I don’t know about where you live, but around here the weather has been nothing short of unbelievable.  Record-breaking.  And I must admit a tad concerning.  I can’t shake the feeling that some sort of April snowmageddon is inevitable given how nice the weather has been.  It’s been in the mid to high 20s for days, and I’m beginning to forget that it’s not actually summer yet.  I mean, we’ve had a humidex factor the last few days!  (I understand that things will be a bit more normal this weekend.)

Stella is thrilled.  Her favourite warm-weather pastime is to chill on the balcony off my studio and watch the world below.  The neighbours refer to her as Queen Stella, surveying her vast kingdom.  She never barks, just observes intently.

Surveying her kingdom.

Surveying her kingdom.

Surveying her kingdom.

Surveying her kingdom.

Of course, Stella and I aren’t the only one’s enjoying the warmth.  My garden is coming alive at a rapid – alarming? – rate.  In fact, there are a few things coming up that will very likely need protection from the inevitable spring frost yet to come.  But for now it’s been nice to get into the garden and start to clean things up.


It’s also been a great opportunity to get a jump start on some of the spring cleaning chores around the house.  Am I the only one who sees quilt designs everywhere I look?

Spring cleaning...

I hope you’re all enjoying some lovely weather, no matter where you are!
