I can't begin to explain how fed up I am with the weather this winter. I have been praying for an early spring for a month now. Today, I thought my prayers had been answered.
It was a beautiful sunny day and the temperature was so nice I only needed a light sweater to take my camera for a walk around the yard.
I was delighted to find I had daffodils sprouting with some ready to bud,
and crocuses that were about ready to open up.
Then tonight, (early today, actually) I opened the back door to let the cat out and discovered
hugh, fat, fluffy snow flakes falling from the sky.
Will this darn winter never go away? Will all of my hard work getting these bulbs in the ground be ruined by this darn snow? Will spring ever get here?
It is now about eight hours since the above photos were taken and the snow is still falling. . Everything is covered in about two inches of white. The city snow plows just went down our street. No children have passed in front of our house on their way to the school down the block and the latest weather report says to expect about three more inches of snow before evening. Following are a couple shots only mintues old taken out our front door.
