From Tulips to Snow

Not sure why I came back when I did (from a quick visit to family in Oregon) but I left tulips and daffodils, walking outside to a serious snow dump.

Don't worry though, it will be gone soon. Just as soon as the blacktop shows on our driveways, the rest will be history (crossing my fingers on this that it is sooner rather than later...).

You can always put out silk tulips until the real thing pops up, if you really miss them. From a distnace no one will know the difference.

I would ask myself the same question!  I do hope that your snow leaves much sooner than later!  Have a great day!

Hi there David, Larry took some flowers from an arrangement at the house and did just that! The next day the poor things were covered in a fresh batch of snow and leaning over with the weight of it.

I am with you Kathy! My cousin is so excited about another week of snow machining (his wife is on our side of the fence though).   :)  Jacque

Tony and Darcy, I am getting tired of my snow theme...I am about to break out my old cheerleader outfit and cheer on spring (if only that thing still fits-ha).  Jacque

Tulips are in bloom for such a short time anyway, I'd be disappointed to find they were already gone.
