Spring is definitely here on the Island - Woo Hoo!!!
"Warmed by the sun" Yay! that is what I am waiting for! Today was a gorgeous spring day, it started out chilly, but it was beautiful outside. The birds are back from their southern vacation and in the morning it is a cacophony of bird song. I love hearing all the little birds sing and warble. This is a definite sign that spring is here. Another sign of spring is every once in awhile you get a whiff of chicken manure that the city has used to fertilize the boulevard gardens. We are also starting the annual Victoria flower count. Last year there wasn't much to count because of the weather. Just that small amount of sunshine and the trees are ready to burst into bloom. I have to say I am so happy that there is light at the end of the winter tunnel, I think because I bike/scooter commuted all winter that it makes it feel like it has been dragging on forever. I am not complaining really, because most of my 2 wheeling compatriots are dealing with snow and parked motorcycles and scooters. The end of winter is in sight, just hang in there and you will be tearing up the twisties before you know it!
Today I met up with Kiwi_Deb for our usual ride home. It was spectacular being in lovely sunshine. We took our usual beach side route and stopped at the top of Beacon Hill park and enjoyed the sun & took some pictures.
