Spring is Late this Year

Just out of curiosity I went to Hawrelak Park to see if the geese have moved onto the pond. Well, they are there but they are on top of the ice –  this is the first year that I have seen ice on the pond so late in the season.

At least the snow is leaving the grassy areas and there is still the large puddle for them to swim in.We are expecting more snow but it probably won’t be staying. Sigh, we have had 7 months of snow. That’s too much even for us Canucks.

  4. The spring may be late, but you got some lovely photographs. I hope the winter will soon let go. Seven months seems like a long time…

  6. Spring is about as wonky as it gets, we had record breaking cold a few days ago and later this week it will be in the 70’s. All we can do… pardon the pun… is weather it out.
