It Ain't Over Till It's Over

Just a sweet reminder to my many bloggy friends in warmer climates ...
 

 ... while you're all marveling at the first spring flowers in your gardens ...


 ... and tentatively cracking open your windows for a bit of fresh spring air ...
 
 
... while you check out your green lawns pondering on when it'll need its first cut ...
 
 
... and while you listen to the birds singing their spring songs to find their true loves ...
 
 
... while you watch the warm spring sun rising in the morning over budding trees ...
  
 
... please remember those of us who are still clearing heavy snow from our walkways and driveways ...
 
 
... and please pick a spring flower while thinking of those of us still locked in Winter's harsh grip ...
 
 
Here's to Spring ... wherever she may be hiding.

 
 Wendy

    1. I think it's bringing us all down a bit now ... physically and mentally. Maybe some spring bulbs from the store would help indoors.

  3. Spring has arrived here in the northwest. I think you should make some hot chocolate and enjoy the beauty! Your yard is gorgeous!

    1. I'm tired of hot chocolate ... it just reminds me of snow and cold. Thank you for your kind comments about my yard, it was fairly spectacular (all slopped off the trees now at lunchtime)

    1. I raise my shovel in salute to you Sandra ... we had the same. I just feel I can't lift even one more snowflake I'm that tired.

    1. It's time to bid it all goodbye, don't you think? Of all snowfalls, I like spring snowfalls the least ... so wet. I'm glad you like the photos :)

    1. It seems slow coming this year ... sun "in the Moorlands" sounds picturesque!! We've got brilliant sunshine & brisk wind today too. Have a great weekend Thea :)

  10. Beautiful photos. Spring will arrive when she's meant to :-)
    Over here it's supposed to be Autumn today. It doesn't feel like it - and truth be told I don't want it to. It is my favourite season, but I'd like summer to stay a bit longer, and for some more rain to come so that our paddocks make it through the dry :-)

    Have a lovely weekend,
    Sarah x

  11. I love the fall too (no bugs!), but I know what you mean about saying goodbye to summer. Being a farmer you always have to keep that "weather eye". I hope you get through the dry season unscathed :)

  12. I am hoping that this will be the last storm for the season :) getting to work;specially in the mornings has not been fun. Have a great weekend Wendy !

    1. I no longer have to commute (work from home), but I do know the pain of winter commutes, both driving (I used to drive between rural Burlington & Oakville) and then taking the train into Toronto for many years. Surprisingly, the train commutes were some of the worst!! But being at home ... I'm the one that gets to shovel the drive :P I hope you have a great weekend too Gaia.

  13. Haha! Oh so true. This is what it looks like at my house, too. I am aching for spring.
