Snow Happens!




All you gardeners...me included...snow happens!  Temp this morning was 27 F but felt wonderful as there was no wind and we got over 2 inches of the wet white crystal stuff. I cannot help but be thrilled at this late winter beauty even though all that was green is covered in white and all of my blooming bulbs are subdued under heavy wet covers and all my perennials I purchased from the catalog are in the ground hiding somewhere.  But, if I go with the flow, live one day at a time, I can just smile at this loveliness.





Everything looks so fresh and new...except for the poor wild persimmon blossoms down by the river that have been forced to do some weightlifting.

There certainly is something magical about snow on bright blooms.

What a beautiful surprise. We really aren't in control of anything are we> ;-)

Beauty can be cruel but still it's worth noticing. I like the idea of taking what comes from nature as what it is, not something we are dedicating to controlling :)

The Johnny Jump Up looks especially lovely with its sugar coating of snow.
We woke up to 13º yesterday but no snow. We last had that on Friday afternoon. There's been a very cold wind blowing lately. The bright sunshine today is lovely to watch from the warmth of the house.
Your snowy trees reflected in the river make a beautiful scene.
I hope those snowy persimmon blossoms have lost their heavy load by now and that sunshine is warming your garden.

All the images are top shots, but the one of the trees beyond water is a real knockout of an image. Love it!

Spring continues to be yanked out from under us. We didn't get more snow but we did get freezing temperatures back right after we had enjoyed a few days of warmth and sunshine. It is so crazy but yes, it is beautiful. Your pictures are phenomenal.

I've always loved a spring snow...
but this year is different in that we are still dealing with hard drifts and deep snow.
But yes, this has no doubt happened before and I have forgotten in my desire to see blooms and green ands sun
