You appear to have a drop of snow there.
Just like I have here.
Looks like our Spring! Sigh… 🙂
Yes, all looks very similar here! I’ve also got a little moggy who sits and looks at the snow outside.
So sad. 😦
Not more snow – when is it going to stop!
I’ve just been looking at your lovely botanical paintings, Helen. I expect that’s what you are doing this afternoon! (There’s always a plus to bad weather!)
You are kind, I havent done any painting since last October lost my confidence and didnt enjoy the classes any more. Thinking about doing some sketching as I enjoy it more than watercolour which is so hard
Oh most frustrating isn’t it? A cold wind here too – made it as far as the greenhouse this afternoon but no further.
The only thing I have done is make paths in the snow to try and work out what to do with the lawn – real mess out there now!!
I have to admit the vieuws of your garden with snow are beautiful. But it would be better when it were photo’s of December. Spring is on the corner but I think it has a bad GPS. It can’t find our country’s.
Have a wonderful sunday Helen.
We’re expecting snow today and tomorrow. When will it end, oh Lord, when will it end?
It certainly has been a white winter, and I’m impatiently awaiting a green spring and summer.
One of the wonderful elements of being involved in the blog community is that it is spring somewhere and it is shared…
Indeed Helen 🙂
I believe snow brings important minerals to the garden.
OK you have been getting my weather after it leaves here…a foot of new snow this week. Spring is just not coming yet.
It must be so depressing for you. I theatre even nere in Italy we ha e hai snow in March but never as heavy as that. If it helps we have a whole week of rain forecast and not even warm, but temperatures back below zero at night. C
Sitting here looking through last years March/April gardening magazines just to remind myself what should be happening !
Crumbs. We’re not so far from you but have completely escaped any snow here ( saw just a few tiny flakes drifting down this morning ). Wind, wind and wind is our lot at the moment. Hope your snow melts soon – and we all see some proper springlike weather soon too!
My garden in Pennsylvania looks pretty much the same as yours; it snowed last night and through the day today. Fortunately, temperatures are just above freezing, so it should all melt in a day or two. This weather pattern is getting very old; last year at this time, we had daytime temperatures in the 70s (F) and spring bulbs and flowering trees were a riot of color. They are promising us normal temperatures (55F) by the weekend; I think many of my plants are just waiting for that encouragement to bloom.
The other day I walked past a decorated shop window and saw some lovely Christmas baubles. It took me a while to realise that those were not Christmas baubles, but decorated Easter eggs hanging in the shop window…
It’s much the same when I look out the window; it looks like a pretty Christmas scene, but I’d really like to see less snow (or even – dare I dream – NO snow) and more plants beginning to grow.
your cat is, singularly, NOT impressed. It is hard to look at that when you are thinking – Spring? Where are you?
