Today marks the seventh day of my self-imposed goal to post three times within a handful of days. Having fewer than seven fingers on each of my hands might suggest that I’ve missed the mark by a couple of days. But oh well, we will simply amend the time allotment (expanding it to include both hands) and write a belated Earth Day post ;)
This third post is different from my original plan, yet better than what I’d hoped to hope for. Remember all the fresh snow from Good Friday? Well spring finally got sprung and the season turned a corner the very next day! There was a sudden surge of warm weather, then “poof” like magic… all that snow was melted away by Saturday!!! Truly, after five solid months under the snow, the landscape is brown and bare. Yet just seeing the bare earth again is a sight for sore eyes! And it sure was good to pull summer shorts from hibernation—baring our pasty Canuck legs to 20ºC (nearly 70ºF) sunshine for the first time in over half a year! :) ❤
Here now are a few earthy spring pics from our neighbourhood canal/pond walking path. It was a great day to take the camera for a fresh-melted photo shoot, featuring a few of my favourite colourfully fibrous hand-knit “toy” prop friends. Expressions of delighted puzzlement from neighbours who were also out for a walk? … priceless!
Hope your Earth Day was fun too ❤ Jackie
