here we snow again!
It had all melted, days before spring…
But now look there at our lawn chairs,
where we’d been sitting (‘n knitting)
outside and everything!
So now spring has arrived,
Canadian Geese honking outside,
trees all are budding and we’re
celebrating inside, under another
fresh fallen cover of whiteness.
It’s been a fairly wacky year for weather, wouldn’t you say? We had one snowy day in September, followed by one of our mildest, spring-like winter’s ever. And now, spring is looking like winter. There were fresh flakes that fell on the first day of spring 2014, too… Oh and who can forget those spring snowbanks from 2013! Ah well, ‘guess we’ll weather the weather, whether we like it or not 😉 Summer is nice, but it’s just not the same as spelling “Spring” with Christmas garland in the snow!

Spring is in the air and finally on the calendar! This year, winter marked Thursday’s first full day of spring with a doozy of a blizzard… The day was windy, treacherous, and left us with an additional foot or so of fluffy snowflake from heaven. It was a rather timely storm, I’d say. Surely, this will also have been winter’s last blast!
Lucky for us, we are blessed to have a wonderful neighbour (see photo below) who has taken it upon himself to snowblow several neighbouring driveways whenever the weather is looking all white. His name is Randy, but we think of him as our “snow angel”. God bless Randy for caring to clear our driveway throughout the season—including twice on Thursday, then again Friday AM for a third time in two days ♥
These days our forecast is filled with bright sunshine! But what does one do with all of that snow?! You might mix it with fun reader feedback… Isn’t that so? (THX bekswhoknits & caforiginals)
Shamrocks and clover are symbolic of spring. And so before anyone could say, “Sweetie♥KNIT♥Shamrocks in the snow”, my needles were sprouting 4-leaf versions to add to my collection. Outside in the backyard, my nimble knitting fingers arranged them all just so. Then with my camera, I snapped a bunch of pics in the glistening, white, powdery snow 🙂
This photo op was also a great op to help smooth out my Gimp software learning-curve!
Yes, it was fun to create this snow-scaped collage of Sweetie♥KNIT♥Shamrocks. Look closely and you will find three lucky 4-leaf Sweetie♥KNIT♥Shamrocks “hidden” amidst the mostly 3-leaf versions. Does any of this inspire you to knit a meadow’s worth of Sweetie♥KNIT♥Shamrocks for an Easter and/or springtime scavenger hunt in your own backyard?
Wishing you a happy first week of spring! ♥ Jackie
