Lake Ice and Crocuses

This is the paradoxical state of weather currently in La Ronge: The sun is shining, my crocuses and dwarf irises are in full bloom, snowmobiles cruise by on the lake ice, and it will be another month until all the ice is melted.

Our snow-munching doggy is now sleeping at the foot of the largest spruce tree in the backyard. While this habit makes her smell forest-fresh, the sticky spruce gum on her nose attracts dirt and looks terrible. Oh well.

I just had to post a few more pictures of the crocuses. They are lovely yet so fleeting.

Don't you just love crocuses? Assuming the rodents don't get them, they are reliable harbringers of spring.
