It is raining again in Corran. I took an hour and walked around the region to get some photos of the gloomy weather here today. I guess I should be happy it is not snow. The rain is expected to continue for a couple days before milder spring weather arrives. It will soon be time to begin my book tour, heading down to Toronto first before flying out to Vancouver.
Our little gatherings have come a long way in the past year and I plan on keeping them up through 2018. The last get together was on Monday the fifth and ten people made it out to visit. It is great to get together with friends and neighbours to talk about things. I believe this is a better way to communicate with each other instead of just sending out notices and Instant Messages (IM). The smallest gathering I held had about five people attend, the largest had over twenty stop by. I plan on holding another gathering on Tuesday, March 20th.
No winter lasts forever;
no spring skips its' turn.
Winter has left, hopefully for another year, from the Corran region. We have had a week of heavy rainfall and the lake level went up about 0.3 metres for the duration. The ice of the skate pond melted and broke up about ten days ago quickly ending the skating season just a day or two before the Gathering.
The rainfall has been great for growing and greening up the region, the trees are full and green while the dandelions and daffodils have taken over the landscape.
I have not seen my neighbour in over a week I think she must be away. I wonder if she knows that winter is gone from our islands in the bay. I need to start working on a new garden, the previous owners did not have one for some reason. I love growing my own vegetables, so much better than the canned food all winter.
