Jim is that a cherry, flowering crab or something else? It looks like you're about 10 days ahead of us.

The ice went off our lake on March 22 then froze back over 2 days later. Highs this coming weekend are supposed to be below freezing. Jim ,your pictures give me something to look forward to.
You are about 6 weeks ahead of us so I hope you enjoy the nice Spring weather.

Spring? Hmm. Minus 5C this weekend in Guelph ON. Looks like I'm going to have to hunker down. I'm a wimp when it comes to cold weather. Bring on the heat.

If the highs stayed in the 60's or 70's all summer I would be one happy camper. I admire anyone who can tolerate temps in the 80's
By the end of summer I will be praying for snow.

Sun came out and temperature is bearable, so I tackled the trailer and green algae. Managed to do the roof and two sides before chill set in.
I know some think the green stuff is a crisis requiring nuclear weapons, but Simonize Wash 'n' Wax seems quite capable of dealing with it.

Is that some kind of pre-soak you did in the first photo? Looks great!

I love the spring clean and trailer pictures.

Spring has certainly sprung here on the wet coast.

I cleaned the trailer a week or so ago so this afternoon it was off to The White Rock Stroll for fish and chips on the patio at Moby Dicks.

Tomorrow we head to Derby Reach for a few days. So far retirement feels fine (even if Liz doesn't know how to take my pictures for uploading correctly. I'm slowly learning - I took the last three).
