spring ? maybe? maybe not!


spring is playing with us manitobans ... one day it is lovely ... folks are walking, riding, running - enjoying the warm rays ... the next day the ground is covered with that white stuff again!

today was of the lovely variety ...

however, if tomorrow happens to be blustery and cold - i made sure i checked out some good books from our town library ...

i DO hope April will come in like a lamb ... but if not - well it will just be winter's last hurrah!

have a GREAT weekend!

It's "officially" spring here, but actually we jumped from winter to summer, I think. Our temps have been in the mid 80's and we've had no rain yet this spring. I do hope April is a normal month.

spring in ohio is generally all over the place--never lasting any one way too long--except for rainy days on end.

everything's turning green and blooming here...i'm so keen to it this year...

hope you get a break from the white stuff!

The contrast with the vivid color and the white snow is beautiful!! But we all are longing for a bit of green, eh? Finally got a teeny bit of rain and noticed on the way to town yesterday that things are a bit greener...we are watering some and going to put weed and feed on the yard, so hopefully it will be pretty soon. Got a couple of flowering plants yesterday to put out, maybe tomorrow. My little daffidils are gone already...time for the next bunch.

"i do hope April will come in like a lamb...butif not - well it will just be winter's lat hurrah!"...I couldn't have said it better. In Michigan spring will tease us till about the second week in april - then hopefully its smooth sailing!

rita ... it is a dreary drizzly day here ... quite cool too ... i am hoping that SOON it will brighten up and truly be SPRING!!

tina ... i'm keen for springtime too ... warm springtime! we've had such a tease with only one lovely day a week!! soon? soon, the warmer temps will arrive here too!! hope hope!

elizabeth ... there is no hope for flowers here yet! maybe in another month ... then we still wait until the end of May before planting the little blooming plants ... so enjoy your greenery!

pat ... we usually have to wait until may for more springlike weather ... but? hope springs eternal, eh!

Sad to say for us Saija that in Ontario, April DID come in like a lamb but it was a precious cool lamb if you ask me...Love Terry

What can we say about our Manitoba weather. It almost feels as if winter is on the way back. Spring has to be just around the corner, lets hope so anyway.
