Today At The Cottage.....













         My new Wellies!!

            Thanks Lissa & Jeff ♥️ 


     As you can see...

     Nothing much changed out at the lake...

                       Still LOTS of snow...

     Dirty snow at that!!

     Only 3*c down there...but here at home...11*c!!!

     The still frozen lake...is keeping things chilly...

       All in all....a very nice day though...

     Even did some clean-up here at home...

     In the back garden...

                                         ***********

     Hope you all had a great day...

     Last day of March.....thank goodness!

     Any April Fools tricks planned??       tee hee hee

  1. Lovely, lovely pictures. I love the detail you get in each shot. Felt like I could reach down and pick up that feather. And the ice picture..that is so interesting.

    Dinner as usual sound great...I'm going to make crusted tilapia, but haven't decided the side dishes yet, it's only 3:30 got time...Went to Costco this morning, so I do have choices...HaHa.

    Did I hit the "first" button...Sending hugs and smiles....PS love the pic of you in your blue boots.

  4. Well, Linda, I was going to say that it's looking pretty good at the cottage with lots of grass showing although the lake sure is looking a little frigid yet. lol It looks better than here I must admit. And if you're working at garden cleanup then you are doing really well. Beautiful pictures as always. Hugs, Pam

  5. The ice crystals are amazing! Great photo Linda. Love the new boots too! Great present. Hope that things start to defrost soon - amazing that the lake is still frozen, or quite normal for this time of year? xx

    1. No....not normal!
      This is the first time in 35 years that all the 5 Great Lakes froze!
      Oh...it freezes...but not usually right across...it should be open by now...
      This will set the start of summer waaaay back!
      Thanks for your thoughts!

  6. I love the shade of that plant beside the bird house. What would that be called? Your cottage is so homey. I would have done exactly the same thing on the staircase with the photos. Lots of good memories. I see you found your first feather of the season. I used to pick them up as I saw them when I had a little cat that really enjoyed playing with them. Once she passed on I forgot all about them.
    It was so nice here today. Lots of sun, no wind and it smelled like Spring. :) Deb

  7. Lovely photos ! It was a wonderful day here sunny blue sky's and the temps hit 10*C and that was in the shade . I was out all day with no coat taking photos, walking Miggs and cleaning up the yard a bit and got my first tan on my face this season ! My Hyacinths are above ground and snow is almost all gone . Spring has sprung here for sure . Tomorrow sunny and even warmer ! Thanks for sharing ! Have a good day !

  8. Pretty even with the snow.
    I need to plan a drive north of the border soon.
    Well, maybe when it thaws out a little bit more...
    Like say, June?

  9. We are down to our last itty bitty pile of snow which I decided to leave as is, just because:)
    Your pictures really do give the feeling of a thaw though Linda. It is taking a while but Mother Nature will pull us through:)

    Thanks for sharing, Linda...GREAT shots!
