Last weekend was Seedy Sunday. Jill Bishop is the mastermind of this great event. She and Peter Hughes (both pictured above) help co-ordinate The Peterborough Community Garden Network. Jill also runs the Wednesday Farmers’ Market in downtown Peterborough.
I showed up at Seedy Sunday early and it was already packed. People everywhere, shopping for seeds, exchanging garden stories, dreaming of spring.
The day of Seedy Sunday was very spring like, but less than 24 hours later it got cold again. And snowed.
My favourite place below the dam was looking seriously bleak.
But also beautiful.
Amazing abstract shapes.
But I can’t leave you with that almost monochromatic scene of winter’s slowly approaching end. Instead, above, I leave you with Maple Syrup and root veg (the spoils of winter), and another glimpse of seeds.
Oh, I’m too, too eager for the warmer weather.
Can you tell?
