Springy Feelings

Mar 20, 2016 by















If you’ve ever survived a Canadian spring, you’ll know that it’s anything but the quintessential green and spritely image of freshness that you might believe. It’s shades of brown and grey, and there’s a ubiquitous slop… not to mention a persistent threat of yet another dump of snow just around the corner.

Eventually, trees begin to bud, and yes, the green appears, but before then, there isn’t a lot of pretty.

So for today, I’m channeling some good feels, those Irish greens, and a stubborn sun that came out on my friend’s wedding day in a region notorious for cloudy, rainy days. Let us channel that hope, and maybe spring, as it is right now, is here to stay. For the life of me, I refuse to turn my heat back on.


Happy Spring! Find me on Facebook, twitter and Instagram. Let’s share those sunny vibes.

  1. Oh yes, I know the feeling! … and I’m looking forward to it in Ontario. The snow melted quite a bit but it’s still far from being Irish green around here.

      Oh, Ontario, how you tease. We had an ice storm last week, ergh!

  2. Everything looks so much better in Spring! Great photos!

  3. These might just be the very first sunshiny photos I’ve ever seen of Ireland! Which makes me want to go even more. 🙂

      Oh, yes. We were very lucky! I really hope you get to go soon. I know how you’ve been pining for the old sod.

  4. Oh Spring.. I miss it. I miss living in a country with four seasons. Everything is so green!

      I see you are living in Myanmar. How different! I have never been, but I can imagine it is odd being without the cycle of seasons, if that’s the case for you. Coming from Canada, I am unsatisfied if I don’t survive an annual deep-freeze winter. Ha.

    Spring has just sprung over here … a few great warm days, but a little chilly at the moment. Still, glad that winter is finally over with!

      Oh nice, where are you based?
      I am very glad to be getting on to some nicer weather!
