Marching into town

The library was to close as the warning signs of COVID–19 were there, so we hustled in to pick up some books on March 13th. I figured I'd best post this now! We've had a busy few weeks. We have the girls back today till Friday.



After scoring books, we went to lunch for the last time!



I like this wall!



What is wrong with this picture?



The Big Rideau is almost thawed.



Our ice isn't out yet, but it is getting close. It's too early for the chorus frogs. I've heard spring peepers, but the chorus frogs are our target. It has to be above 10 C., wind below 20 km/h, and no ice. Maybe Friday!


Chorus frogs typically breed in vernal ponds, like ours, which means with different conditions, different habitats may or may not have water. This year is a good year, I think. We've had lots of rain, if not snow melt.

...I guess that in these times, an empty town is a safe town.

What an idiot - does he not understand you load timber up over the cab roof and not stretching a metre + out the back??? OR AT LEAST PUT A RED RAG THERE!!! Or maybe he's ensuring the two-metre rule...8~} YAM xx

On this day last year we had a monster of a snowstorm. we were looking back at the photos, whew!
We don't really see or hear any froggies until about the first week of May. On the other hand, our creek is really running and we see what I think are frogs eggs.

Jenn - how lucky you were to get to the library and a restaurant before the world closed down on you! Stay well!

That green chair looks interesting. Lovely photos of the lake. Hope you can find some art that the grandies like doing.
