According to the calendar, spring arrived a couple of days ago. So did more more snow – about 15 cm (6 inches) fell overnight.
Instead of walking around wearing cute shoes….
I’m still wearing my winter boots – not to mention a parka, a hat and mittens.
Around here, snow this late in the season isn’t totally unusual. We had a storm about the same time last year that dropped over 20 cm on the ground (I remember this is because we’d just come back from a week in California where it was 75 F and sunny everyday). But this year, the freezing temperatures arrived in late November and stayed until a couple of weeks ago, when the temperature climbed above the freezing mark for a couple of days. It’s been up and down like a roller coaster since then.
While I’m dreaming of spring flowers…
My garden is still fast asleep under a deep layer of white
Even the birds have decided to find somewhere else to spend the day.
There is one flower in the garden – lonely and just a little chilly
March is supposed to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb. There are still 9 more days until the end of the month, but so far, the lions are showing no sign of leaving.
