A snow day.............

We have had a few days of melting snow and then yesterday the snow came down with big flakes for a couple hours.  The roads melted off quickly and it is supposed to be 60 and rain by Tuesday.  This looked like the snowman building type of snow the way it built up on all of the tree branches and on this Rose of Sharon bush outside my kitchen window.  Our previous snows were light and fluffy because it was so cold when it snowed.
My inside garden is still blooming though and froggy is taking care of my orange cactus.  The one on top of the desk is blooming too but my photo was blurry so I can't show it.





My favorite pink one has a bloom and a bud ready to open soon plus some more buds on the other side that will open later in the week.

There are only 10 more days left in February so I had better choose a quilt top to finish into a quilt before the deadline.

for us this upcoming week will be rain, rain and more rain - more than we want by next week it will be a soggy muddy mess keeping me from wandering the yard for several weeks. I would rather have a good snow fall and let it melt slowly

We has a beautiful snowfall yesterday morning but it all melted by this morning and rain is expected several times this coming week. Our weather alternates from 65 to 32, several times each week.

It looks like a beautiful snowfall. That pink cactus has such a pretty flower.

We had our first snow of the year last we. It was just like yours clinging to the trees and looking like a winter wonderland. I remember thinking that if I wasn't in my 70's with an aching back I would have built a snowman . . . maybe 70 wouldn't even matter if my back didn't hurt, LOL. I think we are being teased a little bit before Spring brings us warmer days :)

SNOW ! and more snow.... out here. That's what we get for bragging about our warm temps in January. An arctic front is to hit Monday and Tuesday. Highs in the teens if we are lucky. I hope you get your 60 degrees by Tuesday.

Enjoyed seeing mr. froggy and cactus blossoms.
