SPRING ~ the season is finally here.
But.....the weather didn't get the memo.
We are having a good old spring nor'easter here today covering our world in white. Schools are closed in the southern half of the province which should be the last storm day of this year. We could get about 15 cm. of snow by the time it is passed by this evening. However, looking at the long range forecast, I see another storm possible for Good Friday. Oh well, it is spring and it won't last.
A friend who loves to build and refinish old furniture made this wood box for me. I love it and the soft blue paint is perfect. I will have a lot of fun decorating it for different occasions. The tulips are on their way out but made the photo op yesterday afternoon along with the daffodils I purchased in support of the Canadian Cancer Society. I have a collection of old cream bottles and a great old Safety Seal jar lined up in the box for now.
A week ago last Saturday our son brought his mini-excavator up to move our old small shed to his home just down the road. He and Murray edged it on to the trailer and our view is different now.
The old small shed and the new much larger one that was built last November. We have a lot of work to clean up that corner getting rid of the old fence, and the shed needs to have vinyl siding put on it this spring. We are planning to put new siding on the house too and perhaps some other major renovations to the house. The old trees will be cut down as well as they are a hazard. We worry about them falling on our house, garage or shed.
It was interesting to watch Mark work alongside his dad. He really knows how to handle that excavator.
Nudging the shed onto the trailer.
And....our new view. Murray's man cave. :) I must say I like the new shed (which has large double doors on the upper end) but it does block 'my' view of the hill and some sunlight later in the day. We'll see how much sun doesn't shine on the deck this summer. I love sun!
At sunset one night last week there was a curious cloud formation.
Note - there is hardly any snow!
How many hearts to you see? How much snow do you see?
So, while I will enjoy the Spring look inside.....
I'll be dreaming of warm sunny summer days to come on our deck and pergola.
I hope you have a wonderful week leading up to Easter weekend. It will be a busy one for us as we participate in the music program at our church.
Thank you for visiting. I hope to post again before Friday.
