The Best Thing About Spring in Calgary
What’s the best thing about Spring in Calgary?
It might be gardening. We’re indeed digging away at C.I.A. - I’m sure you’ve read our post on planting your first garden in Calgary. And… look at MY babies! (See below. I had to show someone. Thanks for caring). They’re being planted this weekend.
What about biking? I’ve been back on my bicycle for weeks now, which for car-free-me means my world has exploded and I can reach far-away things (like Montreal bagels at Elbow & Heritage – this weekend). The chorus of tail pipes in my neighbourhood suggests that those other types of bikers are happy to be out too.
Exposed skin? Yep. Put away those parkas and pantyhose! This city is so whack with the weather that when it is finally warm out, we all deserve to take the sundress or muscle shirt to the max.
However, if I had to pick the single best thing about Spring in Calgary, I would pick the CANADA GOSLINGS. Seriously. Check out this flock of fluffies I encountered on the shore of the Elbow yesterday:
I admit I was surprised to learn from the City of Calgary that geese are a “problem,” in a number of ways (Geese attacks! Calgarians slipping on geese excrement!). But the goslings make it all worth it. Here’s wishing that you all get to see some soon.
