At Last Spring's First Appearance ..

Hello my dear friends,

Spring is finally making it's first appearance here in Ontario.

You all know that I have a love for snow but I also love Spring so much when everything comes back to life again in our garden after the dark and cold months of Winter and it is so exciting to watch it happening.

Every day now the snow is melting ...

... a little more.

Bit ...

... by bit ... 

... very slowly ...

... it is disappearing. 

The sun is shining more often and soon flowers will be blooming and bushes and trees will be growing their first leaves the year and it will be such a beautiful sight.

The little furry critters are happy and ...

... so are the feathered ones that are now returning home like this little mourning dove.

We also had a rare visitor to our backyard again.  

At first I couldn't make out what it was because it was quite high up in between all the twig of our willow tree ...

... but then I did ... it was a stunning hawk.

Unfortunately my photographs didn't turn out too well because of the distance I had to take them from so I wouldn't scare this beautiful bird away.

One thing that wasn't so nice was that it seems that every year at the this time, when Winter comes to an end and Spring arrives we all get ill. Most of us have been under the weather this entire March break unfortunately but thankfully we are feeling slowly better.

 I have been trying to work on a few new pieces but so far I haven't finished anything just yet but do stop by again  maybe then I will have something new to share.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. He's a smallish Coopers Hawk ---- they are beautiful and powerful birds.

  2. I am happy for you, that spring seems to come to Canada too now.
    Thank you for those lovely pictures!

    Hugs Ines♥

  3. Happy Spring!

    We had a willow tree in our yard - roots aren't the best for plumbing but it sure was a graceful tree. Enjoy yours!


  4. I love all your pictures, soon very soon spring will appear with green leaves and flowers.

    Happy Spring

  5. I enjoyed watching your little statue surface out of the snow - I'm sure he's happy to finally be able to breathe!
