Spring or No Spring?

 The snow is gone the snow is gone!!  Or is it?

The poor chickens had such a rough winter.  Poor Florio, despite a heat lamp and some protective vasoline, he still lost part of his comb.  This photo was taken earlier this winter.

This was taken right after the first of MANY snow storms.  It's comparatively shallow at this point.

But at long last!!  This is the last of the enormous build-up of snow!  In this particular spot it got up to four feet high!

But last week...just a little remains.  And this week...all gone!!  Yay!!  This past weekend I was able to dig up some parsnips that had overwintered in the garden for our Passover feast!

The cement kitty and succulents can't wait to come back to life!

But then...last night...Ben let Winnie outside after falling asleep on the couch.  He came back in and asked me if he had slept through all of the spring, summer, and fall.  I was confused.  Then he told me to look outside. 


Ugh...  I woke up this morning hoping it had been a dream.  Nope.  It is really pretty though.  Right?

So crazy to get snow in April! We are fully into spring now here. Trees leafed out, things flowering and truly one of the prettiest times of the year! I will send some spring your way!
