I've been trying something over the last little while: Every day, or at least when I can remember to do so, I take a screen capture of webcam that we at CBC have pointed at the harbour. The camera is mounted on the top floor of The Rooms, and looks to the downtown area, the Narrows, Signal Hill and so on.
It's been a good period to try this, as there were no leaves when I started, and now things actually look pretty green ... and getting lusher as the days pass.
That doesn't mean it's warm, mind you. It's been quite cool, if not near-freezing, lately ... but it's spring, and it's St. John's. I'm, unfortunately, used to it.
Here's a slideshow of the work in progress. You can see the collection on my Flickr stream; I hope to keep this going, especially as the seasons change.
