Day #66: New Growth

We’re actually into double digits here, today. With a high of 19 degrees at the moment. I think we’ve skipped the usual first part of spring, and gone straight to everything opening at once, and possibly heralding summer’s approach already. It’s been in the mid to upper twenties over in the prairies, while other parts of Canada were still getting frost warnings. Such is the weather these days, totally unpredictable.

But all that aside, I went out on the balcony to breath in, what I hope is, some fresh air, even if it is tinged with left over spring pollen. I may pay for that later, but hey, right now, my batteries feel charged, and more, I got a few minutes of Vit-D rather than COVID-19!

Ha! Suck on that Mother Nature. Well, okay, maybe not.

So other than soaking in a few rays of sunshine, and drinking my tea, Earl Grey, hot, I took a couple of photos. There’s not much out there, right now, to see in the way of flowers, or even greenery. The trees still haven’t quite unfurled their leaves, but I reckon by the end of the long bank holiday weekend, we’ll see that amazing spring acid green.

Oh, and they’re all out in the park next door, playing Boule. Yep, there’s about 20 grannies/OAPs out there battling the first game of the year, hopefully, keeping their physical distances from one another. The staff at the complex have also already put out the bench rockers for the elder (or, in fact, anyone) verging on the side of the park, the sun side. But, from what I can see from my balcony, they have at least spaced them out by about 10-15 feet in between.

That at least is something.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to drag my sun lounger out onto the balcony and go soak up some more sunshine.

Stay safe out there, today, whatever you’re doing this Sunday, and I hope you’ve been blessed with some good weather too.

      Thanks, Jonetta. It was lovely sitting out on the balcony watching the world go by, and listening to the people play boule, in the park.

    I’m really happy for you that you have a balcony and chairs, so you can get some sun. Just breathing actual air is great, isn’t it?

      Oh, you have no idea. The weather has been so iffy for months, and it takes ages for our spring to arrive, so getting out even on the balcony was an achievement, Margot. We might even sit out again, later. 😀
