At Last ~ Spring Is Here ..

Hello my dear friends,

at last Old Man Winter was leaving and making way for Spring.

Slowly but surely the snow and ice had stared to melt ...

... the frosty mornings became less ...
... icy puddles unfroze.
Some critters returned and some had never left ...

 (This little squirrel was ready to come into the kitchen window) 

... of the furry kind ...


... and of the feathered kind, 

... some I had never seen here before.

This beautiful little guy took rest in our blue spruce to soak up the sunshine one day and ...
... this large guy, which turned out to be a wild turkey, took rest 60 feet up in our willow tree a few mornings ago! 

Plants are starting to grow and ...

... Nature is awakening and starting to bloom, announcing to every one that Spring was here was again! ... But then again you never know, after all I do live in Canada.

I wrote this post yesterday ...

... and this it looked like outside this morning when I woke up ... I did say you never know!
I wish you all a Happy Spring when ever that might happen!
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. We in the Detroit MI area also woke up to snow this morning, but hopefully by tomorrow Spring will be back.

  2. Unbelievable that the snow came back.
    We have had some days like summer ( 23°C) in march here in Germany, but for some parts of Germany snow is predicted for next days. In april you never know.
    Your pictures are great! It's like beeing on safari with you :-).

    Warm wishes

  3. Beautiful photos of nature, Karen! Yes, our weather is so unpredictable, isn't it? But I think it makes us appreciate the sunshine all the more.
    Thank you for stopping by. It feels great to be back.

  4. April is always a surprise here.....it is snowing right now.....yesterday was 82 out there!!! I'm across the lake from you.........

  5. Great photos - thanks for sharing. Winter is back here in northern Wisconsin - 12+ inches of snow in the last 24 hours! Going to be 50 on Sunday, though - thanks you Easter bunny!
