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?

Strawberries make me smile

I LOVE SPRING!  Sunshine, warm weather, birds singing, sunshine, blackflies, warm weather, flowers, sunshine, mosquitoes, strawberries, and warm weather!

I’ll be posting another giveaway soon, but for this morning I’m writing a quick post as I’ve been quite busy lately and have fallen behind.  I came across the following joke which I thought you might enjoy.

Farmer Evans was driving his John Deere tractor along the road with a trailer load of fertilizer. Tim a little boy of eight was playing in his yard when he saw the farmer and asked, ‘What’ve you got in your trailer?’

‘Manure,’ Farmer Evans replied.

‘What are you going to do with it?’ asked Tim.

‘Put it on my strawberries,’ answered the farmer.

Tim replied, ‘You ought to come and eat with us.”

🙂  My question to you today is what do you put on your strawberries?

SPRING has sprung!

  Today is officially

A week ago our daughter and our young grandson were across the road flying kites, since it’s a great place for that with the wide open fields on a breezy day.  Our little guy was having a great time.  He hardly had to move and the kite was lifting off in the updraft.

It’s a sign of the coming Spring. Remember those days? 🙂

Here today it is a glorious 20º Celcius , which is 68º Fahrenheit – and it actually got a little warmer than that where my house is located.  We are having an early Spring in Nova Scotia! Hopefully the temperatures will not change back until late Autumn as the buds are beginning to swell on trees and shrubs.

Our daughter, out west in Alberta, says it’s not spring there! At -17º C, (which is 54.6 F if I did the math correctly) all she had to say about it was …    brrr   😦   phhht! 

So —  to anyone, like my daughter, who is still dreaming of warmer weather … I hope it happens soon for you.

In the meantime —

I love Spring! It means that Summer is next and … I love Summer! 🙂

 HAPPY SPRING, everyone!
