    1. Thanks. I don't really mind. This is pretty normal around here for March. :<)

    1. Nope. But still pretty to one who loves snow. Good thing I do. :<)

    1. I know. It is still cold enough for the snow to stay. By next month these snows will disappear quickly. Wanted to tell you I got the Holland skating book from the library. It looks lovely.

  4. Looks perfect to me! ~ and I daresay my St. Bernards would agree!
    Happy First Day of Spring to you!

    1. Thank you. I can barely see the tree in the photo right now because it is snowing so hard. I did hear the word sun in the forecast so we'll see. :<)

  6. Yea, I know how you feel! No snow over here, but had to switch the heating on at 2.00 as it got so cold again. I want to feel the warm stuff on my head, on my arms, on my hands - Come ON Spring! Burst forth!

  7. Glad to see you posting again, Nan! I missed you! (But also understand the need for breaks!!) Our first day of spring is also exceedingly white and cold -- flakes flying now, it is sticking to the 6 inches of snow we have gotten in the past 2 days. We will see spring in late April if we are lucky.

    1. Thank you. We've had snow even in late April. But not too often. My snow tire rule is off May 1!

  8. The snow looks so pretty on that tree in the foreground, lovely with the sun on it. I still think snow is magical, I suppose we don't have enough here for the excitement to have worn off!
    An item on the news today said that the hibernating animals were having a very hard time with such a late, cold spring here in the U.K. Apparently they will have used up all their stored body fat and it's still too cold for them to venture out. My body fat is intact but it is too cold for me to venture too.

    1. That crabapple is ancient, and has made a few appearances here during 'apple blossom time.' That is really awful about the animals. But you are very funny.

  9. Nan, it looks like spring isn't arriving today despite what the calendar says. Hang in there. It will spring into your life before you know it.

    1. March is almost always still wintry around here no matter what the calendar says.

  10. Yes, much different from my photo today! How much snow did you get? We're supposed to get some over the next three days. Annie has her paws crossed. She loves the cold, snowy weather!

    1. 6 or 7 inches. It is beautiful today with the bright sun on the bright snow.

    1. yes, it was unnaturally warm last year. I like this better. Really.

  13. LOL!!!! That's pretty much our view here in Ottawa. After our big snow fall on Tuesday, we are now getting flurries almost every day. And it's cold. Barely above zero. I think rather than give in to despair (which I can do too easily at this time of year, waiting for spring), I am going to curl up with a good book or three this weekend and thumb my nose at winter! It is beautiful, but I want some green things growing now, please.....

    1. Once the temps go up a bit, that snow will melt quickly!

  14. Winter's been long at your house! So many people here are getting ready to leave so that they'll be "up north" by Easter....they're going to get a little taste of the Winter they missed!

    1. Tom's parents always come back in early April. I wonder if they will be greeted by snow.
