Montreal is well-known for it's winters that drag on forever.
And even though it's officially spring now, I hadn't yet seen the proof.
So I went looking for it...
And guess what?
Turns out spring is here,
you just need to look down... way down... and you'll see the first signs.
Even the robins have returned to the Montreal area.... so I guess that's objective proof that spring is here. You can't argue with robins.
And the sap is running from the trees (more definitive proof!)
So I rest my case.
It may still feel like winter, but there's no doubting this evidence.
Spring has undoubtedly arrived.
Now, back to my weekend.
I spent Saturday night with my parents out in the country. We went to a local small-town cinema... which is not a cinema at all, but a cafe converted into a cabaret-style performance hall equipped with a projector. It was such a charming environment. They served deliciously buttered popcorn and we drank wine at our little cafe tables while watching Incendies. (The movie itself was a little disturbing, but incredibly done. No surprise it won best foreign language film at the oscars).
And finally my mother and I invented this raspberry & lemon tart, and it was so good that we ate the whole thing, and there was nothing left over to bring back for the husband (sorry, dear!)
I hope you had a wonderful weekend too.
