It's coming...

This afternoon, Shadow pup and I took an hour's walk, looking for signs of Spring. We found plenty!


The tulips beside the house are starting to make their appearance...


the river is opening up...


sap is flowing down this tree where a porcupine 
made a meal of bark...


students at the Bennett Centre were having classes outdoors. Cool bison!


A cyclist whizzed down the hill...


avoiding the winter grit on the road's edges...


Nobody to be found on toboggan or ski hills...


good thing, too -- the T-bar is stock still, 
and look at that mud!


Snowbanks are pretty much missing from the park...


and there's not much left for puddles, either.


A motorcyclist was running his machine 
around and around the block, listening carefully to it...


and there were little patches of green grass here and there...


We have happy tomato plants in our +30 degree greenhouse.


Yesterday I found some pussy willows...


and both days, I had a little dog 
who definitely needed a bath when we got home.
(It's a daily occurrence at present.)

Of course, it could snow tomorrow and we'll be back at square one,
but the strength of the sun says that winter can't last much longer...

Happy almost Spring!
