We have been enjoying some deliciously warm days lately and survived two blustery days, Wednesday and Thursday. Last night, as the wind roared through the streets and yard, I caught site of someone's downspout blowing down the street. The garbage can on the deck had to be weighted down as it refused to stay upright in the wind and the poor dogs were uptight, barking at every noise. The gusts ranged from 20 to 50-70km/hr, blowing everything and making such a noise. I thought the dogs would never settle down.
This morning, as I stood out on the back deck, surveying the damage, which was minimal, I noticed the rhododendron is beginning to flower. These photos were taken around 7:30 this morning. I expect by the end of the day, they will be fully opened.
How delightful!! Spring is finally here! I think I said that earlier in another post, but I am so happy it is that I just have to say it again and again! Spring has arrived in Edmonton!! woot!
I am flaunting my flowers with Glenda at Tootsie Time for Fertilizer Friday, first time in a long time.
