High Park

Rob and I went walking in High Park on Family Day, and I found myself standing in the same spot I'd admired the Cherry Blossoms about 9 months ago.

I hadn't deliberately set out to stand in the same spot, but there was something familiar about the way the trees were lined along the path.  When I saw the plaque commemorating the cherry tree planting it dawned on me.... the miracle of Spring is just around the corner.

I am so excited.

I just spent about an hour hanging out in my Virtual Garden.  What fun to browse through seasons past.

Winter is lovely, fresh fallen snow and fluffy snowflakes can be spellbinding.  Walking in a park and seeing the footsteps of recent travelers is a treat.

But I am restless!  I want to see my crocuses popping their heads. 

This fat squirrel doesn't seem to mind a cold February day.  But that old guy carved into the tree, he's personifying how I'm feeling these days.  Enough of this cold weather already!
