So, it’s been winter in Kingston for about a hundred years. A few weeks ago, we had a teasing preview of spring followed by an interlude with some ice pellets that I’d rather not discuss. But now, at long last, spring is here.
We are now so confident of spring’s reality that we cleaned out the shed, changed over our winter tires, and tidied our compost pile to really honour the season. And last week, this absolutely magical fairy garden appeared at my daughter’s preschool.
Isn’t it amazing? It was made by a ridiculously talented parent.
Other spring-like things in our lives…
The appearance of scylla (amongst the goutweed. The Battle Against the Goutweed continues.)
We started some seeds about a week ago, and on Sunday morning woke up to this sign on our bedroom door:
It’s true, too. Just look at them. Beans are infamous troublemakers.
Even the tomato sprouts look cheeky.
And that’s how my week went. How about yours? How are you enjoying the season?
P. S. I scheduled this blog post, logged into Twitter and found another sign of spring!
Park staff are reporting that Moose watching season has arrived! Many sightings along Highway 60 this morning. pic.twitter.com/tBlcZhD9H8
