Wordless Wednesday

Do you suppose if we roll over and play dead, the snow will stop???

Sometimes, it pays to be late.

I Will Survive

Let's shed some color on this.

Can't keep a good grape hyacinth down.

Peekaboo!

Coming Up

White on White

brrrrrr

Ha ha!  You missed me!

Come on, Sister, I know you're under there somewhere!

Is it safe to come out yet???

    1. Thanks, Alycia! I haven't covered my plants yet because it hasn't started snowing yet. Fingers crossed... And yet, we SO need the moisture!

  2. Those are very pretty, with the flowers peeking out from the patterns of snow. Hope they make it through OK.

    1. They made it through that storm, Catsynth. Now, will they survive today's blanket of white???

  3. Sure signs that spring has sprung, even with the yucky white stuff still there.

    1. Spring sometimes takes a little longer to wake up in the Rockies, Pat. :) Can't really complain though. Oh, how we need the moisture.

  4. Wow, these are pretty, even if that white stuff is pushing it's way around all the lovely flowers, which by the way we haven't been that lucky to have even a tiny sprout up and being cradled by snow. They say we get more, yes this May Day, tonight and tomorrow, after all our snow finally left!

    1. In the same white boat with you, Karen. We're expecting a total of ten more inches today. I finally did cover my plants... I surrender.

  5. I'm definitely of the "sometimes it pays to be late" school. :)

    "Peekaboo" is my favourite I think, though you've made the choice very difficult!

    P.S. Re moisture - I think we're finally out of drought status here in WI. Hoping the same happens for you!

    1. Sue, I hope like heck what we're getting will protect the mountains from fires this summer. If we can keep the fires away this summer, I'll tolerate whatever snow we get, no matter how late it comes.

      PS: That's my favorite of this batch, too. But I got a bunch more fresh shots this morning, and there might be a tulip shot to top the grape hyacinth...

  6. Those are beautiful! Exactly how I've been feeling this week, even though our winter wasn;'t as dramatically snowy as this, it was still long, long, and longer. (and yes, very cheery! I'll have to work on that for next week)

    1. Niahm, our winter was so dry and so warm most of the time, so this spring has been absolutely wild. If not for the extreme heat, drought and fires last summer, I think I'd be pretty depressed with the ten new inches we are receiving today. But we need the moisture. I keep saying that! I'm very thankful our mountains might have a better chance of thriving this summer...

    1. Thank YOU, Paul! It was a pleasure to "meet" you. I wish you well in your recovery efforts!

  8. Rolling over and playing dead isn't all it's cracked up to be. Tends to attract flies. Though in this case they may be frozen flies I suppose. :)

    1. Frozen flies, now there's something I have not photographed yet!!!

  10. What a wonderful combination...snow, flowers, crochet and Spring? Looks like Utah a couple of weeks ago. :-) Snowed here yesterday...it was our wedding anniversary, also snowed the day we got married so it was a pleasant reminder of that day. Have a good rest of the week!

    1. Thank you, Astri! We got ten more inches the day this was published, so I have enough shots for a whole new post! But I might wait a while. This could get boring fast. :)

  11. No storm can beat the spring. It's very sunny and quite warm here in Finland. Have a nice day.

    1. And dig and replant, and dig and replant, and dig and replant... :)
