    Such a pretty picture Suzanne. I love seeing birds against the snow like this.

    It is a lovely photo – but I’m afraid Winter swooped back to Iowa for the day – 2.5″ layer of snow! :hissyfit:

    Yep….and here comes winter again in DALLAS! Raining and 48 right now, dropping to about 27 tonight with rain turning, possibly, to snow. And EVERYTHING is either in bloom or in bud. Hopefully it won’t last long enough to bite the pretties!

    We in Upper Michigan have such scenes from November through March and even sometimes April in an Ordinary winter. We are still waiting this year. It has been incredibly mild, and we are loving it. It is like we have been forgotten by winter this year. We may get walloped yet…there’s still time. Whatever happens here now, we will always remember this winter as a once in a lifetime thing. Your picture is beautiful. Nature is amazing. Thank you for sharing your photography, your talents and your wit.

    OH. NO. Now you’ve done it! You’ve been RUDE to Winter. NEVER, EVER be rude to Winter. She will have her revenge!

    I’m in Dallas, also. Horrible weather today!

    I think there are three Carols posting here who live in Dallas. We should start a club.

    Your photo is so beautiful. It makes winter look like fun. Today is the first day of spring! Cleaning house today. Its clean up week with the city of Santa Clara, CA and we can throw anything we want away if we put it in the street/gutter area. As soon as I put it out somebody comes by and takes it away before the city can dispose of it. I am happy to have it recycled. Anyway, spring is here but the only birds I see are crows (I still feed them walnuts they seem to like them)My dog loves the sunshine! :woof: :woof: :snoopy: :snoopy:

    According to T.S. Eliot, April is the cruelest month. He was wrong–it’s March.

    I LOVE the lack of rain (and cold, and snow) lately. I hate having to wait for the puddles to dry up before we can mow the yard for the first time – won’t be long, already saw the first dandelion! I really enjoy this warmer, dry weather. HAPPY SPRING!!! :sun: :butterfly: :happyflower:

    Suzanne, I TOLD you you shouldn’t have been so rude to Winter. It’s been in the 70’s ALL week. And then you post THIS and NOW we have snow forecast for Monday AND Tuesday. I live in North Georgia, NOT Oklahoma or the Dakotas. It should NOT be snowing in March!

    GO APOLOGIZE TO WINTER AT ONCE!!!!
    If you don’t she may be headed YOUR way too. Perhaps if you say you’re sorry, VERY sorry, she’ll relent and I can get my garden planted and my spring cleaning done and…..YOU won’t get SNOW too!
    Remember that old margarine commercial “It’s not NICE to fool with Mother Nature!”.

    And you may want to take her a cookie, too! Yeah, she might LIKE a cookie. Clover does, why shouldn’t Winter? And if you don’t want to invite her inside, couldn’t you at least let her stay on a porch with the dogs and TWO chickens? When she gets bored, she’ll leave. ‘Cos what can 3 dogs, two chickens and winter talk about? See, she WILL get bored and leave on her own. She’ll go someplace INTERESTING – like AUSTRALIA or New Zealand or South Africa. And she’ll be too interested in THEM to bother US any more! At least, for a while. Until THEY get boring. But it will buy US some time. Spring will come back because WINTER she won’t be around to fight with Spring and make Spring go away crying.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
