When I saw all the snow we had, I certainly didn’t expect to see any colts foot mid March, like I did last year. All this rain that we got really speeded up the process, so they could be out any day now … even today, in a warm spot.
There are already signs … the potholes are the most palpable and most prevalent! As much as I love Saint John; the streets are atrocious!
This is the time of year, when one line from the song «The Rose» comes to mind: ‘just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snow, lies the seed that with the sun’s love, in the spring becomes the rose‘.
Two rivers meet here — Kennebecasis River, and the Saint John River. Yesterday we drove up to the ferry landing in Millidgeville. The ferry is still tied up on the other side, on Kingston peninsula, but there’s open water in the middle of the river so it won’t be long until we’ll be able to drive up on the peninsula, without having to go all the way up to Gondola Point or over to Grand Bay-Westfield.
Saint Patrick’s WEEK is in full swing here in Saint John now, with St. Patrick’s Day coming up on Thursday. There is a large group of people here that claims to be Irish descendents, so this is a big thing. There will be a lot of green stuff going around… More about that in another post.
If I write a post, ‘straight from the heart’, so to speak, and just publish it … that’s alright, but when I start to change things around … move pictures and so on, then I never seem to get finished. This little update on the progress of Spring took probably half an hour!
