|our lake finally melting|
Growing up in the south, everyday was like spring....and then a few days later it would be hot summer. But, I will never forget the first spring in Canada. It was an experience! It was as if the world came alive again. The empty frozen streets, became busy again..with people waking, biking, window shopping....the barren brown landscape transformed to a beautiful green almost overnight and the skies left behind their winter grey. In almost everyone's face was a look of...We made it through!
I often wondered if I could appreciate spring in Canada, if I did not go through the long winter first.
