Summer is coming to town!  It’s above 5 C (41F) for the first time since the end of October.  I went for a photo walk to the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden this afternoon, but took a few images of ‘hopes of summer’ along the way.

There is more activity in the underbrush, some of the buds are starting to form. The squirrels are wondering when the summer food will be available.

During the winter the evergreens become much darker – it’s very encouraging to see them greening up again.

The shadows at 2 in the afternoon are still quite long. We will be glad of the shade once summer arrives.
