!

  24. Hi Pam! Oh, isn't it wonderful to actually see some ground without snow on it? :) Around here folks are saying because of the harsh winters, Spring is so welcomed and it even gives your spirit a renewal. I think I agree! :)
    Thanks for popping in to see me and I love hostas!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  33. Beautiful photo's Pam. Did the snow all go now? It has been there for such a long time. Love the stroling ducks.
    Have a nice weekend

  34. It has to have warmed up by now a bit more Pamela? Tell me that the snow is going going gone?

    It is the first warmer day here...when you can truly stand in the shade without wanting to move into the sun to warm up.

    Wow...had I taken a look at your sidebar I probably could have found every missing blogger's URL that I was searching for...we read a lot of the same blogs...great minds Pamela.

  35. That melting snow is such a beautiful sight! I just love those wide open spaces and big, big sky! The photo with the little evergreens against the tall, bare trees is my favorite today. I counted 6 deer, but then again, I need new glasses :) Hope all that snow is gone soon. The sound of trickling snow melt must be music to your ears! Hugs and Blessings xo Karen

  36. I'm sure you can't wait for the snow to melt, it'll be worth it when it does. From someone who doesn't see much snow in the winter, these are lovely scenes.

  37. It is lovely to get out for walks again without boots etc.
    We have more snow then you do here though but slowly melting away.

    Have a good week.
