A Short Week - SkyWatch Friday and Other Stuff

This is a photo I took this morning. Vapour trails. X marks the spot! We have beautiful spring weather. You couldn't ask for anything better.

Here is a photo I took on Tuesday. This is the view of the University of Toronto's Scarborough Campus from the Morningside bridge. I always think of a hidden science lab when I see this scene. I think it was used in an old film called "Strange Brew". My DD did her undergraduate and post graduate work at this campus. She was in microbiology. Maybe that's why I think of a lab. It's a beautiful campus.

For more SkyWatch photos go here.

And on my travels I spied the first dandelion of the season. I was so excited that I almost fell off my scooter! Someone was just riding by on a bicycle. She asked if she could help me and I had to tell her that I was okay and just excited about a dandelion!
I am sorry to report that I have not finished my UFO for March. It's been so nice out, that I have been scootering around and working in my garden. There are only so many hours in a day. (Sigh)

But I did do the Friday Block Party block called, 'Nine O'Clock'. Go to it on my sidebar. It's an easy one and 10 inches square. I used green and blue in honour of spring!

I had to laugh at how excited you were over the little dandelion! After a long winter even I get excited about seeing that lovely splash of yellow. Have a wonderful Easter Hetty.

Interesting photo's.
I like the dandelion flower.
Bought some leaves in the store.
Waiting for our dandelion leaves to start sprouting.
Have a great Easter.

So glad that in all your excitement you didn't fall off your scooter. That would have been bad. But having spring come is very exciting.

Good thing all the planes passed at a different time, but I'm sure the contrails were miles apart anyway. Nice quilting. I've never tried it. - Margy

Yes, the weather has been very nice. I haven't seen my first dandelion yet. Maybe tomorrow! I love the colours in the quilt block.

That's a very early dandelion. I have not spotted one here. The belong to my favorite flowers though almost anyone consider them as weed. I have a dandelion as my avatar on my blog.
Happy Easter!
