Spring in Minnesota

Well, my wishes for a snow day came true!  Here are a couple of shots of the view from the deck at 10:00 this morning.

Though it's hard to tell, it is still snowing and blowing, and we have several inches of snow on the ground.

I guess it was a little overly optimistic of me to put out lawn chairs already.  Spring in Minnesota is so unpredictable.  While others around the country are posting pictures of lovely flowers in bloom, I'm just getting excited about perennials finally waking from their winter slumber.   I try to rationalize living here by believing that the long, cold winter only makes the spring and summer that much more sweet, but in reality, I'd love to be sitting outside in 70 degree weather in March.  Heck, I'd even take 50!  C'est la vie.  Another day to stay inside and dream of spring flowers to come.

  1. Billy Jo, I don't know how people way up north can cope. Winter can't end soon enough. Playing with the cold frames helped me to cope with the winter blahs. To be eating fresh greens two months ahead of time is a tremendous bonus. George
