April Showers Bring.......Frozen Flowers

Yesterday we woke to some pretty crazy weather. We had almost an inch of snow in the morning and throughout the day it continued to rain, hail and snow.


My poor little herb garden was just beginning to show good things to eat. See the chives all bent down now? And I have two bunches of oregano that totally are covered in snow here.


Here is my rosemary bush and you can't see my lemon balm, rhubarb or sage at all. They were just beginning to show their little faces. Given some sunny days and this little spot will look so much different.

Poor little icy tulips wanting to bloom. Mean mother nature....

Holy Cow! Are you sure those aren't pics from like February?? WOW! I can't remember EVER having snow this late in the spring. Hope your plants don't die or get frostbite. So does that mean the kids are all saying, "Snow, snow - go away - come again another day!" ? Haha! Hope everything else is going well in your neck of the woods. Much love to you & yours, take care and God Bless

Oh, too bad about the late snow. Are those real hyacinths there in the galvanized pot? They look kind of cute topped with globs of snow!

I hope your weather improves soon. The farmers are pining for sunshine and dry days here in Iowa.

It looks funny to see snow and a beutiful pool together. You have a great looking pool there!

Hope the flowers aren't hurt by the late snow. I guess you wish Mother Nature would make up her mind! The baked Ziti looks delicious!

I think that's more snow than I have seen in my life. I bet your tulips are going to be beautiful and Don't you love the way hyacinths smell. We can't grow them reliably here :( But sometimes I buy them in pots already blooming. :)
