With spring taking so many long weeks to show up, it's time to take matters into our own hands and add colour into our own lives somehow! This mural in Ottawa is sure to add a bright splash of colour to your Instagram page. As of today, things are looking up temperature wise (bless). According to The Weather Network, we're expecting double-digit weather in the next few days (finally).
Now, this better be our final welcome to spring weather. We are all super tired of seeing snow fall from the sky and ice cover everything. How is it that in mid-April Ottawan's are able to skate down the street?! It's time for us to get into the spring of things once again and hopefully this time it's here to stay. The first step we can all do is head outside and find this mural while embracing the double-digit temperatures that are soon to come.
