February Spring

In spite of some dreary grey skies, February has been unseasonably warm, and we're seeing signs of spring everywhere. But this IS Manitoba, and we know it won't last...winter will have it's last hurrah....but we're trying not to think of that!

Looking for spring in February

 Earlier in the month, the full moon shone down on the deer as they made their evening trek across our neighbour's yard. With the warm weather we've had, they're enjoying the ground cedar that grows on our acreage. In the morning they make their way back to the Sprucewoods Wildlife Refuge.

Winters are long here,
and any signs of spring are welcome!

These guys are ready to welcome spring!

As much as Raven likes the snow, 
I think she's watching for spring too.

Well, hello there!

Have you seen spring?

It's just around the corner!

Looking forward to spring  too, I'm sure.

Yes, it's still winter.....

It's still winter, a lonely tree
But
Breathe, spring is on the way

Yes,spring will be here soon and these milder temperatures sure help to hasten that day.

I sure hope so, but I have a feeling we've got a little more winter to come.

It was incredibly mild here yesterday and again today. I would love to think we have seen the worst winter has to offer this year, but it isn't even March, so I figure there are at least a few storms still to come. Have a nice weekend.

Hi Jennifer, Thanks for stopping by. Sadly, I think we still have more winter coming too...but it's nice to dream!
