Post Easter

We had a reasonably pleasant weekend. Saturday was cloudy and warm. Sunday was cloudy and warm. Monday was BEAUTIFUL. We loaded up the dog and went for a drive. The river is down a couple of feet back of us, but the weather people say don't get to complacent.

I don't think these neighbours have water in their basement - yet.

We saw this funny looking critter.

It's a llama.  Two were shorn and two were waiting. 

Some pretty things and a yummy thing. Did you get any Easter treats?



This one lounging in the sunbeam, as long as the cats let her. 

Did you notice the cardboard taped to the post? I've found it to be quite effect to discourage scratching. 

No photos of my yard right now. It's an awful mess. Snowbanks and mud, bits of bark and wood. Piles of doggie doo doo. I've been trying to clean it up but it's awfully soggy. 
When I went out to check the mail today I noticed lots of garbage around the mailbox where the snow has melted. Our garbage collectors drop a lot on the road. There are still snowbanks in the ditches on this side, but I'm sure there will be lots more trash to pick up. One of these days I'll walk up the back road and see how dirty and nasty the loggers have been. Past experience has not been encouraging with that lot. 

I had my tea on the back porch this morning. There are lots of little birds enjoying the food I'm putting out for them. There was also a wee chipmunk who bravely walked right past the sleeping labrador! There were dozens of them, then suddenly they were all making a lot of noise and flew off in a gang. I didn't see the hawk but I'm sure they all did!

The River

Our river has breached it's banks. I saw a photo taken an hour before mine on Facebook. We popped over the hill and couldn't believe how much worse it was in that short time. The police have closed the highway because it's only going to get worse.
