Goodbye winter

This photo is from a snow day a few weeks ago, just before Christmas. I can never resist taking pictures of my garden, especially when flowers are battling the elements (and winning).

“There aren’t enough words for rain,” said Lorna Crozier in last weekend’s Globe. That’s today, all right. Rain, rain, and more rain. Compared to the rest of the country (and continent), there’s nothing here  to complain about. A few inches of snow a few times a year is a novelty, a chance to tromp around in a pair of neglected winter boots from my Alberta days, and the rain, well, I like it too, most of the time. Still, would I rather be going to Hawaii today?

Well, ok.
