What a difference a month makes

On the 17th April 2013, we had a nice dump of snow.  
Again.  
April was long and cold, and it seemed that winter was simply going to refuse to give way.
But by the end of April, the temperatures finally rose quickly and the icy lakes melted and single blades of green grass proudly emerged from the dull landscape.  

And one month later, wow, what a transformation.

Foliage is alive.  The landscape has awoken.  
Calgarians have come out of hibernation.
And I have managed to spend a few hours weeding some flower beds and gathering some instant colour from hanging baskets and pots.
Colour, at last.  Yay.
