Oh, those dandelions

There is something about dandelions, no matter how some of us might loathe them, they can still brighten up a field. They're so bright, you'd think they would glow in the dark. The Cape Breton Living Webcam (photo below) shows the dandelions appearing like sunny yellow buttons dotting the green grass in the field. I suppose it won't be long now  this little yellow flower (or weed) will turn into seed and we'll be blowing the seeds into the wind and making a wish...

Webcam update

For the past few months, on the Cape Breton Living website, we've been showing only one camera which was overlooking east at the ponds, hills and houses. As of yesterday, the camera has been moved to overlook south-west at the shore, wharf and the ocean. Eventually, hopefully soon, 2 cameras will be up and running again at the same time so everyone can view either the east view or the west view in real time. Till then, I hope you enjoy the view whichever way it's facing!

On the Cape Breton Living website

This week we finally got to see some sun after a couple of weeks of miserable fog and rain. I wasn't really complaining, but when the day is bright, sunny and warm, people are out and about in a cheerful and uplifting kind of a way... The community comes to life!

Today on the webcams

What is it that when it's a bright and sunny day in Cape Breton, it makes one want to write and tell the world about it! It's not quite the warmest day so far this spring and I'm sure there's warmer days to come, but since I haven't written anything in a while, today's sunny day gave me a reason to post a shot of the webcams. We are now the 16th of June and if you look closely, you'll see that the leaves are still not fully opened on the shrubs. But no worry, soon enough, the trees and shrubs will be full and green and the breeze will be soft and warm. So be sure to check the webcams often to see the changes for yourself.

Although today the wind was a bit cool, it was a great day for drying the clothes on the line. I don't mean to sound negative, but one thing I despise is when the wind blows in just that certain direction and crazy way and the clothes on the line end up twisted and curled around the clothesline. Today is one of those days. Well the clothes did dry in no time and they do have that nice fresh spring scent...

On the webcam this morning

At 6:30am this morning, I was blessed with the most beautiful sunrise, a bright red and orange sky. My first thoughts were that's great, maybe Cape Beton will be spared from the snow and ice pellets that has been forecasted for today. But only minutes later, the sky turned dull. Looks like the weather folks might be right. For the last few days around here on the southeastern shore of Cape Breton we've been getting beautiful spring weather with temperatures of 7-10 celcius. Right now it's 0 celcius, windy and cloudy. Here is a clip of the text forecast from Evironment Canada for this area:
