Spring in Alberta

Here are a few photos from April in Alberta. The white and orange stuff is snow. It will be Spring there, maybe for one day, eventually, but not yet, then it turns to Summer. Thoughts come around to Earth Day, this year on Good Friday, the ground will be a bit too hard with ice to plant trees... Anyway, Happy Easter!, and keep warm! Don't work too hard, Irena, and all of you, preparing for Easter, get some of the others to do the jobs!

Last thing I want to be seeing at the moment is snow, we've only just got rid of the wretched stuff. Perhaps you can work your Photoshop magic and turn them into Summer in Alberta.

I have said it before, but I'm saying it again...I cannot even begin to compehend those temperatures or fathom why anyone would willing venture outdoors in them! Shows how spoilt I am :)

Minus 14! Shivverage! That takes me back to November and burst water pipes (outdoor ones and in spite of lots of lagging!).

Schöne Fotos aber plus 14° C und Frühlingsblumen sind im Moment doch schöner.

Frohe Ostern, Michael and Hanne!

Although what can be froh about Ostern at minus 14 beats me.
