Spring IS here, ya know!

I felt spring arriving last week. Even though the world looked both brown and white, even though the temperatures were more than a bit chilly, even though there was no sign of anything green emerging from the still frozen soil, I felt spring arrive in that deep, deep place inside me where secrets are shared.

And then we had snow this weekend; and our balmy 1 degree Celcius temperatures were replaced with minus 4 and minus 6 and even minus 12 this morning. 

And the Newfoundland naysayers all rushed to the forefront of my tiny life to say:

"Oh my God! I'm some friggin tired of winter, my dear!"
"Wah's all dat white stuff fallin' from da sky? I'm pye-zenned (poisoned) wit it all, Maid!" 

Well, I try not to let anyone rain on my parade. So, even though we had a surprise snow day Friday and the sound of snow ploughs and snow-blowers was heard throughout the land all day Saturday, I was not defeated. I opened up Instagram and FB, and I shared 
THE GOOD NEWS with the world.

It doesn't matter what they say.
I KNOW spring is here!

I though the same thing last week.
Alas it was not to be. Six inches of snow on Friday...:(

We are finally having an end to snow and it's raining here today instead. Rain is often synonomous with spring for us. But it helps to make the green things grow !

Our white is gone (for awhile -- no bets on it staying that way) but I wish it would warm up. It's almost Easter!
