Spring Has Not Sprung - Yet!

Posted by Julie Brown on Monday, March 5, 2012, In : Living by the Brook 


The blizzard has moved on, leaving bitter cold and lots of snow in it's wake.  The view from my front porch is considerably different this morning, compared to two days ago.  From inside it looks to be a beautiful and sunny winter wonderland.  Step outside, however, and Jack Frost immediately nips bites freezes solid any exposed flesh.  The -39 celsius temperature doesn't stop my hardy, outdoor loving dog Heart from enjoying the sun and snow.  She's taking a break from digging tunnels in the ...

Was planning on heading out to my studio today, but after looking out my front window, I decided to stay in and work on the website instead.  These little finches just happened to fly into the shot.  They are more intrepid than I!

A Bit About Julie
