Spring is slowly arriving in Toronto, but winter is still trying to hang on.
This morning I got to scrape the frost off of the windows of the car before we left for church services. My friend’s oldest daughter is laughing at me since I haven’t had to do this for a very long time. It brought back a lot of memories of living in the Midwest though, so it was worth it.
By afternoon today the weather had warmed up and I spent time with my little friend having Fun with Chalk on the cement porch in front of the house. We also played in the yard and I took pictures of tulips which were starting to emerge.
There are definitely signs of spring around
The animals are starting to get more active. While eating a meal this weekend we saw this beautiful little gray squirrel on a fence post. I was able to get a quick picture before it scampered on down the fence line waving its bushy tail.
My friends were excited to see a gray squirrel as most of the squirrels in the area are Black Squirrels.
It was so warm that we also decided to take a walk to the park. On the way I spotted a robin in a tree. Robins are always one of the first signs of spring, so it is definitely starting to take hold.
However, I just looked at the forecast and it looks like there is a chance of snow about a week from now.
