Snow is so pretty - in pictures.
We only have one month, July, that is reliably snow free. Snow in Aug is rare, but last year we got a dusting the last week.
I continue to be amazed at our different climates. I spent the afternoon weeding and checking to see what is starting to bloom.
I'll see my crocus in maybe 50 days.....
Your seen stirs a memory of a fireplace, chili on the stove, basketball on TV and a delight that I didn't need to go anywhere or do anything. The trouble is the next chapter of that memory, the next morning when the work week arrived meaning one needed to venture into that hostile climate.
Yep, remember the going out the door and off to the airport well. Now, a nap after late breakfast is the norm.
Where are your snowdrops? crocuses? forsythia? Oh right.. probably the same place as the ones I'd prefer seeing in the morning.
Still under a foot or two of snow......
I hope you're feeling the promise in your bones. I'm beginning to.XOWWW
I'm too old, crabby and cynical to be fooled by sun in March.
You make keep it to yourself, this late in the season. I hope to sleep apnea is resolving.
Seems to have somewhat resolved, my friend visiting says.....
Keep up a good front. It is on its way.
Late May or early June for full fledged spring is the norm. My lilac bush blooms 2nd week of June on 'normal' years.
Things like this make me feel guilty for living in the land of perpetually mild weather.
