YOU'LL NEVER GUESS!

     I had snow again. My mind has been blank on good post topics lately so the snow came and gave me one of my easy topics.

     Fresh snow is fairly normal at  this time. We may be getting more than usual this spring.

     Our days become very long so plants develop rapidly and reach maturity before the fall. Right now the sun rises at 6:20 and sets at 8:48 for 14 hours and 28 minutes of daylight.

     New blades of grass poking out of the snow.  The types of grass we plant are able to withstand these conditions.

     
  
     The view on my street this morning.

     A rather peaceful looking dwelling.

  
     My blue bells are doing well at the side of my house . The snow didn't hit this area.


     I have seen times when these blue bells have been covered with snow but they are not harmed.

  2. I bet you're eager for warm weather, like most everyone else. Still cold and rainy here in Portland.

    1. There is a middle between the two extremes. I'd choose the middle.

  3. Mother Nature is helping you out with your blog posts, Red. And I'm glad it's where YOU live and not here. We are having more, you guessed it: rain. :-)

    1. Well, I would really have to change to live in the rain. I visit Vancouver once in awhile and I don't like the rain.

  4. You sound resigned to spring snow. I guess you might as well find the beauty of it.

    1. We know that it can happen at this time of year. If it was an extreme it wouldn't be nice.

    1. It's not uncommon to get snow at this time. On the other hand, five years ago it was 25 C.

  8. Isn't that "peaceful looking dwelling" the home of a mass murderer - driven crazy by the endless Albertan winter?

    1. The mass murderer is only killing poor little snowflakes.

  11. Bluebells are so pretty. I hope the snow and winter weather will hurry up and go away. We've had strange weather- this morning it is 42...just when I thought I could pull my capris out, I am having to dig out my sweaters again.

  15. Your bluebells definitely look like a different species from our bluebells. More snow! Argh!

    1. Plants are developed for different zones of frost free days. So stuff we have develops quickly.

    1. You're right. There's lots of nitrogen in heavy wet snow!

  19. Saw some snow on our Colorado trip a few weeks ago and it was really fun having the contrast.

  20. I hear they're getting a foot or more in Colorado this weekend, so you have plenty of company.

  22. I hope your snow stays in your area -- I'm enjoying warm weather and lots of green.

  23. I guess even the plants have to be sturdier there. It seems like everything dies even during a short period of frost.
