More like Summer!

 I live in Nova Scotia!
~~~1/2 way between the North Pole and the Equator~~~
along the western side of North Atlantic.

It's the first week of Spring 
and
the temps waver 
up and down 
around 4C(39F)

Weather wise...Snow...Crispy...Cool, not Cold...just Bearable!

 So this is the way that I'm used to my world at this time of year.

 Well, this year is different...so very different!
This year the temps are way out of whack!

 24 degrees Celsius (75F) today,
so I went swimming tonight with Mr. Orangie
(because he floats)!

 Sunset was really outta this world!

no matter from what direction 

and with this view and the warm winds
blowing on us.....

it really felt like summer....
Is this another Mother Nature tease?

  1. We've been having strange weather here in Oz, too. VERY wet and cool to warmish. Strange summer. Enjoy your good weather. You'd better get some back up Mr orangys AND whistling blues....sort of land and sea balls.

    1. I've seen the rainy weather conditions in Oz and hoped you weren't super effected by this wetness...the planet's weather is really acting up and I'm afraid were are going to see more unsettled conditions. You are right..about getting BALL back ups with the way Sophie goes through her loot of toys!!

    1. That's what crossed my mind too...last year our summer was wet and I suspect this year it'll be dry...nix the humidity and I can handle the heat somewhat!

  6. Lovely, gorgeous, wonderful pictures!

    Yes, I believe we will be having some strange weather this year!

    Today, we are having a cool and rainy spring day. We haven't seen "normal" for a couple weeks now.

    Glad you got out for a swim! It looks luscious!

  10. Lovely pictures your Dad took....but wasn´t it cold in the water? We had very warm skiing, about +13 C sunny and blue sky...Back home it was very warm today and our little ones laid outside the whole day. Tomorrow last day skiing and then back home, we long for our 4legged ones :-)

  14. It's crazy weather - we have snow on the ground and temps in the high 20's. That just feels wrong. Although certainly less snow now than when this heat started on Tuesday. Wasn't the water cold, Sophie?

    1. Not bad..temp wise...the water keeps moving in and out quickly so she doesn't mind the coldness!

  15. Incredible! We have no complaints yet of this unseasonably warm spring. 80's the last few days. It makes you wonder what we're in for.
    I am glad that some of it made it your way though. We like to share
