Winter Running Off

I was walking in a hilly park this afternoon, an unusually warm and blustery day, and noted with satisfaction that meltwater is running through the gullies from the hilltops to the river.  While March and April are the snowiest months in Calgary, we can now start to feel confident that we will survive another winter!

Last Thursday, I attended a Master Gardener class with my sister in Texas.  Someone announced that the Farmers’ Almanac predicted that that night would be the last chance of frost in their area.  We’ll need another two and a half months or so here…!

So, for those who are impatient with the slow demise of winter, here are some images of spring in my sister’s garden in Texas.
