End of March

 Private Pond, no snow this time LAST year

Winter is still lingering on here north of Toronto but after a harsh winter it does feel and look a bit like spring. Night temperatures have been below freezing and a few days have risen above 0°C (32°F) but wind makes the days feel much cooler. In spite of this, much of the snow and ice has melted.

 Local creek, some snow and ice in full sun, yesterday

 Patches of snow in partially shaded areas

Patches of ice along the edges

I am linking to Sunlit Sunday HERE

 Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.

The landscape is changing! It's still too cold for me, though. And I really wish you'd keep your cold fronts up there where they belong! Sheesh. Another one his us last night and our temps dropped to 43 degrees! In Florida!

I just got in from a walk and even though it is +3˚C the wind is making it feel like -2˚C but it felt worse to me. I was looking for some flowers but no luck yet!

Beautiful to see spring coming aling your way. Our frozen river's becoming transparent slowly. On one side, water started moving.

These are beautiful sights.

We have pretty much warmed up here with some days in the mid 50sF but again wet and windy----but we are blooming out this way---well some stuff is.

One thing I love about this time of year is the longer daylight hours. As for snow, it's all gone now, at least for today!
