Fling! Spring

Seriously.....none of us are amused over the Delayed Spring this year.
Did you know that in just over 2 months...it's SUMMER?!


You want to see what my spring looks like as of today?

(And for the record...I am NOT complaining.
I just would like to Fling Spring around a little....
shake it up.

Wake it up!)



Oh Look! 
Spring Breakup in my Driveway.

Ooooh. 
Is that a rock?!

No Way! There's mud!!
(See? On the left there?)

Awww.....poor suckers.
(And they flew all that Way!!!!)

Blooms!
Real live(?) Blooms!!
~~~~

Oh COME ON Spring.
SPRING already!


(Dear Allison....PLEASE continue on with your lovely BBQ and spring posts. 
They DO make me smile. And I am not jealous. In the least;)

That darn snow.. we had 2 inches of it last night after a very mild day. It was up in the 60s again today.. that's so strange. Love the photos though.. you still capture the beauty.

Patience is a virtue my friend! lol I love the photo of your horse, an up close and personal look. Spring is a comin', the city is dirty but most of the slush is off the roads now... maybe I can wash my car again and it'll stay clean for more than the drive home.

Great shots and yup, we're well on our way into spring. I just hope that summer doesn't take it's sweet time.

heather yalin said...

you're so funny! love the documentation of your non spring. hope it comes soon!

Rick said...

Ha ha, Dawn ! This is the time when the saying "patience is a virtue" starts to wear a little thin !

By the way, I'm sure you know the definition of a Canadian spring - it's the 15 minutes between winter and summer !

This is really a great series. I love that pine cone capture. Thanks for sharing.

Allison said...

As I read through this post I was feeling an inner pity... "grass - grass - grass your way!". And then I saw your little post script. :) There is plenty of grass and warm sun on my blog for you today, so feel free to wrap your arms around it and take home as much as you want! I wish I could share! :D

Peter said...

It will be really great when it arrives ... I don't like to admit it but I am looking forward to some cooler weather.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

How's your training going?

Love the V of birds.

It's going to come, Dawn. It has to!

Judy said...

Oh Dawn, It's coming I promise you. It's just taking a bit longer. I'm seeing people wearing capri's and sandals around town, and it's not really that warm out...It's just they're so desperate for spring to be here, they'll wear anything now that the temps are above 40°.

texwisgirl said...

spring blooms. love it! poor girl!

Farmchick said...

Spring is not looking very cooperative there!

Clint said...

Well, you got meltin' snow and rushin' waters and flyin' geese and bloomin' shrubs! Springtime is HERE!

Out on the prairie said...

I am still laughing, sorry it is taking so long. You are welcome to come and enjoy a little of mine. I will post a few flowers for you. I have onions and potatoes in already.

Corinna said...

brrr...you can move to texas. we only have ice every few years and then for only about 24 hours. sending some of my spring fever your way!

Leah J. Utas said...

Spring will get here in its own good time. Or so I tell myself. Love the water pics.

Deb said...

I'm sorry Dawn...I bet you wish you were traveling with your Mom right now...wish I could send you some spring...

Stuff could always be worse said...

I understand some of your pain :) I am so happy to see a bit of spring here...yours will come

Julie said...

I LOVE the horse picture! When I got sidetracked by horses on my ride the other day, I just wanted to stay and pet them and keep carrying on my Julie to Horse conversation all day long. They are just so amazing to me!

Nancy said...

Well, you do live in Alberta! ;)

And, your horse needs his/her bangs cut. I'm just sayin'...

Trisha said...

I'm "thinking" warm for you & sending it your way :) Such a sweet pic of your horse! Give 'em and apple from me :)

sage said...

Beautiful horse. Is that bare ground I see? Spring can't be far off for you!

Hope said...

great photo's! especially of the geese!

enjoyed your post very much!

Farm Girl said...

I keep hoping everyday when I visit there is going to be some spring. I am glad that you can see some signs.
Hang on it will be here. :) You do make me laugh.

Tim said...

That is a beautiful horse. I all ready for Spring, too.

Lynette said...

Now, can you believe that you were actually happy when the first snow fell last year?

magda said...

considerthelillies said...

oh, I hope it comes soon for you! When I was a child and lived in Pennsylvania, it would still be quite cold in May! Hopefully it will be the most gorgeous spring for you!

becky said...

I have friends in Colorado & Maine that are anxious for spring, too! For me, it has come... though there is still snow to play in in our local mountains just 15 miles up the road. The best of both worlds, I suppose.
Your curious horse id cute!
:)

Maelgi said...

A pleasure to spend for your blogs astonishes of nature, very good your look, thousand graces. Embraces from the south of the American continent ..?

Buttons said...

Dawn spring yeah. It is coming slow and sure it is still cool here but no snow. Lots of water but I don't mind. Great photos. B

Kerri said...

Yesterday we were at 78 degrees - today we had sleet! Mother Nature is playing tricks on us :)
LOVELY captures - I especially LOVE the HORSE!!

bon bon said...

your horse looks like he'd be content in any season...

Saz said...

Haha, I really hope Spring comes your way soon! You deserve it!

Love the horse photo, so gorgeous. && I love the geese formation photo, amazing. Your photo's are brilliant!

Tammy said...

We had snow again this morning too. The weather man is calling for 70 degrees by Sunday, though, even if short lived. Hold on...there is hope :)

Tracy said...

cool photos...love the one of the creek and the coating of ice; great job Dawn!

rosaria said...

It's coming, I can feel the warmer days, the brighter skies. Patience and hope go together.

Fit With Flash said...

I'm still sending Spring juju your way... it's just taking a little longer than expected... i'll see what i can do.

Rural Revival said...

Speak for yourself, I'm jealous!!

: )

Randy said...

Love the horse shot! Hopefully Spring will catch a ride on his back and on it's way to you soon.

Jilda said...

great photos, I hope spring comes your way soon, the fever has hit you bad!

Jack said...

Cute, Dawn. All I can say is that spring will surely come. When, I don't know.

Life 101 said...

Your horse seems to be saying -- could you get me some sox?
We dodge violent weather here in the spring, but when our houses aren't getting blown away, it's usually very nice here in Alabama.

Alan O'Riordan said...

That horse does look pretty grumpy, it has to be said! Love the migrating birds pic, that could be on a postcard..

heyBJK said...

The horse cracks me up! Cool shot! Still waiting on some semblance of spring here, too.

Great photos, Dawn!

Horst in Edmonton said...

Hey Dawn, I think I here the weatherman saying that there is a little snow on it's way. But I do believe that spring is here.

Janie said...

I love the quizzical look on the horse's fact.
You're obviously more than ready for real spring. Me, too. We had a little taste of it for a week, but we're back to cold and possible snow today.

Heidi said...

Not much longer and Spring will really come to your neck of the woods. Hang in there!...Love your pics...Take care!
