-March, who? It can't be March!
Oh, but it is! It is! You wouldn't know it, though, if you lived here in Barrie and looked out your window this early morning. Your eyes would see snow piled high on your neighbours' front lawns, driveways fresh with fallen snow, cars encrusted in ice, and snowflakes falling ever so slowly, but surely.
|My backyard this morning|
It looks like a perfectly wintry day with no sign of Spring in sight. Police are advising motorists to stay off the roads unless completely necessary, as the highways are slippery with ice and continuous falling snow. School buses have been cancelled and numerous collisions have been reported.
Even though our first day of March is bringing with it more wintry weather, the end IS in sight. Afterall, it's the month of Spring and the promise of crocuses, daffodils and tulips! It's the start of maple syrup season and in just ten days it'll be Spring break! Children young and old, will be home from school for an entire week! My mother will be spending a few days with us and my girls are so excited! And of course, the weather will get milder, the snow will eventually melt and the yellow grass will give way to one of my favorite signs of Spring - the American robin!
Happy March and early Spring! I'm waiting, as patiently as I can. It'll get here...it always does! xo
Happy March, sweetie! I'm surfing through blogland, trying desperately to fend off a huge wave of jetlag that's threatening to shut my eyes (mustn't give in!!) So happy to find a new post from you to help me stay awake! Wow...that's some snow! Hope that you are all safe, cosy & warm in your nest...I have a feeling you will be. It's a gorgeous sunshiney early spring day here...purple & yellow crocuses are blooming all over my garden & the bees are zooming in & out of the hive, collecting the fresh new pollen! Wishing you a happy March & a thaw soon...& sending much love xoReplyDelete
Just picturing your purple and yellow crocuses make me happy! I'm glad it's more Spring-like where you are. Happy March to you too, sweetie! Love and hugs! xoxoDelete
Won't be long now before you'll spot a Robin or two. I am happy it's raining here today so it will hopefully invigorate the lawns and flowers and hurry Spring along.ReplyDelete
I bought a new bird feeder at the bird store and hope to get it hung on a new rod outside my kitchen window. Old one was way to low.
It will be very nice for you and the girls to spend time with your Mom during Spring Break. Have a great time! Hugs and Love xoxo
I love the thought of Spring and the return of the birds, insects, flowers and all the new life. Nice to get a new bird feeder! Thank you, Sandy! xoxoDelete
It started out Sunny here, but no cloudy and quite cold today but no snow on the ground....there's still remnants of the last snow....the dirty piles that just won't go away. I'm ready for Spring!!!! Stay warm sweetie..............Happy MARCH!!!ReplyDelete
Hi Joann, I'm glad your snow is almost all gone. We still have quite a lot to get rid of. I'm so ready for Spring! Happy March! xoxoDelete
Your backyard is so pretty, but I LOVED reading your description of spring. I think the prettiest springs I've ever experienced were when we lived in Maine and we really had to wait for it. There was nothing like that slow awakening: the birds coming back and the lilacs blooming. Mmm...ReplyDelete
And oh! Enjoy maple syrup season! :)
Thank you so much, Emily! I've always wanted to visit Maine!!Delete
We have a lilac tree in our backyard. I can't wait for it to bloom and to smell its fragrance! Happy March to you and your beautiful family! xoxo
Well everyone tempted the fates by saying how mild the winter was, how late the winter was. And now--one word: vengeance! Happy not yet but soon enough springtime.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Nancy! You're right...Winter arrived late and now it's here for the long haul! We've got to be patient. It'll get here, sooner or later! xoDelete
The snow is beautiful, but I can see why you're ready for a change! Oh my goodness, I envy your mom getting to spend spring break with you girls. I'm wishing you all a wonderful visit! xoxoReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Janie! I hope you, Emily and your grand dolls can visit each other very, very soon! That is my wish for you! xoxoReplyDelete
So chilly there! The snow is so pretty though. I live in south Florida so I have my AC on today. In fact, I don't think I have turned my heater on once this season :-( XoXoReplyDelete
Hello, Katie! I visited Orlando, Florida last year for the first time with my husband and my girls. We absolutely loved it. I can tell you that I've never turned off my heating - not once this season! And it'll be weeks before our AC is turned on. Enjoy the warmth. I am dreaming of it! xoxoDelete
Ps. I don't even know if it works. LOL!ReplyDelete
