A taste of Spring

March 30th, 2009

Last Saturday, Spring decided to tease us Ottawans with one gorgeous day. On a post-brunch walk that John and I took with friends Magda and Rod, we had a bit of an adventure…

We stumbled upon a rare breed of neon orange spider that gives off super-powers:

We discovered a pigeon mama-to-be, who’d built a feeble nest in the safety net under Laurier Bridge; her nest was so sparse that we could actually see the two eggs she was sitting on (you can see bits of other nests and eggshells in the net here too). The inset in the picture shows the Mum, zoomed in:

We said buh-bye to the melting ice on the Rideau Canal:

Of course, it’s been utterly frigid grey CRAP outside since Saturday… such is the fickleness of Ottawa weather. After a dark, frigid, bus-challenged winter in the nation’s capital, one day of premature warmth is a welcome hint as to what’s to come… hopefully soon!
