We had a really good, and very busy, Easter weekend. The above photo was taken Thursday evening on our way to church for music practice. The rivers are up and flooding their banks so all the fields were flooded. So far it hasn't breeched the roadway!
The Islands in the river are flooded as well, a usual occurrence. The St. John River runs through the province from northern Maine down to the Bay of Fundy in Saint John and is now totally ice free, which is good, as there won't be any ice jams causing major flooding of the Perth-Andover town upriver. However, it doesn't mean there won't be anymore flooding of properties.
This is the much same view taken on Friday morning on the way to church. It looks so much prettier in the sunshine with blue skies doesn't it?
We had our Easter dinner on Good Friday as it was the only day our son and daughter-in-law weren't busy with her family and because of our music commitments at church all weekend. I made a little white cake with vanilla butter frosting (and a few sprinkles) for dessert along with 'fresh' strawberries (all the way from Florida so I'm being facetious when I say 'fresh'). I found the recipe on my friend Faye's blog "The Blessed Hearth" and it is delicious!

Saturday was sunny and warm at 15C so we got some yard cleanup done before we had to head to church to practice for the evening service.
A Tree Swallow peeks out of the birdhouse behind our back deck on Saturday afternoon. There have been a few around all week and they have been visiting now and then staking claim to this house. This afternoon there was an Eastern Bluebird checking out this same box which could be interesting to see which wins out. We put another box about 20 feet away which the Bluebirds were checking out on Sunday.

And the beautiful male Bluebird sitting on the clothesline waiting. Isn't that typical - the wife out 'shopping' and the husband waiting. 😁
Our snow is just about gone. There are two patches in the ditch by the driveway and a small patch out back. It is hard to believe all that snow went so quickly. Mind you, we woke to a dusting of snow this morning which has since melted, and it's really chilly here today, so our wintry weather isn't finished with us yet.
Today is dull, cloudy and cold. But, I see green in the brown grass and the buds on the trees are swelling and the daffodils have buds forming.
I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend and wish you a beautiful spring-like week ahead.
Thank you so much for visiting and commenting.
