It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Moving with the times

This was my front window last week:

But, given that the street has gone from this (19 days ago):

Through this (18 days ago):

To this (yesterday):

I thought it was time for a change. (Yes, this is early spring in Ottawa! It looks like mid-winter to some of you, I know, but here, it’s called Spring!)

So we took a pile of these:

And made a bunch of those. (Sorry about the glare. Hope you can make them out!):

And soon, there will be REAL ones in my garden! Happy Spring! (And yes, I know there is one lone snowflake in the window. This was not intentional, but when I discovered it there I decided to leave it. It seemed fitting. Because Lord only knows we’re not out of the woods yet.)

But, one last snowfall or not, Spring has indeed Sprung.

  1. I’m with you – I can’t believe how happy and more like myself I am this past week, since the sun came out and the snow has receded. Pumpkinpie is thrilled, too, I think, nad keeps telling me how much she loves me. Easier when I’m happier and doing more with her than when I’m a grumpy, hibernating winter bear!

  3. Isn’t it grand? To see sidewalks and grass again.

    To know that it won’t be long before tulips are blooming and gardens will be growing.

    And that walks outside will again be a pleasant journey instead of an arduous, and depressing, task.

    Happy Spring indeed!

    I am so happy Spring appears to have sprung. I need warm air and birds singing.
