I've always been convinced that spring doesn't actually arrive here until Easter weekend. It doesn't actually matter when that is. It was truly that way this year.
Last Wednesday, it was -2C and we had an ice storm.
This was the bird feeder, by mid morning.
This was our backyard, midafternoon. The pine tree was being pruned by the storm, and branches were every where.
The next day, we started to hear chain saws, many were still without power, and it was melting, making quite a mess.
During the storm, I finished some baby socks, commissioned by a friend for an upcoming baby shower.
Easter morning, it was warm (+8C) and sunny. The bunny left cupcakes for our extended family breakfast.
My grandson was invited to a birthday party for a couple of his classmates. The request was for Minecraft gifts. I had some Minecraft fabric, so I used it to make these.
Some stray police cars made the lining.
They have been filled with other goodies and are off to the party this afternoon.
Meanwhile, spring was showing off.
From ice to flowers in less than a week. Yesterday, we set a record for April 13, with a high of 26.8C. From winter to summer just like that,
Emme was enjoying the breezes and the birds in her "Catio" yesterday.
She says if you are looking for her, she will be enjoying the sunshine.
