Spring

We took a walk this morning trying to take advantage of what we hoped would be a beautiful day. There is  a reservoir fairly central in Calgary that we walk around several times a year, and I think it might be about 17km  or almost 12 miles to walk the loop. It started out pretty chilly but was just a beautiful morning with the sun shining and the feel of spring in the air. There is snow in the pictures as much of the area is shaded, but the forecast for this week is warmer, so likely it will all be melted in a few days.


                                  Tony has spring fever and had to wear shorts.

                    There is still a lot of snow yet to melt on those mountains in the distance.




It took us about 2.5 hours to do the loop and then we had some lunch and went to check in with Tony's Mom, and see how she is doing. She is in an assisted living facility and is 89. She took a bad fall earlier in the week and is still a bit shaken.

I am still working on Stella Blue- several hundred flying geese to make stars...lots of trimming. It is starting to come together as I have made 10 or so stars, so more on that next week.

Have a wonderful week.

Gorgeous pictures. You will find my husband in shorts year round!...of course, our temps don't dip as low as yours though. Calgary is one of my favorite cities on this planet...lucky you.
