Tulips......

.....in the snow?

Huh ??!?

Tulips in the snow - april27,2010 002

After the tease of a few weeks of glorious weather - warm, sunny with just a sprinkling of rain - the enemy has entered the camp again.

Temps dropped to below zero (that's below 32) and....

.....

it's......

snowing!

And just in time for Black and White Wednesday.

As snow is white and my mood is black.

Hey....I like to match!


the long road

Poor little blades of grass, desperately trying to breath.

Boxwoods....without a coat on. I shudder!

But my garden is of tough stock. It will survive (and the forecast is in the 60's tomorrow and sunny). So my sweet tulips might limp and suffer but they will rise to greet a new day.

Ahhh.....one stalwart soldier, daring to laugh at the wind and snow.

Happy Wednesday Y'all.

Saw it plastered on FB about the snow in Montreal. If it makes you feel better, it was cold and rainy and so windy today. I know I will see some trees uprooted tomorrow. :(

Nice photos though! :)

We got the same thing! But it was 30 inches this past Friday & Saturday! So wish winter would go!!

Great pictures!!

Briana's Mom said...

Go away snow! Well, at least it made for some really pretty pictures! It actually was chilly today in GA - what is going on? Should be back on track for a pretty spring day tomorrow.

Katy said...

The weather is also teasing us here in California. One day its 75 and the next its windy and rainy! Glad to see your beautiful flowers are surviving! Great photos!

Snow! Shucks...I guess I should stop my whining about the rain. Hang in there lovely pink tulip!

I can't believe this spring weather! We just had a crazy storm pass through here and then just as the sun was to set, it came out. Love tulips and your pictures are just beautiful!

Frau said...

Gorgeous B&W's! Mother nature is right up there with Uncle Sam! It's a love hate thing! Hope today is sunny and warm.

It was very windy in Georgia yesterday! Guess we all got some of it. Your pics are gorgeous. Hope it gets better for you soon. Have a great day.

Friends of ours just south of the lake from y'all got 12 inches. Ugh. Hope it melts and you don't have to shovel.

The weather this year sure has been crazy. Spring has been late in coming this year to our neck of the woods and the weather we've been having lately is more like the tail-end of winter... has been for months now. And summer is just around the corner! Spring got lazy this year.

Lisa said...

Oh sNOw!! Well, the only way I could stand it was that you shared better weather coming your way for today! You deserve every bit of those sunny skies and 60's.....what a fickle Mama Nature!!

The photos are gorgeous, just gorgeous!!

I love the tulips...but not in snow!! I saw that on the news this morning and was actually surprised it wasn't us ;) I do not wish it on anyone else though either. Hope it melts fast!!

Christy said...

Crazy! Glad the sun is coming back! Great photos!

In my hometown (and most likely elsewhere) they call spring snow "the poor man's fertilizer" because as long as there's no frost, it can actually be helpful. Not so fun for those of us who are more than ready for spring, though! I am wearing socks and corduroys today, and really wishing it could be sandals and shorts!

Marla said...

What the heck? That is not right!! Crazy winter, go away for good!!!

Beautiful photos though, I hope about now that you're back to enjoying some pretty sunshine.

Have a wonderful week..... I got your email late last night. Yes, we will catch up later this month or next month...... whenever you are ready, you let me know:)

Life with Kaishon said...

I went to college in Clarks Summit. I don't know if you know where that is but I could not believe this morning when they wee saying they woke up to SNOW! Isn't it time for that to go far away? : ) I heard it is going to be 80 this weekend. Crazy, right?
Lovely images.

Ellie said...

poor little tulips! pretty photos though! I love the burst of color in the last one, it seems to be saying, yes WINTER IS GONE! - I'm wishing you sunshine and flowers :)

Gail said...

Yeah, you gotta love(not) where we live Wanda...can't seem to make up it's mind whether it's Spring or Winter still.

Love this post and the beautiful pics too, my gardening friend. :)

Love Letters To China said...

Oh Wanda... I hope the sun popped its beautiful head out once again to warm your lovely tulips. I can't say we're experiencing anything like you have up in Canada. We have the opposite going on here. One day in the 90's and the next in the 70's. Crazy!!!

Love your pictures!
