First Week Of February Done Already !

 

WOW !  I cant believe how fast the  days are flying by . Papa is home for the weekend and off all next week as his company shuts down for a week for mid winter break so it will be nice to have him home for the week and it will help break up the winter for us both .

So far this winter has been quite pleasant , sure we have had cold damp cloudy days with the odd snow fall  but also lots of sunshine and warm temps with rain which had washed  away what snow we did have  but still a very easy pleasant winter to what it has been in the past or what it could of been .

                        Look what I spotted in my gardens  , my Daffodils are poking  above ground already  ! WOOHOO !

                                                       We had a dusting of snow over night and it looked pretty .

February 2016 (9 of 9)

But the sun came up and now there is no snow left , I find the land is now warm to so that helps with the melting of the snow .

Miggs and I went for our walk this morning all though the air is cold but it was nice with the sun shining  and I noticed all the ice from our Otter river has gone and the river is flowing fast and is deeper  this river  runs from way up north through our valley  and flows  out to lake Erie down through our port towns and the  marinas that are on the north shores of  lake  Erie , they say our  rivers and lakes never got a good freezing of ice this year as our lake Erie has been warm  and that it will affect  the lakes and rivers  for the summer months . Hope this lack of ice and warmer winter we have had  dont keep our  lake Erie beaches closed this summer  .

 

                      Any who ,  the sun is shining , the sky’s are blue and the snow is gone  from the ground and Papa is now home for the weekend and next week  , we have no plans but one never knows  !

                                                              Until next time  hope you all have good weekend !

Your daffodils are rising! Wow, that is amazing! I should check one of my flower beds that gets sun all day. I wouldn't be surprised to find the same. Happy weekend!

Hi Elaine, Daffodils already? In California we had them come up in March always toward the end of the month and I love them. Here it is late May or maybe June before they pop up. Enjoy your time with your man.
Hugs,

I hope the snow hasn't hurt your daffodils. I thought I saw something green poking out of one of my gardens too, but I haven't taken a closer look just yet. Enjoy your weekend,
Wendy

Even we are now almost snowless, except for the most part where it has been piled up. Never seen the like around here -- first time in 11 winters for us.

Good morning, pretty images. No signs of spring here yet!
Have a happy weekend!

This winter has definitely been a mild one. I drive by Georgian Bay every day for work and it's still open water. With the last two winters being terribly, terribly cold, everything was frozen by now. It's so nice that you can see your daffodils starting to grow, a nice taste of what is to come. Kelly

We are away for the Winter and ours has been plesant as well. Raining today but we are about to move on, starting another road trip. Yes time is going by fast, like your little push ups in the garden

Those daffodils may be a bit premature. Hope they survive any future winter sniw and cold.
