Spring has Sprung...

The local paper reporedt that a meter of snow has fallen and records have been broken. What a winter it has been and there are still piles of snow here and there.

I have seen signs of Spring - Snow Drops, buds on the Lilacs, rain and a return to our more normal coastal conditions.

Winters last fling knocked down an old storage area. It took a while to clean the mess up, now I need to make/find places for the displaced tools and equipment.

My neighbor installed a live edge Maple counter top and I gave him a hand, it was a very heavy slice of beautiful wood.

Looking forward to trying my new tiller soon. 

Some shots of the big leaf Maples I had to fell, luck I had some help from my neighbour. Saved 7 big logs for future projects.

Top picture is the shed area all cleaned up. The snow is melting and Buddy is very happy to put his feet on the grass again !

Thanks for the visit.



  1. A lot of snow at your place has melted since last week, ours is mostly gone, just a few big piles here and there. There is always so much work to do after winter storms. I have a lot of big branches that are going to take significant time to clean up but I am waiting till it is warm enough to work outside. Hugs.

  2. You certainly had an unusual amount of snow. We have family in Langford and the grandkids loved playing in the snow.

  3. Wishing you a happy Mosaic Monday in Springtime

    much love...

  4. Rob, The maple wood counter top looks wonderful. The cleaned up space must feel really good. Thanks for sharing. Sylvia D.

  5. Hi Rob ... I have missed reading your blogs. Always love to see what you are doing. Love that wood counter top. What a beautiful piece of wood. You will love the Mantis tiller. I had one and I really enjoyed using it.

  6. Spring is a wonderful season, full of expectations and hope. Happy week.

  7. Welcome to Mosaic Monday, it's good to have your company and to see your corner of the world and what goes on there. The countertop is magnificent, the wood is so beautiful and very tactile looking. Glad to see that the snow didn't cause too much damage and that the storage area has been restored to normal now.
    Have a great week.

  8. That Maple counter is gorgeous! Sounds like you have a busy spring to look forward too!

  9. That is a lot of snow but seeing signs of spring peeping through is always good. The maple counter is beautiful! Thank you for sharing at Link It Up Wednesday!

  10. It's always good to have plans and you seem to have lots to work with when spring arrives! That counter is so amazing!
