You know it’s definitely spring when the pink blossoms flourish on the apple trees. It is a beautiful day here today. I wanted to share a small piece of it with you who have been so kind to visit my blog. I do love spring. The weather warms up, but not so hot as to make it uncomfortable. No need for air conditioners as yet. At least not here in Northern Alberta. It’s been an up and down week as far as temperatures go. Some parts of Canada have seen a late snow. In our neck of the woods we did see a few days of lower temps and rain, but no snow, thankfully. We needed the rain though. As I type this I can hear the red-winged blackbirds singing away around the pond in the green space behind the building. It’s lovely!
But I digress – apple blossoms, yes! In some areas of the city the streets are lined with crab apple trees which are beautiful in spring and feed the birds through the fall and winter. We were out and about and I captured a few photos – some in my son & daughter-in-law’s yard. I felt a little bit silly as I crept ninja-like down their driveway trying to steal up on birds visiting the feeders. Alas, there is a school yard right next to their house where children happened to be playing. Their noisy ruckus frightened the birds away so no matter how stealthy I tried to be the birds would fly off at the smallest sound. Lucky for me there was beauty to be found overhead in the apple trees….
