Hints of green and that lovely scent in the air

After an appallingly long and bitter Winter, it seemed for ages that Spring had gone AWOL.



One semi-mild day would be followed by two drizzly, cold days.  Temperatures still aren't up to where they normally are at this time of year.

Nevertheless, things are starting to grow.  


And oh my, the air smelled so marvellous when I went walking at Shubie Park today.


The scent was intoxicating.

Can Spring really be here !

Has it reached your neck of the woods yet ?

  1. I think I met Spring passing through the neighborhood earlier today but by evening it was gone again. Like you say, we just get fleeting glimpses. At least it's still too cold for bugs. :o) I love the photos especially the fungus.

    1. Thanks Ms. Chickadeegirl, Spring seems to be very shy this year. You're right. No bug to speak of yet ... though I did see an ant in the front entry way ...

  2. I think a cool Spring was here for a day, and then she went astray, but the sun is shining now, so just maybe she's back to stay. Once again, beautiful pictures!

  3. You are too kind my dear ! (I'm saying it in my head and sound like those funny ground squirrels in that cartoon. "No YOU go first". "You are TOO kind" ) ;-)

  4. Yay for spring in Nova Scotia! I hope once it does arrive, good and proper, it hangs around for a while....well, isn't that the least it can do? ~~ Joanne. :)

    1. Joanne, our springs normally are very late and slow to arrive. The trade off is that autumn lingers and can be nice right into late November.

  5. Yes I think slowly but surely, spring is arriving. Blooms and temperatures are definitley "off" this year and I'm beginning to worry that this winter was very harsh on my beloved lilacs. I have very few buds and many dead looking branches this year. I know that lush spring smell you describe very well, and I love it too. Yesterday we actually had a touch of humidity and a thunderstorm!

    1. I love Lilacs too. I hope yours are OK. Mine are looking pretty lame. Thunderstorms. I love thunderstorms and miss them coz we rarely get them here on the coast.

  6. Yes, Sybil, I would say that spring hath come to our neck of the woods. Even though she was a little slow in appearing, we're trying not to hold that against her. IF she stays!
