Is it Spring yet?

Although it's late April, we only started to see signs of Spring
on the weekend, when we returned to our old midtown neighbourhood for a quick, late lunch.


Hazelton Lanes, a nearby shopping mall, is undergoing a massive reconstruction, and the café we wanted to go to was gone. But it was close to 4 pm and we were starving.


We had a nutritious, heart-healthy lunch--okay, chocolate bars and Diet Pepsi-- and I took a few photos of the neighbourhood to remind myself that, yes, Spring will come soon. Even to the suburbs.

  2. We got ours early, Barb. It was here and gone before I could enjoy it. My roses started to bloom two months ahead of schedule. Now they're covered in black spot and aphids. Nature is such a saucy minx!

    1. Your poor roses! Tulips can take weathery punishment, but not roses.

      After such a long, cold winter, the least Nature could do is give us an extraordinary Spring. "Saucy minx," indeed!

  3. Thunderstorms, baseball-size hail, tornadoes....Spring has hit Texas for sure. (And everything is green)

    1. Wow, I shouldn't complain! Although we did get a bit of hail last week, it wasn't that big.

    1. Lily Faye, you've been going to the beach lately, so you must be in the south somewhere. I love air conditioning, too. My long fur makes me too warm, sometimes. I also like to like in front of a fan.

    2. Arrrgh, I meant to type "like to lie" not "like to like." Clumsy paws!
