The 2017 festive season has come and gone and we have moved into the new year and are back to the winter doldrums . We have had our annual January thaw and truth be told , on Saturday just past it felt more like March than January .
It was a much needed break in what seemed to be snow , snow and more snow. Daily snow blowing of paths and driveway had become de rigueur and I was not enjoying it much . It has been bitterly cold on top of all the snow, so a total melt and a bit of warmth was a relief. Of course, now , we will get our second dose of winter and it has started today . Streamers off Lake Huron are coating the ground with the white stuff again ….and so it goes.

Since writing the above , we have had a couple more thaws and snows again. Tomorrow it is calling for more snow …..SIGH!….., I am ready for the gardening season to begin. It can’t get here fast enough to suit me .
