It’s Not Spring Yet April 18, 2013

Although the calendar says it’s spring, our northern weather says it’s not! We are still getting hit with rounds of snow and sleet and the temps hover around the freezing mark. Ugh. My poor little Juncos have had to dig for their food.

As I write this, a frozen wintry mix is tapping at my window. At least the patches of grass peeking out from the snow are turning green, so there is hope! It certainly has not been warm enough for any spring flowers to poke their heads out of the ground yet. We need warm sunny days for that.

What’s coming up in your yard? Please share so I can dream of what’s to come. 🙂

  1. Ouch, Paula! Hope it melts soon and the warm winds of spring come your way. We just had temps in the 80’s today – too warm for the spring flowers!

      Wow, 80’s! I’m SO jealous. 😉 Can’t imagine it at the moment. I think I forgot what that feels like! LOL It’s still snowing this AM…the Spring that wasn’t. Have a great weekend.
