Strange days have found us. Still the birds sing, and why shouldn’t they? 

For them it’s business as usual. Singing for a mate. The ground is softening up, tempting a few seeds sown. My guess is the garlic, planted in fall, will be the first to show. 

The skies are exceptionally clear and blue. Snow is in every shaded crook and cranny. The roads will rise and fall as frost retreats. 

If this keeps up, I’m going to appreciate less tourists racing around. Then again, we will have to get used to less money, gardens being raided, watching for spring time cress and saving our energy.

Just like the Song Sparrow, we have been put on alert.

    No tourist Season here in PEI for 2020 which will create an economic vacuum and kill off some of the 825 Air B&B we have in Charlottetown thus helping with the housing crisis. Be safe and enjoy Spring. Best Wishes to you.

      Thanks Larry! Happy belated birthday. I heard you got the last two bottles of Prosecco on the Island. Not bad for a 94 year old. 🙂

      Hi Julie, I can’t imagine you having a bare garden, you are much to clever for that. 🙂 All the best to you and Andrew. Also, I hope Bill is holed up safe with you guys. Take care. Bob
