It's certainly not feeling like spring in the YEG right now, but we can only hope that this snow will have a very short life and will bring green grass, budding trees and sunny skies soon after. So in May with graduations, weddings and summer vacations around the corner, let's take the time to enjoy watching our winter city blossom into it's sweet summer self.

Look Up: Make sure you take a walk through Churchill Square sometime this month to take in the adorable Tree Houses hidden throughout the trees in the centre of town. These tiny houses will delight anyones inner child, and we have a sneaking suspicion they look even cuter, when you're holding an ice-cream cone.
