Is this a joke?


So you have heard me go on and on lately about freshly mowed grass and daffodils and chirp- ping robins and planting flower seeds. Well, then yesterday happened. Well on our way to a gorgeous spring and we get hit with a winter wonderland. Sitting at the table, having dinner we watched the the snow flakes start to fall fast and hard. In a matter of an hour we literally had two inches of snow on the ground. So we bundled Anniebelle up and headed outside, along with the rest of the neighborhood to gawk and play until it got dark. We woke up this morning, still shocked to discover several more inches of snow had fallen over night. It feels like it should be April Fools Day or something. So instead of planting the rest of the perennials I bought the other day I think we'll go our and make a snowman. As you can tell from this picture, Anniebelle finds it all very enchanting. Glad somebody does. It really is beautiful and truthfully her excitement over random snowstorms does rub off on me a little.

Hey, sounds like ND weather. We are loving spring, but you never know when a miscelaneous snow shower will arrive. Enjoy the snowmen and snow angels. And I hope your flowers survive this little surprise from mother nature.

that is *too* funny! and yes, it was a joke. on a cosmicly ironic scale. you know, i think i'll start paying attention to the winter storm warnings on my google... i didn't believe the one yesterday that was for here, and *something* (i'm still in denial) fell on us during our walk today. i didn't believe the one for silverdale either, but clearly, i should be calling my brother...

Oh, your poor daffs! But by Annabelle's expression, she is clearly enjoying it all. :-)

unreal! true spring will come soon enough. :) it's kind of a tricky, unexpected lesson in patience, don't you think?

such gorgeous snow...why is it that snow looks more beautiful at your house than mine! :)

What a simply classic picture of your Annabelle! Over the mountains and through the woods on the other side of the state, we certainly did *not* get as much snow ... it didn't even stick a little ... but it is so cold, wet, windy ... and cold. Sigh. Welcome Spring?
