Lost(?) today - one spring

When are we going to learn - March is still March around here!

Uh oh... ok, so I understand the flowers here in my area are smart. They just don't come up because they know when winter isn't over. The other day I'm yelling at the bald patches on the ground saying "come up flowers!! There's NO reason you cannot show your faces! It IS warm out here!!"
And the next day it snows heavily... *sigh*

Beautiful snow pics, I hope the little guys survive.

We have a saying here "never cast a cloud till May is out!"
Mum would remind me I had to keep my vest on until May! LOL!

Your snow and ice is still a reminder that flowers take longer to bloom than snow to fall.

Thanks for stopping and commenting. I am glad you got to see me in my blonde wig. LOL

You are so right! We usually get one last snowstorm here the last week of March or first week of April.

But the crocus are lovely.

Oh, those are beautiful photos. I think a little snow cover over the purple flowers is gorgeous. Spring is just skipping in, a little skip at a time.

The first book I remember reading was titled, Mamma's Bank Account, by Forbes. It was about an immigrant Norwegian family living in Chicago. Although they were struggling economically, when the children needed something Mama would tell them she'd find the money, withdraw it from her bank account. Twenty years later she confessed to her children that, "in all my life, I never been inside a Bank. Is not good for little ones to be afraid - to not feel secure."

When I read that book I heard the voices speak in a sing-song way, with an accent that was delicious to me. I'm pretty sure you'd sound like that, RuneE.

Poor little ones, they must have frozen.
Even so, since we don´t have snow around, I loved seeing snow and ice covering early flowers.

Hehe. Ja. Mars er lunefull..... Morgenen i går hadde en optimistisk start. Så, kom det noen byger.
Samme i dag. Men, denne dama har iallefall får gjort litt ute innimellom bygene. Beskjæring osv.
Ønsker deg en fin dag i morgen, med alle værforandringer som kommer..... Vi drar til Kvamskogen. Dagstur. Det er meldt finere vær der, enn her ved kysten. Så, jeg koker kakaoen i kveld og krysser fingrene. For fint vær og frisk(ere) unger!
Kikker innom igjen før påske. Onsdag er vel passende... ;)

Your flowers are very determined

I love the flowers peeking through the snow. Purple against the crystal white snow. They would make great greeting cards.

That's March most places. We don't get snow (not often, we did in 1993 in March, though - in Florida!) but we can go from over 80 degrees F one day to around 30 degrees and freezing a day or two later and then back to the 80s again after that... soon we'll be happy if it is ONLY in the 80s once the heat index reaches the 115 F range in the middle of summer and humidity is near 100%...

Spring is just around the corner. Hope your winter weather will take notice. Nice purple and white color photo, nevertheless.

Paulie said...

The purple crocus against the white snow is gorgeous!!!! I say make your Easter cards from that photo of the crocus in the snow! Gosh, you get the best of both worlds. . . SNOW and crocus. We haven't had much snow this winter and our flowers have arrived for spring three weeks ago. I would love to have that snow among the crocus. I am sorry that you wish it were not there. I wish for you a quick thaw and the snow melts and flowers prosper!

And April is also difficult to rely upon.
Still beautiful Easter here in Oslo. Cold, but my wife´s sporty mink fur and my hat can be used for city walks.
Backup march 9th and everything in order.
Beautiful the second photos it is.
God påske, håper du mobilblogger fra hytten og ikke hytta som vi sier her

Kostas said...

Very beautiful the colours of flowers but also the corners that him you pulled photograph improbable, elect these very good!

Suzi-k said...

oh what lovely photos, hope you picked those brave (but silly) little flowers and took them into a nice warm house before the snow could kill them!

Dick said...

Wow, this looks very nice.
Happy Easter
