Spring has actually sprung in our neck of the woods. Nothing more than a few minor patches of snow remain. And in the course of just two days, our lake went from a frozen grey-white mass to a gently-lapping, joyously-waving basin of brilliant blue beauty. Grass has begun turning perceptibly green and yesterday, a few clumps of pretty, purple crocus flowers appeared outside our kitchen door.
Bye-bye winter. Don't let the spring door hit you on your way out!
The photos below, go back to a bit earlier in the year - when we still had the white stuff. Before too long, I should have actual spring pictures to show you - just like the rest of North America but for now, these will have to do.
I semi-regularly do a blog post with quotes which I enjoy putting together. This one is a bit different.
All of the quotes are from books and/or movies but most of them have been somewhat fractured to fit the images. I hope you enjoy my mis-quotes. And hopefully the photos also.
