Photos by Hamlin Grange
We’ve had all kinds of weather in the last four days: wind, rain, snow, freezin’ rain. Then more snow and freezin’ rain and wind again.
Hamlin froze his tush off to get these photos today!
We hear the birds singing loudly — though methinks it sounds more like complaining today. Who can blame them?
This wall must be warm, because a dove has taken refuge on the climbing ivy branches just outside our window. We’re so sorry for him/her that we almost opened the window and said “Come on in!”
Our snowdrops are encased in ice.
The frog, we imagine, is playing a requiem for Spring, because it sure feels like Spring has died and Winter is resurrected.
The poor daffodil buds, about to bloom, have frozen too.
In our eagerness for Spring, we put out the warm-weather table and chairs days ago.
The laugh’s on us for forgetting it’s April in Canada. They don’t call our country The Frozen North for nothin’.
