  1. Mornin' Linda - the snow either hasn't reached us yet or went past us. We have had steady rain all night with huge winds. Big change, for sure. I'm in today and making pie crust for the Easter dessert. And cleaning....always cleaning. Hope your weather changes soon. We need nice weather for the weekend. Good Friday always seems to be rainy, though.

    1. We have about 6 Robins hanging around here...chasing each other around!
      Perhaps some nest building soon!

  4. I think our rain is starting to turn a little icy here too. Forecast is for a bit of snow but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Your cardinal looks like he is complaining to the little metal bird :) But your tulip header gives us hope.
    Enjoy the day what ever it brings.

  6. Great photos
    The snow there looks lovely but I'd rather have the warm sunny weather - we are just starting to get it - so I am about to cut the back lawn and do some tidying up in the garden.

  8. Oh now that is just too annoying ! We are just having high winds and rain. Which gives me a good excuse to stay inside and bake or do something cozy .. the kitten is napping .. I might try that too !
    It will soon be spring and then summer and snow will be a dim memory. like all my memories lol

  9. I was thinking about you this morning when I went on fb and saw the Patty and Abe in Ohio had a new storm...wondering if you got it too. Yep..Mother Nature is getting it our of her system, I guess.
    The pictures are certainly beautiful, and thinking you should make a "bird calendar" like Betsy's "cat calendar". Sending WARM hugs and BIG smiles.

  10. Hey Linda - your hippy dippy weather girl here...snow is now swirling around outside our window just 40 minutes west of Ottawa. Ice pellets just finished up in time to make driving a mess. The wind is insane and I'm inside for the day. Our indoor/outdoor cat just came in after a pee in the snow and wants me to put her photo up on Pet-finder for all the California cat-lovers to have a look-see at adopting her. Actually, if they would like to adopt her owner that is fine, too.

    1. Ha! I knew it would blow your way!!
      Your cat stories always crack me up, Deb! You have such a great sense of humour♥️

  11. Oh my goodness more snow! We haven't had so much as 1 flake this winter so I doubt we'll have any now (although I do remember one snowy Easter when the builder insisted it was fine for a cricket match!)
    Stay warm and safe Linda :-)

  12. I'm right behind you Linda. Even I think it is high time Mother Nature give us a break already. I have Oriental Poppies a couple of inches high and buds on my weeping cherry. If they get frost bite, Mother Nature just may be hearing my wrath!!!

    At least the birds in your yard look like they are fairing well, (great shots btw:) we had a few robins "dancing" yesterday but all is quiet outside awaiting the snow:( I covered the poppies with blankets. Fingers crossed...

    1. Hope your Poppies are safe...I only have tulips,daffodils and day lilies...which will be fine!
      The wind is still gusty...WTH!!

  13. Yep. Same here. Still snowing even now into the late afternoon.

    We had the air on this weekend and the heat on today.

  17. You got way more snow than we did. It was pouring when we woke up and did change over to ice pellets and wet snow by mid morning but none of the snow accumulated. Love the vivid red of the cardinal.

  22. Don't know what it looks like outside now, but this morning we had a cold rain that turned to wet snow. I'm hoping this is the last of it. I didn't bother to take any pictures.

  24. Sorry. I hope it ended soon. I remember when we lived on the NY side of the lake, we had snow on May 18 one year. It was exactly a week before our wedding and I was scared.
