Cottage Visit..........


We had to park across the street...

Too much snow from the plow...

Luckily we had left the gate ajar...

So we could squeeze through!!

 


Lots of drifting snow...

The winds must have been ferocious...

The steps to the beach, were blocked by a huge drift...

On the Western side of the property... 



Very cloudy...damp...breezy...around 4*C...

 

Here you can see the drifting along the West side...

My huge rock/perennial garden lies beneath all that snow...

The beach was unaccessible this trip...

Never remember that happening before...

But...it was pretty windy and cold the closer I got...
 

Some spots were bare grass...

This could be a long Spring thaw...

 

Thru the window gives a better idea of the drifting...

Lots of Spring work to be done....yikes!!

 




 As we say goodbye after another visit...

We can only think of what is to come...

Green...

Beach deck...

Dinner on the sunporch...with the windows to the kitchen wide open...

Oh...and...those Sunsets...

To die for...

Dreaming here..... :o)




Hope you are all having a great day...

Sunny here...but chilly...

We have Miss V visiting...she is still napping...since 1pm...such a good girl♥️

We did some Easter crafts...

Papa took her to the park on her bike...

Had a great lunch...

Her Mom will be joining us for dinner tonight...

Got some fresh Cod soaking in buttermilk...

Gonna make some fried rice to go along with the crispy baked fish...

Perhaps a few Brussel Sprouts will go nicely...


enjoy your evening...

                              Cheers!  :o)

  1. Those are huge drifts. The sun needs to get out and do some work on melting them down. It's a lovely sunny day here, but on the cool side. I'm catching up on jobs after going to Canada Blooms yesterday.

  6. Must have been a lot of snow there and drifting.
    The snow looks picturesque ~ nice to look at but cold to be in . . . brr!
    Quite a comparison between cold and warm visits. Bet you can't wait for the weather to buck up.
    Lovely picture of you both.
    Of you . . you seem to have a spare pair of glasses on your head . . . had you lost them? . . lol . . .
    Had a rest from Peter today ~ felt a little under the weather . . . :)

    3. Not sure what I am...but I need glasses to see up close!

  7. I'm liking the last few photos more than the snowy scenes and it will happen and you will enjoy some wonderful days and evenings there this year. It's surprising how fast the snow melts once it starts. I'm amazed every year. So when I look out and see 4 and 5 foot drifts and snowbanks I will remember how fast it melts ONCE THE WEATHER WARMS UP!!!! We have more snow coming on Saturday. Yep. Can't go more than 3 days without it. Just wouldn't be right. Enjoy!

  11. I want to try the cod soaked in buttermilk too - always sounds so tasty. Fun winter AND summer shots. How fortunate you are to have such a beautiful property - and right on the water. People kill for that!. Well... let's hope not in reality - ha! But truly - you have a beautiful cottage and a beautiful home. Lovely photo of you and the bf!

  17. Hi Linda. All that snow...and then the lovely green grass and flip flops.....the best of both worlds. I do love that picture of you and your boyfriend. I read about your dinner....and I had panko crusted tilapia and over roasted potatoes, onions and bell peppers. Love Oven Dinners.

    Have a great week end....hugs.

  21. Snow and sunshine. Gotta love those changing seasons, unless it's mid-March and they aren't changing... ha ha!
    Flip flops sound good. Now I just need some warmer weather and a bit of green grass.
