Ok Mother Nature



                                                                              THIS ISN’T FUNNY ANY MORE !

                                                               And it isn’t even April fools day yet that is tomorrow !!!

We had a beautiful sunny mild day with rain and then sunshine by the evening as the sun was setting I was out taking photos enjoying the lack of snow  and all the melting  and the promise of more grass to be showing !

                                                           These are from yesterday  evening !

Well Miggs time to go in now it’s getting darker all though the sun didn’t fully set till 8pm but we went in anyways and had a cuppa tea  , the entire time  Miggs and I were outside Papa was in his shop busy on another project , we will show that when all is said and done lol so in we went . Then Papa locked up the shop for the night and came in to and had a cuppa tea .

         So  as the evening went on we watched a few of our shows then it was off to bed  at 10pm Papa gets up early , blinds closed windows open a bit and the sound of Robins and other birdies this morning woke me , me thinking another nice spring day .

                                                      AND THEN  WHACK   !!!! like a smack in the chops !!

we have hardly any snow left at all now (thank goodness), can't believe how much you have left. Good to see Miggs taking advantage of it all though!!

eileeninmd said...

I agree, enough already.. Time for winter and the snow to go away.. I love your Miggs photos and the swans in flight! Awesome moon capture! Have a happy day!

Margaret Adamson said...

Boy, spring is really taking her time to come to you however Miggs will be very pleased to have more snow!

Primitive Stars said...

Oh boy, not funny at all. Come on Spring. I do love your pictures though.Blessings Francine.

William Kendall said...

I am fully expecting snow for April Fool's Day.

Oh deary me...
Sending sunshine wishes your way, and hopefully all that snow will soon be melted.
Beautiful pictures as always Elaine, I feel as though I've been on a nature tour.....perfect.

Haha. Spring is such a tease isn't it? We're getting snow flurries and squalls here today. By Friday it's supposed to be 11 and rainy then very cold on the weekend. It's so up and down isn't it. Oh well, by May it should have itself all sorted out. LOL Just 4 more weeks of this crazy weather.

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

Not funny at all is right! Enough with winter already; time for some spring! Beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing them.

I sure hope you didn't send that our way. It's a nice sunny day, chilly first thing, but nice enough to walk around the gardens this afternoon and watch the ribin hopping all over the place.

I'd love to be able to give Old Man winter a swift kick into next year! But as my husband keeps telling me, we just have to take what we're given when it comes to the weather.

Janneke said...

I can imagine this is not fun, but Miggs will enjoy it. It seems Miggs likes having a cold snow belly.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Every year we play the waiting game to see if spring will actually appear, don't we? There are few snow patches left around us and I see some brave bulbs peeking a little out of the ground.

Linda Kay said...

Hang in there, Miggs! The snow won't be here long before the sun comes out and melts it away. At least you have the robin in the tree, trying to call in Spring!

Amy at love made my home said...

I don't know what is up with the weather at the moment, we had blue sky and sunshine today combined with great big hailstones and rain - but at least no snow! Sorry that your spring is not quite springing yet! xx

I am looking forward to Friday when it is forecast to be sunny and warm (relatively speaking 14C).
