Spring, Maybe

So, it snowed on Tuesday. Just when we get to the point where we think spring is here, it decides to hide a bit longer.  

However, there is hope.

There is scilla, with their heads down because the sun is hiding. 

The forsythia is just waiting for some warm sunny days, but the yellow is starting.

I have purple crocus, although closed without sun. I am wondering where the other colours have gone. I had some purple striped ones and yellow ones here. Did they all convert to purple?

Or maybe the bunnies got them. 

The neighbour has some cute little irises. They are about 10 cm (4 inches) high.

I thought the fungus on the firewood was interesting. We really enjoy a fire on a damp afternoon. I think it will be awhile before we give the fires up.

Another pair of baby socks, these for the gift bin. It's good to have a spare pair, because babies seem to keep arriving. Yarn is Rasta from TurtlePurl. This is the third and last pair of baby socks from the leftovers of an adult pair of socks.

For a Canadian, this seems weirdly wrong. There is no French on the box. The cookies were a gift from a snowbird friend who brings them back from the US. Canadian Girl Guide cookies are sandwich cookies in vanilla and chocolate. The Girl Scout ones come in different flavours and the shortbread are my favourite.


  1. Spring is arriving in those flowers and buds, beautiful socks. It is always so good to have a spare gift or two in the cupboard.

  2. I can imagine how heartening those signs of spring must be after a long hard winter - they are so pretty! A spare sock gift is a useful idea. Now....correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't those cookies (which we would call biscuits, by the way, 'bikkies' for short) be quatrefoils, not trefoils?
