Spring is starting to poke through

The top of my is rockery poking through today, the snow is receding slowly but as you can see we still have quite a bit.

The rockery covers a really ugly raised man hole cover for the sewer line. So a few years ago we collected a lot of stones from near the lake that have pink and greenish tones and built a rockery around it but we had to leave the very top available in case the village needed access. So hubby made a round box to cover the metal manhole cover and I filled it with plants. The rockery looks really attractive later on in the year and no one would realize it is part of the village sewer line.

Although a few nearby communities here got a little bit of a dusting this morning, it was gone by mid-day so nothing of the snow now left on the ground around here -thankfully! But then, we didn't get near the accumulation over the winter months as did your region so no wonder you still have a good bit of the white stuff yet to melt! Glad it's not here, believe me!

Wow, you do have a lot of snow left still. One tiny patch in the back yard ... where we had shoveled.

A beautiful sunny day yesterday but cold. Brrrr.

Thanks for stopping by...You can leave comments on ONe of the Jones...(the other blogs are rarely updated..only when we think of it...LOL!)
We started the blog, when I got pregnant with my son, as a way to keep my friends and family (at that time mostly in BC) updated, because I hate the phone, and get accused of not calling...I love blogging, so it worked!)
Glad to see your back...
