An Unusual Face

I wasn’t paying much attention to the ads on TV last night – can’t even remember what show was on, it was late, past midnight and I was just putting away my knitting before turning off the TV when this image came on the screen. I love the rewind feature on my PVR! I was able to scroll back and find the face that jumped out at me.

I don’t imagine Ford intended the face to be so graphic. I would actually be unable to sit behind the wheel of this car because it would greatly annoy me. I haven’t looked at my own vehicle – must do that to see whether it also has a face there as well as on the front of the car!

Happy face! I didn't see this when I bought the car but I caught it this morning. Check out a lot of other cars -  their faces aren't so happy!

Spring Is Here!

Spring has finally arrived in Nova Scotia – the Coltsfoot has popped up! I noticed this patch on the roadside as I was driving by late this morning on my way to pick up a friend for lunch. The cheery yellow flowers are our first spring blooms. 

The temperature actually reached double digits today and the snow patches are all but gone, thank goodness. I was happy to see these harbingers of warmer weather to come. 

Next flower to look for is Forsythia – for the last many years it has come into bloom between May 3-6. Not this year for sure! I must keep an eye out for the shrubs in my neighbourhood. (I do have a few pathetic crocuses in my front garden bed, but the display is so paltry it doesn’t count as spring.)
