I’m definitely in a Spring mood. We had some great weather mid-week, with a promising forecast ahead. I love this time of year, as new plants start to push up and trees start to fill in with leaves.

With the melting snow and warming temperatures, we’ve started thinking about our vegetable garden. After a late start and tough soil conditions last year, we got a head start this year.
We’ll start the seeds indoors between now and late May, with lots of time for them to mature before transplanting outside. I’m sure there will be many vegetable pictures in the future 🙂

I don’t like to throw out clothing that can still be worn, even when it’s getting a bit threadbare. I have a shirts and a pair of cargo pants with holes that serve as my painting clothes.
I’ve had these slippers for at least 15 years, and they’ve taken a pretty good beating. I even stepped in a tray of primer with one of them, so I painted the bottom of the other to even it out. That’s probably why they’ve lasted so long.

I’ve always enjoyed the different textures of tree bark. Okay, that sounds weird, but it’s true! Being able to identify a tree species based on its bark has always been an interest of mine.
Black Cherry is one of the more common tree species in the forest where we regularly walk. They also make for great firewood if you are camping and can find a fallen one.

The Laurel Creek Conservation Area is starting to feel a bit more Spring-like, with clearer trails and more birds. I keep looking for owls as I walk the trails, but so far I’ve only seen one and I didn’t have my camera.
This Cardinal and Sparrow were hanging around where someone had dumped some bird seed. This is a popular spot for birds in the winter.

We enjoyed a walk on a less-travelled trail. This spot has great sun exposure and very little wind.
There’s a different kind of light to the sunlight these days; it feels and looks warmer.

We aren’t the only ones that enjoy a bit of sunlight. There are only a few spots where the sun hits the floor in the afternoon. Leave it to Lilo to find one and stitch out.
Lilo’s favourite things are sunlight, mud puddles, and walks in the forests.

I couldn’t do a week without a monochrome shot. This particular view is in the Laurel Creek Conservation Area on the yellow trail, which is not marked on the map.
This is one of the first areas to be completely clear of snow. Soon this will be lush with green.
