Which Way Photo Challenge

Yesterday on our walk along the Waterfront Trail in Hamilton, my camera was working overtime. It was such a lovely day.

Awakening the Plants

….thanks to WordPress for this week’s WPC ‘awakening’

Here in the northern hemisphere spring arrived a couple of weeks ago but the awakening of new growth has been slow due to the unusually cold weather. Today in Hamilton my granddaughter and I played in the backyard and even though the sun wasn’t out it was mild enough to be outside without hats, scarves and mittens. Miss Winnie loved playing with the puddles of water and digging in the mud and checking out the plants to see if any flowers were forthcoming.

Of course there are a few patches of green sprouts emerging in parts of the garden and if I got close enough I was able to see the beginnings of buds on some of the shrubs. On our walk we also came across a small flock of pigeons in a bird bath…..something they haven’t been able to do in awhile.

More Signs that Spring is Here

….even though it’s still March and spring is officially here I say this with some trepidation

The sun is high in the sky, people are catching some rays on park benches, a few brave souls are playing tennis and we’ve started cooking outdoors again.P1050952
