it's official

It's official that this is the latest spring in 141 years - no wonder I don't remember another year like this!

Yesterday we took a trip to the cottage and it was delightful.  The snow is still knee deep in places and since the snowbanks wouldn't hold our weight (even Little Dog was sinking) we shovelled our way in - good thing we took a snow shovel with us.  The sun was shining and there was no wind so we were quite comfy in just our sweaters .... what a treat to take the winter jackets off.  Some chickadees, Canada geese, and magpies were there to greet us.

This is an ice shelf (on the left) on the Mossey River, which 
is on the way to the cottage. 

 This is looking up the river - there's a bit of water
on the middle left.


This is looking north on the cottage road.

Beautiful photos of beautiful scenery. Glad you were toasty warm in your cottage. Enjoy the break.

Such beautiful pictures Kate! Glad you were able to be out and about even if you did have a bit of snow shoveling to do. It has been very warm here in the southern states, but cooled off today from a front coming through.

You've had a long winter and we've had an endless summer! Finally finishing just now.

Beautiful photos, but... It is April 20th!! I sure hope you get some snow-melting warmth soon, Kate!

Wonderful to get to the cottage in this weather! There was much snow around here this weekend too. I agree with Nia, maybe the weather will go right into hot weather!! :)
