Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

Feels Like Spring

When the daily temperatures rise to double digits celcius consistently day to day and my lilac bushes begin to swell their blooms, I feel I can really say Spring is here. Some root crops could be planted in the garden and in a couple of weeks crops that can withstand a light frost can also go and then in early June the rest of the garden can be planted.

Heidi and I went for a walk to see the river.

Heidi enjoyed getting her feet wet and have a long drink of the cold water.















Looking back across the plowed field you just see the house.

















Looking across the river there is the cabin. I don't often walked down from the house and get this view of it.



















The river is full after some recent rain and the final melting of the snow in the bush in the Temagami highland area up stream. You can see the cabin downstream from here on our bridge. (click on photo to enlarge it)

You mention planting. It makes me want to get out in the garden too.

What a lovely spot, Philip. I can see why the city lights can't lure you away for very long.
And to have Heidi to enjoy it with is icing on the cake.!

Wow, how beautiful! I can just imagine being in that cabin, watching the river roll by. Serenity.
Lucky you!
