Jokes On Us !


Hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend ! We did !

Now  , on  to the weather ! and where the heck is spring still !  BOOHOO !!!

Ok , who thinks it’s funny to have snow squalls today and freezing winds . I don’t think that is funny at all !    Happy April Fools Day !

Ha ! I feel a fool for hopping spring would be better as April arrived  , boy was I wrong ! This time last spring we were practically in a heat wave with the temps and lots of sunshine, now mind you the sun is shining today but then disappears for a moment behind dark grey clouds that are letting go of snow squalls then it would clear up  , it has been doing this most of the day  thankfully the snow melts on contact but the winds are still carrying that cold bite to them !


This time last spring we were doing our gardens and had Daffodils , Hyacinths and Tulips in bloom !


                      Papa was cutting the grass this time last  spring ! This  spring it is still brown !


This time last spring our Orioles were back in full force ! I think it will be a while till they show up this spring .

This time last spring I already had some flowers from the gardens cut and in the house !

Oh well  ,these things happen . I will just keep keeping on for the weather to get better besides it is just the 1st of April !

                         Until next time hope you all have a great day no matter what the weather !

                                           Thanks For Popping By !

Even when we do get a day in the 50's it takes until about 4 in the afternoon to reach that temperature, and the nights are still getting into the 30's. Soooo ready for some warmth. Raining here off and on today.

The weather is miserable here (the snow is blowing sideways) but there has been a flock of robins (about 40+) out the back today...cheered me up no end!

Yes, our weather is way behind compared to last years, too.. I think this year is typical though, eh?

Everyone is wanting spring to arrive soon, Elaine. What I don't want is the heat and humidity of summer too soon.

Yes cold here in New England barely, barely a glimpse of Spring anywhere.

We're still waiting on spring here too. I think the March winds have been blowing forever. We did,however, have a few hours of sunshine yesterday, and the air had a hint of warmth to it. A hint...just a hint. :)
