Definitive Signs of Spring 

Nature – life, finds a way.  How true a statement that is indeed.  Despite the snow surrounding the tender shoots, daffodils are triumphantly sprouting towards the glorious spring sunshine, unabated and unabashed.  Another month and they’ll be fading away, allowing the peonies to step into their deserved late spring spotlight. 


Late Winter Beauty – March’s ‘Lion’ brings sunny skies

If you live in Central Ontario, you know that winter doesn’t really end with the arrival of March.  I remember a May 2-4 weekend that was spent looking out the window at a wicked winter storm ravaging newly emerged leaf buds and shocked daffodils. I’ve learned long ago to enjoy what winter brings, good and otherwise, for as long as she decides to hang around.

I cherish living in a wooded, rural locale that affords me the enjoyment of all 4 seasons: I wouldn’t trade it for any other clime!
