Nature Friday - Run A Foul

Thanks to Rosy for hosting this hop.

There was some excitement in the hills last week when this unidentified foul has spent about a week living between our house and the neighbours. It was posted on the missing animal site. Bird is our new neighbour.

Tasty Tuesday - Wings

 Dear Pals,

Now as you know recently someone, likely rogue trash pandas, got into the garbage and planted my body with chicken wing bones. Coincidently, I was a little sick. 

What you might not know is I am not a begger. I rarely sit at the table waiting for a tasty morsel. Lady and Man thought  this was very suspicious behaviour last week in wing night. 

What do you think?

No Mischief On Monday - The Snow Is Gone - Winner!

Although on the weekend Facebook reminded up that 2 years ago and 3 years ago we had storms, we are thrilled to report the last of the snow is gone! 

For those who guessed later in the month, don't be sad. Previous years the snow has left between April 26-May 11. This is a very early spring.

This is the spot the last of the snow melted.

The last of the snow melted in the morning of April 11. That means this year's winners are Marv and the gang. Marv, please email us at leeandphodATbellDOTca (Lady will also try to reach out.)

Thanks to everyone who played!

Nature Friday - Contest Update And A Surprise

 First, we join Blogville in wishing Marg a very happy birthday!

Here is our flower for Marg! Thanks Rosy for hosting this.

Now onto the When Will The Snow Be Gone Contest.

This weeks guessers, LLB Gang, Gemma's Person and Cecilia were so close but as of 5:30 last night . . .

the front yard is now officially snow free, 

but the side and backyard still have some snow.

Will the temperatures be warm enough to melt the snow on or before Susan's guess of April 10, or will Marv and friends have the closest guess without going over on April 19? 

Only time will tell! We are just excited that this is the earliest spring we have had recently!

Why Phod Ended Up In The Tub

We are very lucky that our neighbours, who own all the bush behind our house, allow us to use their trails. On the weekend we went for a hike. In places the trail was very muddy. In places it was frozen and snowy.   Turns out Phod really loves to walk in the mud so that is why he needed a tubby. 

On our walk we crossed a creek. 

We also walked by the neighbour's sugar bush. The blue cords are running the sap into the big blue barrels. They will take these back to their house and boil it. They will likely do this outside, we haven't asked. Next time we see Callie's people we will ask. Our province of Quebec produces 91% of Canada's maple syrup. Canada supplies the world with 75% of the world with maple syrup. 

It was a great walk but Lady said for now we can only do it when we have time for a bath!
