After Winter, Spring Eventually Shows Up... Or Not

Spring still seems elusive in these parts, though supposedly there will be a warm-up sometime this week. This is Central Park in the Glebe neighbourhood. At least around the edges of the park, snow is giving way.

  2. Your heading is so beautiful. The bridge is wonderful.
    I remember all the lovely tulip photos from last year.
    Yes I hope you have spring soon, we are heading into summer already. It is knocking on our door. Getting the garden ready and the shade cloth up !
    In fact I am turning on the pool heater about the second week in April.

    cheers, parsnip

  8. Wonderful winter scene at the beginning of spring.
    We seem to be back in autumn with stormy winds and a lot of rain.

  12. It's been quite a winter for those in the North, for sure. I couldn't believe there was more snow and ice over the weekend.

  13. @Cloudia: that's true. This morning we had snow again.

    @Parsnip: we shall see if spring shows up later this week.

    @Tomas: time will tell.

    @Peter: I do like this park.

    @Jen: so did I.

    @Luis: it seems very elusive as of yet, but the signs are still there.

    @Marianne: eventually, someday!

    @Beth: old man winter is taking an encore bow.

    @Tamago: I've got something taken this morning that points to spring.

    @Karl: Well, the Canal is starting to look that way.

    @Jane and Chris: and such a nice looking header too.

    @Jan: here it's snow and grey skies today.

    @Sharon: a very slow start.

    @Tex: it'll be awhile before we see those temps.

    @Pamela: thank you!

    @Linda: and more snow today!

  14. Ontario got their money's worth in winter this year.

  15. A lovely new header! That will put spring in your mind. I do wish, though, that you'd keep your Canadian cold fronts in Canada. We got another one last night and the temp was 39 F this morning. In Florida! That's illegal and immoral and lots of other things but this is probably a family blog and I'm not allowed to say them! :)

  18. It is all gone here except for a few bits of icy snow in deeply shaded areas.

  19. @Red: we had quite a winter.

    @Lowell: but winter and cold are good things!

    @MB: it'll take some time, but spring will bring flowers!

    @VP: it was about time to get spring in the header!

    @RedPat: it'll probably be a couple of weeks before we're at that stage.

  20. Great photo! I'm glad spring is finally coming your way.

  21. I'm sure it won't be long, at least I hope :)

  22. No snow on the rooftops!!!! That's a sign!!!

  23. It just got cold here again and they say it might snow tomorrow.

  24. We got down in the forties night before last. Have I said how ready for spring I am?

  25. The waiting is always the hardest.

  28. @Loire: it seems a very slow process this year.

    @Revrunner: that's an apt score.

    @Denise: at this point, who knows?

    @Ciel: that's true.

    @Halcyon: I'm not expecting a real warm up until the middle of April.

    @Cheryl: for your part of the continent, that's cold.

    @Marleen: a lot of gardeners are anxious.

    @Jennifer: I'm thinking not.

    @Geoff: thanks!

    @Gill: we'll see!

  29. Spring is on its way, but it is taking its time here and there, esp in your area and ours. I really, really like the color in your banner!

  30. Spring played a trick on you.

  31. Winter's certainly not going willingly. Those long shadows certainly don't say "spring" to me!

  32. I'm sure that you don't mind the snow hanging around William :)

  33. The spring is lazy this year in Ottawa ...

  34. Still snow? We've been in the 80s. Almost time to go to the beach!:) I've gone to the dark side, William.

  35. It's Tuesday 31 of March as I write this and it snowed all ding dong day.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'll take my desert spring day of 85 degrees anytime over suffering through something like your photograph.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It was 3°C here today and they are predicting 17°C for Thursday. With lots of rain to take all our snow away. Can't wait!!!

  38. In Florida, if we're lucky, we'll get about 2 weeks worth of Spring.
