Woke up to brilliant sunshine this morning, no wind, all traces of yesterday's flurries gone and a temperature of -11C, brrrrrrrr!
Spring weather is definitely on the way within a few days. At least three days this week have forecast highs in the plus double digits and by tomorrow the overnight temperatures will no longer be below zero.
Three or four weeks from now we should be experiencing the same budding out of the trees and tulips that my parents in Calgary are seeing presently.
I can't wait for green leaves and budding flowers. Spring is Saskatchewan's most appealing season for me. Usually June is my favourite month for local scenery....the one month of the year generally devoid of the muddy, dull browns and blacks and greys that characterize the local landscape the rest of the year.
