Frankly, this week has not been replete with photo opportunities so I looking forward slightly and sharing this picture of sour cherry buds swelling up at about this date a couple of years ago.

It’s been a rather unpleasant winter – not so much the cold which is normal fore Montreal, but the variation in temperatures with occasional brief thaws followed by arctic freezes and then added freezing rain to add to the joy. Seeing the possibility of some breaking buds is a pleasant thought – I like winter, but enough is enough this year.

Maybe there will be snowdrops in a few week’s time … the clocks go forward next weekend and we are in “meteorological spring” even in the weather gods don’t agree quite yet..
