Well, although our April here in Ottawa is (typically) not quite as colorful as this picture, it does bring signs of spring. We drove up to our cottage this past weekend to check things out and still could not get in the driveway as it is covered in snow, but things are starting to thaw out:
We took a drive up to our cottage on Palmerston Lake in Ompah, Ontario today to see if spring has arrived up there. Although there is quite a bit more snow up there than here in Ottawa and it was 5 degrees cooler, there were a few signs of spring…
the snow levels have subsided and the wild turkeys have been to visit:
the ice is breaking up on the lake:
and the water levels are really high:
Looks like it may be a while before we will be swimming in Palmerston Lake!
