Things Are Springing Up Here


Early this morning  as I looked out our window there  was Mr Robin singing his good morning song on the wire across the road  , it is so nice to hear and see them again . I saw a Bald Eagle soaring high above the house today so they have returned to tree tops in the forest in the valley no doubt   and most of our spring birds are back, now I am just looking and listening out for our Song Sparrow now and to see when our Turkey Vulture's return as well  .

The sun is shining all though the winds  are cold today  , Miggs and I wondered the yard to have a look to see what is springing up if anything in the gardens since we had that week of  record breaking warm temps and lots of sunshine .

Things are beginning to spring up  now as we are in the last few days of February already . WOW ! time fly's doesn't it ?!

I will be keeping an eye on all the other things in my gardens springing up in hopes all made it through our mild and practically snowless winter , one never knows how dormant theses plants need to be over the winters or how much of a winter we need to have for them  to come back to life .

         I am looking forward to March 12th when we bump  up the clocks one hour ahead then the sun sets later in the evenings and eventually rises earlier to . Then.. well .. the ultimate and official arrival of Spring  March 20 th , 6:29 A.M. EDT   or March 21st . In Canada and the rest of the northern hemisphere, the first day of the spring season is the day of the year when the Sun crosses the celestial equator moving northward (on March 20th or 21st). This day is known as the Vernal Equinox !  either way WOOHOO ! I cant wait .

                                                                                  Until next time .

How lovely to see plants popping through. Ours aren't there quite yet. Looks like that might be a sedum coming through. We had a dusting of snow over night but it quickly melted away as the sun came up.

There is no doubt about it, spring is coming to your corner of the world! It's always exciting to see the new season arrive! I'm visiting here in Tennessee for a few days and daffodils are already passing peak bloom, and leaves will be appearing soon. It is happening too soon and it's because it has been a crazy and off winter for my friends in Tennessee too.

Nice to see the signs of spring! We'll be quite a bit behind here in Saskatchewan. Had a bit of snow and colder temps today but it is supposed to warm later this week.

I never realized there was such a difference between the Ontario tropics where you live and the Ontario Arctic where we live!

Miggs is such a patient photo subject!

There's still a lot of snow around here.
