The Lion Never Showed as March Left Lake Erie

Well I did not get any shots until after April actually arrived. However, we all know the March Lion did not show. We are having a wonderful welcome of warm weather and more plentiful sunshine than usual, very Lamb-like. No one can say we did not have a 2010 Spring Season.

This bird was singing away, perched in the budding tree (a sure sign of the very mild, almost too warm for this time of year days we have had recently). The tree is just outside the Beach House.I know we are ALL enjoying this wonderful weather, however the grape growers are very concerned. Buds on vines this early is NOT a good thing. There is way too much time left for frost and we always have at least one snow storm around the 15th of April.

Here are the same daffodils from earlier posts, in full bloom. What a beautiful sight!!!

We opened our patios on Friday and had ample guests enjoying the wonderful weather. I never got a chance to catch a shot of the people enjoying Lake Erie at Her finest. If you have enjoyed our patios, you can get the visual, I am sure.
Here is a wonderful sunset from Saturday evening.
We hosted a local family Brunch this Easter Sunday. The menu consisted of Quiche Lorraine, Orange-pecan Baked French Toast, Veggie Strata, bacon, sausage, fruit salad, lemon danish, blueberry muffins and raspberry cheese coffee cake.

The lake was awesome, flat and a gorgeous blue with again, magnificent sunshine. There was a chill in the air, however. If it was not for the chill, it would have been wonderful to have the group sit outside admiring Mother Nature at Her very best. There is ZERO evidence of ice, What a beautiful thing!!! The children were able to at least go down to the beach. I shot this video last evening, the sound we have been waiting for since the Lake froze...

Are we too confident that the weather will hold? Sam is taking the snowblower to storage.
