One of these event photos is my April Fools Day trick. What did I NOT do today??
I went shopping at an American chain store in Canada with my daughter before she drove back to Ottawa.
I braved blizzard conditions and a breath-taking north wind for three hours at an almost deserted conservation area. The sun appeared between snow showers but the wind prevailed.
I saw my first Meadowlark and Song Sparrow of the season. A Sandhill Crane flew above me into the sun. There were no Bluebirds or Tree Swallows, but then, there were no flying insects either.
I came across a few clumps of blooming Snowdrops along a sheltered and southerly facing section of a trail.
Autumn and Spring met together in this photo. Several times I thought I saw a bird flying by but it was only a leaf in the wind.
I came home and cleaned the house from top to bottom, gathering a pail full of dog hair before garbage day tomorrow.
