In rainy and balmy weather

You can stay inside, but why would you?
It is fun to be outside and feel you are part of the natural elements.
The same thing you do with a water table inside is what you can do in a puddle.
This is also a great way to learn about the rain, what happens when it rains? Children love it too.

Spring Cooking

Are you happy spring is here? So am I, not because nice weather, but because of fresh produce. For me asparagus and artichokes are a sign of spring, as well as kids playing with dandelions and violets. Being so lucky to live in Ontario I have been introduced to fiddleheads as well. So this is a sure sign of spring for me too. I'm happy to say my kales are producing and that rhubarb is growing in my small backyard.

Easter decoration

Yesterday was time for us to begin preparing for Easter so we started with some outdoor Easter decorations. Since daffodils represent Easter for me, we decided to make some Easter daffodil pots and brought our craft materials outside to the front porch.

Spring poem

The spring has arrived very early this year in Toronto. We have had so such gorgeous weather with buds and flowers blooming. This weather reminds me of one of my favorite poems by Swedish poet, Karin Boye. “Ja visst gör det ont”. It is a very well known poem in Scandinavia that I think captures how nature connects us with life. Perhaps in a slightly melancholy way but it also gives us hope. Enjoy, and happy Spring !
