FIRST DAY OF SPRING!!!!!

It's only 1c now but it's supposed to go up to +8c this afternoon. The furnace is still pumping out the heat and there are clouds holding back the sunlight BUT I'LL TAKE IT!! I can see about half of my patio stones and yesterday Kazi considered going out back with some hot water and getting rid of the remaining snow, maybe have a little "patio" time! (She didn't)


Here I am out for an "urban hike" yesterday. The day started off at -8c but warmed up gradually. That weird military-looking installation is NOT London's missile defence system...no, it's actually a fountain in downtown London that usually looks like this:


Yeah...spring has not exactly SPRUNG yet...but then there's this...


...and where there's snowdrops, there's hope! (I took this photo from inside through a window as they are still surrounded by large piles of snow so it's not the best quality.)

I'm feeling a little low right now and could really use some more signs of spring - do you have any??

    It is full on allergy season here on Vancouver Island. All the blossoming trees are in bloom plus daffodils and the odd early tulip. I was afraid to post those pictures for fear of losing Northern readers :) Those snow drops are sure hearty.

    I will not complain.

    Oh so promising seeing your snowdrops. We are being hit by another Winter storm and roads have been closed due to accidents. When you finally come back to P.E.I. there may still be snow. Worst Winter I have ever seen in over 30 years. So glad you didn't have to experience it. The driving has been very unsafe.
    Sounds as if you are really enjoying your retirement. You must be getting excited about going on your next big trip. Can't wait to see more of your itinerary.
