Springs, shoots and leaves.

Recent History: April 6, 2010, 700 Block Windermere Road, Olde Walkerville photo. e. weeks

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, southern Ontario is supposed to get a dry, hot summer. (See for yourself: http://www.almanac.com/weather/longrange/region/ca/3#)

I say, bring it on! Enough already!

Tomorrow is April 6, 2011. There is a nary a green leaf to be seen on Windsor’s trees. But wouldja look at this photo from last April 6th! I can hardly believe it. To add insult to injury, we even had snow flurries today!

Could be worse, of course. If you haven’t read “Walking barefoot, uphill, in a snowstorm.” on this blog which is about historic snowstorms in Windsor in April and May, check it out.

Lots of shoots in the gardens at least, and fortunately, the forecast calls for warmer weather this weekend so I’m sure our treetops will be wearing their canopy of green very soon.

Can’t wait.

About Elaine Weeks

How history was taught in my day: memorize lots of boring dates and facts, watch corny old black & white history films. There was one bright spot, however. Grade 9 history at Walkerville Collegiate with Miss Falls (Georgina) when she taught a section on local history and took us on a field trip to explore some of Windsor's built heritage. Due to a series of peculiar events, celebrating local history became part of my business. My company, Walkerville Publishing Inc., (partner is Chris Edwards) launched "The Walkerville Times" in 1999 and we produced 61 issues - the last in 2016. In 2004, we began producing local history books; that year we released "Best of The Times Magazine". Our current titles include 5000 Ways You Know You're From Detroit, 500 Ways You Know You're From Windsor, Walkerville - Whisky Town Extraordinaire, and Windsor Then - A Pictorial Essay of Windsor's Glorious Past. I also wrote a novel, Time Trespasser, that blends time travel with local history. I am working on a sequel. I am a writer, editor, blogger, photographer, mother, wife, sister, activist, traveller, gardener, knitter, glass is nearly full person.
