Spring...Where are you?

This is what mother nature brought me today. A winter storm warning! How can Environment Canada put out a winter storm warning when it is spring? Shouldn't it be called a spring storm warning? I need to look into that....
So I sit here today looking out onto freezing rain. All the schools are canceled and the children remain inside when they should be outside playing ball and running around the yard and I should be "playing" in the garden. 

This is what it looks like outside my window.

This is what it looked like last year three weeks earlier in March.

 The hellebore was showing it's beauty.

 The lungwart was showing off it's colour variations.

 The primrose was showing off it's abundant blooms.

 The scilla was beautiful with it's delicate flowers.

Finally the hyacinth was showing the promise of blooms to come.

Will we ever see this again? I am beginning to wonder.

Is This a Joke?

 This is what I woke up to this morning. Sadly it is no joke and it is still snowing at 5 pm. 
I had dreams of sitting on that lounge basking in some vitamin D today, but mother nature 
has other plans.

Only yesterday I was so excited to see that my crocus was going to bloom. The tough little guy is trying so hard but unfortunately it had to be April fools day.

Oh what a sad sight!

I hope mother nature treats me better tomorrow.

Spring... The Performance Begins

Although it may not look like much now I am sure it will get a standing ovation when it has completed it's song!
Today I actually went out and did some gardening. It felt so good. I pruned back the wisteria and the clematis. My feet got a little wet when the snow got in by shoes as I was venturing to the compost pile but it was worth it!

The crocus are starting to bloom.

The daffodils are peaking out. 

Hopefully I will be out again soon... sigh.
