Signs of Spring?

The sun is shining and the snow is melting! Can spring be far behind? That beautiful bright orb in the sky has been absent for months it seems. We have really missed it's brilliance.

I am always fascinated by the way the snow binds together and overhangs roof lines. The snow shaped by the wind, Seeming to defy gravity. It stays there for a long time when the weather is cold. One flake binding to the one beside it, holding on. Not too long after I took this picture, the snow let go and fell with a gentle 'whumph' to the ground below.

Another sign of spring, is the reappearance of the gardening beds from beneath the snow. It won't be long and we will be starting the lettuce and the peas. We have a little cold frame that we can attach.

The giant pile of firewood has shrunk considerably. We may burn off and on over the next 6-8 weeks, but it is no longer the constant burning of winter. It is good to see that we still have wood left. Also, if you could see the other side of the yard, you would see that once again we are collecting large logs to begin the process all over again. We thank God for His faithfulness in providing all our needs. DH has had steady work all winter. That has been a real blessing.
