We’ve been flirting with spring for months now, watching the grass turn green and the plants blossom first in Alabama, Mississippi, then Tennessee as we work our way north. We arrived in Grimsby Ontario on Wednesday and there is no question, once again, we are ahead of spring. It’s coming, there is no question of that, but Mother nature is waking slowly after what was obviously a brutal winter.
The trees are starting to bud, the grass is beginning to green up from under the left over winter muck but the dominant colors are still beige and brown. There is no green or white or pink or lavender, the colors we have enjoyed so often this year. But the skies are blue, the winds are out of the south and the sun is warm, we will certainly get one more spring.
We are back home for the summer and wondering why the list of things to do gets longer every year as we transition into our summer life. Add to that, we need to catch up with our family, friends and neighbors. these are exciting and happy times.
