Little Things

Small pleasures:

Colors I thought were *Fall* turn out to be *Spring*. Who knew?

Sand Hill Cranes have been flying North. The Canada Geese passed over about a month ago, amidst snowstorms (perhaps snow still says *Spring* to Canadians?).

The sun is now a more regular visitor. I have no illusions that the rains, and perhaps more snows, are behind us, but I am enjoying this respite. There is much budding and blossoming at lower elevations, but we are just beginning to see green here.

For you color police: see? There is green in my knitting. And Canadians? I'm sorry, you are just such an easy target (being so polite, and all).

Augh, no daffodils here yet. I hope they haven't drowned. I'm jealous.

We have daffs up, if by "up" you mean half an inch of leaf has bravely come up through the frozen ground.

There is almost 4 feet of snow on my poor frozen daffodils. It's cold work being Canadian, eh?

Not in MY part of Canada! There's more than daffodils blooming now, including early cherry blossoms, forsythia, flowering currant and even a whole field of dandelions. Oops. I'm not supposed to say or everyone will want to move here...

I love those early signs of spring. Even happier to see a touch of green in your knitting :-) It's rather dull here, with only an inch or two of leaves popping up - but it's my spring break, so it's all good!

Hello everyone, I just dropped by to say that it's still snowing here in Toronto today. Not to be a downer or anything. It's nice to see real flowers and pretty colours. Thank Sara. From a really polite Candaian.
