Rumours of Spring are in the air.
… have been interesting.
And productive too.
One must look around while waiting impatiently for spring.
Sometimes you miss stuff.
The La Vase Portage Conservation Area is a neat place to visit. The trail passes beaver ponds while winding through mixed woodland and includes a nice stand of mature birch trees.
The snow is mostly gone, the ice is off the ponds.
Yesterday, this pond was waiting for the warmth of spring.
A week from now the greens will be well established and the activities of nature will have resumed.
For now, quiet and calm reign.
After a long career, Engine 503 awaits the next assignment.
We had a Great Performance on Halloween. What are we doing next?
The period of time in Spring between the disappearance of the snow and the arrival of the warmth.
Waiting for the explosion of growth that comes inevitably each year.
Everyone is impatient for Spring to arrive.
One year ago on West Peninsula Road this was the scene.
Looks very much the same this morning.
