April Foolishness

Well, if the snow had come on April 1st, we would have laughed a little more.  But here on April 3rd, it is soooo not funny!  The poor daffodils were caught off guard and the temperature plunge back into the 20's and then into the teens is not what we had in mind after the 60 - 70 degree days of last week.

The high winds are bringing down alot of dead branches that we are using in the woodstove, keeping us nice and warm through this early spring freeze.  The birds are confused, and I did not hear a peep out of the spring peepers last night. I hope they burrowed down deep into the leaves in the woods to survive, for their sounds were the true welcoming of Spring.

Whether the weather be fine,
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot,
We'll weather the weather
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not!

  1. Hi Vicki! In Chicago yesterday we had it all. Sun, rain, snow, sleet, hail and high winds. Crazy!! My daffodils took a beating too, but they seem okay today. Just high winds have stayed on for another day.
    Yes, the weather will always be with us, and doesn't seem to care what we think about it :)

  2. You had more snow than we did. We had just a dusting that blew away by noon.

  3. love the heart resting in the branch. :) yes, april can be a cruel month for those in the northern areas. :)

  4. We had the same situation earlier this week with snow on our crocuses. That heart is just wonderful!!! Thanks so much for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro ♥
