Spring has Arrived... Again!

Just a few days ago, our street looked like this but what with Victoria being Victoria...

We are pretty much back to normal with the green grass taking over once again!

There's still some areas with snow but we are doing our part by leaving pee-mail there to help it melt.

and we are seeing some weird snow circles...

And look at this!  The crocus has survived!  Amazing!

This is a fantastic omen because the annual Victoria Flower Count starts tomorrow.

We'll be able to count these flowers numerous times so that we can say we've seen 30,000 blooms (10,000 for each of us!)

So for the next week, I'll be sitting outside looking for flowers to count...

I wouldn't want to miss any that might pop up suddenly!
