Ahhh spring. This year we had a March treat of 3 days in the mid 20s (centigrade). The snow disappeared and you can see through the ice on the lakes and patches of clear water on areas that had been iced over. Kids were out in their shorts and the teens were out sunning themselves and soaking up the rays. What a treat to have the summer-like weather even though we knew it wouldn’t last.
The robins have arrived and some hardy plants have started raising their heads – hope they don’t get fooled and frozen at the early stage.
Of course 2 days later the temperature is -4 Degrees C. Quite a feat to know what to wear but layers are the answer.
Looking forward to enjoying the buds coming out on the trees, the crocuses and spring flowers arriving — and yes the odd snow flurries and blustery days thrown in there. This IS Nova Scotia after all where the weather is a great topic of conversation and can change from one minute to the next.
