Did you remember to spring ahead?

It’s always a good sign of spring when we get to move our clocks ahead one hour to enjoy more daylight hours.

Did you remember to set yours ahead – either last night or this morning?




I know not everyone has to do this, and it can be a matter of heated discussion as many don’t see the need of it anymore, feeling it is a system that has outlived its usefulness. It was put into place 100 years ago in Germany during WWI, but they weren’t the first to do it.

You can read about it HERE.

From that article it would seem daylight saving time began here in Canada, but if you read all the way to the end you’ll see it was actually in effect in some way thousands of years before in the Roman empire.


How do YOU feel about Daylight Saving Time?

April showers bring mayflowers

Here it is the last full week of April and we haven’t had all that much rain — but the mayflowers are abundant near where I live. My husband came in one day with a large bouquet for me.








Can you smell their sweet fragrance?  🙂




These beautiful little flowers often can be found under patches of the last of winter’s snow and are one of the signs that warmer weather is taking hold.

Is there a certain flower you especially love seeing after winter?
