Still waiting for spring

It’s a common theme, I know.  Everyone is sick of winter.  I’m not going to whine about how sick I am of the snow and cold and wind and the fact that EVERYTHING is shades of black and white. I promise.  (Oops, maybe I just did, a little.) ;)

I take some small comfort from the fact that once it gets warm it will probably stay warm, considering it’s already mid-April.

Maybe in your part of the world the weather’s better.  Here’s a photo from last summer (July 15th, to be exact) of the front garden, which contains our old pump handle.  See how tall it is?

Here is a photo from last weekend (Easter Sunday, to be exact) of the same pump handle.

Kind of depressing, isn’t it?

Well, it can’t last too much longer–the old pump is showing more every day, I think. And spring really is coming. . . but it can’t come too fast for me. :)

    I won’t tell you that we haven’t had any snow since January……. Ooops!

    When I was walking around the yard yesterday, I noticed that my daffs are up and some of the tulips are blooming. The apricot tree was in full all out bloom on Easter and now the cherry and peach trees are blooming. And lots of honey bees.

    We’ve got the garden tilled up and potatoes, onions and peas planted. Seeds are started for the tomatoes and peppers in the house to be transplanted after Mothers Day.

    Its not warm like Mexico, but its to be in the 60s today. You’re more than welcome to come and visit! :)

      Lucky, lucky, lucky. :) The snow has actually pretty much melted off our vegetable garden, but it will be a while yet before we can do any planting. Our average last frost date is around mid to late May, but it may actually be Memorial weekend this year before I get anything in the ground.

      Well, maybe we’ll be blessed with a particularly late fall this year! We can always hope! ;)

        Are you still seeing your garden? I’ve heard about the late winter storm hitting in your area.

        I noticed yesterday that I have iris that is now starting to bud out. I believe its going to be a very hot and long summer around here.

        Yesterday we got a huge dust storm. Most of the fields are disked, and with 32mph winds, it picks up and settles miles away. Everything has a good layer of dust. Yuck!

          Well, it started snowing after I got to work today, but it’s coming down pretty fast and thick! AARRGGHH! :( They’re predicting 3-6 inches! Yuck. I’m so done. At this point I think I might take your dust instead. ;) Haha!
