First Day of Spring

Did you wake up to this today on the first day of Spring? The past week has been so warm and sunny with temperatures we could call balmy.  Everyone was out and about and I heard from other gardeners that they were compelled to go out and do a little something in the yard.   It was a perfect week for those with children off school for March break.    If you did not get away to warmer climates I think you had as good temperatures as those who did.   But, this morning back to reality that it is still March in southern Ontario and we have to get over the hump of the last of winter snow before we see the benefits of April rain.   Happy First Day of Spring to you all.   I am participating in Straight out of the Camera meme at    Take a picture and do no editing beyond a crop.

I know this could be my reality too Valerie... any day! Just now however it is sunny and warm! Happy Spring!

Looks a lot like my yard this morning! At least this won't last long, Valerie!

Wonderful capture of your "Spring". I've heard of several areas that received snow, on Friday or Saturday.

Hope it gets warmer! I do not want to see snow any time soon!

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
