I hear that today is the first day of spring!
I took my camera with me for my walk and this is what I saw:
The skies are blue and it's -18 deg. Celsius with a windchill.
It feels like -30 when the wind hits you!
Despite the temperature, it's a beautiful day.
"Hope Springs Eternal", so you've been telling me.
It's true, and thank you dear friends for the encouragement.
Some of the older homes along the river.
I enjoy walking in the morning time, there's not a lot of traffic and very few people around.
I live in a beautiful city where the weather is simply not predictable.
Last year at this time the temp was +21 deg. Celsius.
Next year could very easily be like that instead of cold like this year.
Emily Dickinson penned these words:
“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -
And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -
I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.
"HOPE" is still singing in the lilac bushes behind my house.
These photos are from around my little house.
I wanted you to see our snow banks.
It's hard to clean up the snow now, because I have to throw it so high.
Six inches of snow fell on Sunday and Monday.
So far this year we've had a snow fall of more than FIVE FEET.
So, here's to spring and here's to the hope that tomorrow will be warmer and greener.
Have a wonderful day, my friends and thank you for coming by!
