March 2010

What a tremendous arrival of spring!  Seventy-seven degrees (a new record).

Although we have no greenery to speak of, the sunshine was very encouraging, and inspiring enough for us to show Dylan the joys of picnicing.

The river was running fast after the addition of recent rain and snow melt.  And the cyclists were out in full force… their bright attire making up for the lack of spring flowers.

Dylan’s nose was working overtime, trying to capture every nuance in the fresh spring air.

After a snow-filled winter, we were treated to a gorgeous day and the opportunity to have our first picnic of the year.

With Mark & Catherine visiting, we headed to St. Peter’s Village and enjoyed our first picnic of the season… and decade… along side the French Creek.

French bread, 4 cheeses, salami, olives, apples,  wine and music.  A delightful picnic and a great start to the year.  So glad we got to share it with our friends!

After a record breaking winter, in terms of snow-fall, we are anxious for spring.  Several days of rain has finally cleared the landscape of the mounds of white snow.

Today, I watched a movie that I made of our summer garden. I could feel the warmth, and smell the fragrance.

Dylan has never seen summer at our place, and we can hardly wait to see him romping in the grass!
