Daisy and I took a brief walk. She climbed her favourite tree. You can see last year's leaves, along the deer trails. Then the mosses, which have come to life in our melt and rains. Normal temperatures are below the freezing point. The Rideau Canal skateway in Ottawa is closed.

Happy Paint Party Friday! I spent yesterday afternoon at the kitchen table drawing, while the snow fell. Here is an old one I'd done. We have flying squirrels, red squirrels, black squirrels all over the place! The black squirrel, sitting on the railing in the snow, JB called Slow Eddy!

What a time I've had! I decided to put a feeder up in the wetland to try and capture photos of the Snowshoe hare. With my new gloves (on sale at a leather shop that was going out of business- thank you hubby!), I showed the size of my hare! Down I went to the edge of the wetland.
