Some signs of spring… but not a lot!

There are patches of spring flowers here and there; daffodils, snowdrops and just the tops of tulips.  The grass is getting greener and even a few trees have started to form the buds that will be this years foliage but on the whole… it still looks and feels pretty much like winter.  Especially with temperatures no higher than the low 40’s, snow showers appearing off and on and still we wear coats and hats.

You that have cherry blossoms and other flowers blooming now are very fortunate.  Ours will get here, one of these days.  When everything is blooming here in the park this area makes a beautiful backdrop for portraits.  It’s waiting for the weather to cooperate too.

    It’s a very hot Autumn/Fall here in Sydney. Very strange.

    Yep, strange is the new normal.

    That’s a great looking gazebo. Now all you need is spring weather. I forgot to mention that besides being hot and dry here, it was very windy with lots of dust. Very bad for allergies.

        Weathered look. It was in at one time or another. I remember when I was a teenager I worked for an artisan woodworker, and we would build custom doors. The “distressed” look was in back then, so after we got beautiful doors built, before we stained and finished them, we would beat them with chains that had nuts and bolts screwed through the links.

      • I recall reading how to “distress” furniture DIY and it was pretty similar to your method.

    What a beautiful gazebo Teri! I am happy you photographed it now- the weathered wood and all the details in the construction show up so well before they are covered in all green- two beautiful looks for the same gazebo.
    I can see why it must be a popular backdrop for photos.
    We are still in the 30s here in the Boston area 😦

    We had spring and then lost it again. She is elusive.
