Here are some pictures I took last Tuesday. A very nice day, still with a chill, but nice. Lindsay, Sadie and I took a walk around the yard, and went down to the orchard, where Dawn was busy pruning.

That was Tuesday. Then came Thursday....... Remember, this is Nova Scotia.
My favourite shot from den window
Of course, the snow didn't last. The last two days have been sunny and warm and tomorrow is supposed to be the same. Yesterday I spied these.....
........a promise of spring, but also a caution not to get my hopes up. These beauties will poke their little heads up through snow. I choose to hope for spring to come gradually, not strangely, as in the last few days. Too much warmth is not good for the apple trees. They will be fooled into swelling the buds, and then, BANG!!! a freeze. Not good. Oh that winter would be winter, spring be spring and summer be summer, and not all mixed up in a ten day period.
