April Fooled Me After All

What a wonderful surprise! Both Princess and I just love the snow and even though I feel sorry about the reduced odds for lilac and daffodil blooms, I'm so happy that Princess is having so much fun. She's getting old and she is tired, so I worry about her. That's why I took her out alone with me early so she could get a good roll in the snow and have special time with her mommy. She was so happy! I was too!
While she was playing, I checked the trees that I posted such spring-like photos of the other day. This is what they looked like this morning:  The tree above, is the one with the big leaf buds. Now the buds are enclosed in ice, but they'll be OK.
But the lilac bush…..OUCH! I wonder what will happen to the blossoms now.
And here's my baby cottonwood tree -- full of icicles!
I had planned to hike up the hill this morning, to take a look at all the different kinds of yellow spring flowers that started to bloom on the hillside up there. I guess the spring flowers will have to wait for another day.
I thought it was going to be slush, but instead it was cold, with the snow glittering in the sun, and making those wonderful crunchy noises underfoot, as we walked up the snow-covered road.
Thanks for visiting; I hope you enjoyed this spring surprise as much as we did.


  1. OjOj. vilken snö ni har fått. men det blir riktigt vitt och fint.
    Hunden verkar älska det så den blev nog några år yngre av snön :o)
    Ja då vet jag när du fyller år ochså. H
    Jag får nog skriva upp det:o)

    Ha det riktigt gott

  2. And, that is why I'm holding off planting, much as I want to. We could still have a good, hard frost.

    Your pictures are beautiful, and I'm glad that you and Princess got to enjoy the snow. It's worrisome when our animals get older, but it makes every minute we have with them much more precious.

  3. So pretty, all we got was more rain and red mud... Henry won't stay in the house so we have red muddy white floors now too. Even Wally had mud packed in the webs of his paws... I know the growers need the rain but......


Thanks for leaving a comment.. ~~ Inger
