Cruel April

I had planned to show you photos of spring today. But no!

Instead we have this:

Driving home yesterday evening around 6 p.m.

Snow and ice covering that dark green grass.

Fields that should be turning emerald are white.

Grumble. Grumble. It came down in big, fat flakes.

And it came down as icy little pellets.

Down it came. Snow and ice.

Covering springtime all up again in a winter's white coat.

Leaving her mark.

Alas, forsythia, I don't know what to tell you. Perhaps hold the blooms for another week?


  1. On the brightside...the snow has left the building. On the has taken many of my plum and peach blossoms with it.

  2. Poor Little Miss Forsythia. Her yellow skirt is not looking so good right now.

  3. Ah, that sucks! April can indeed be cruel. Glad that went south of me--we still haven't gotten rid of all the mountains of snow, though at least we can now see the ground in spots.

  4. I was hoping that THIS would be the year I finally got a decent crop off my fruit trees! We shall see.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
