Spring is definitely on the way now!
We have seen many Blue Jays, Eagles, Hawks, Seagulls and yesterday we saw our first Pelican flying over the river. There is also more open water on the river so hopefully this means the ferries will soon be running again.
I also found the first grasshopper of the day. He was hopping in the grass and then he got caught up in some snow. After watching him in the snow for a bit, I ate him -- tasted like bacon!
Mom was quite happy to see the rhubarb and the irises pushing through the snow, but the garden is so wet that she actually got her boots stuck in there. I did not mind the mud at all!
Even though we have the river right through our backyard, we are high enough here that we will be ok. The river would have to rise 85 feet to get to our place. There is one part of our province that has issued ice jam warnings and flood warnings as the river is now thawing so quickly. The next 5-7 days will be the most crucial.
Wishing all my pals a wonderful day.
Yea! for spring!
YAY for Spring, I know you guys are so ready for it!!!
