qbnscholar said: Enough buttons already, but cute. Great shot, simple, to the point.

Relax qbnscholar - no need to press the panic button Fern!!  But, as usual, you are right on the button with your support and comments and I hope you know how much I always appreciate that so very much.  Teehee!!   :D

Seen on Gilford Street one day in May. If I said this was cute as a button would I be pushing your buttons?

The sun comes, the sun goes, the temps rise, the temps drop and it’s the return of the snow. Today I woke up to the sun shining and now its obscured by a massive cover of clouds. I wish Spring would hurry and get here (again) and stay for while. I don’t even mind a little rain because, then, I know what will follow - some much needed green to be followed by pinks and oranges and yes, even some blues.  As an aside, I found a wee caterpillar on my patio last night outside and I thought the little critter might catch cold. I picked it up and brought it up to the balcony where I put it in a pot of eventually to be blooming perennials and covered it with a leaf - okay so it was a crispy leaf left over from last year but hey, at least it provided some shelter from a pending storm…

"I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of nature; lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of trees embroider across the sky, and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin." Coco Chanel, April 29, 1939

Sometimes Mondays aren’t so bad… this morning I discovered that biutifulpics had re-blogged “out of the darkness” over the weekend… so if I may just say dank je wel to Gerardo for that and may you all have a beautiful week.

We’ve had some nice hints of spring these past few days and temps even got up to 22C today but with Humidex (yeah, we had a freaking Humidex) it felt like 28C!!  LOL!  Joke’s on us because… winter is coming… at least on Tuesday into Wednesday when the temps are going to take a big dive and with the rain coming in starting tonight, we may all be skating to work come Wednesday morning when the thermometer is going to be hovering around -3C (figures, just cold enough to freeze).   Is it because I cheered when they did in King Joffrey, Mother Nature?

Well, technically, it’s white but, you know what I mean.  I’ve looked at this long after posting and it might be slightly off kilter but, then again, I do have one leg ever, ever so shorter than the other… nudge, nudge, wink, wink.
