April Blues (and Whites) – #1LinerWeds
I said it. Didn’t I say it? Didn’t I just say that you can’t trust spring to arrive in April in New England? I did – I said it on Monday!
said wrote that post on Saturday night, but I was right. On Monday morning, it started snowing. When I took Maddie out to conduct some business, she looked at the snow starting to cover the ground and looked at me, as if to say:
“I thought it was sitting season…”
A few hours later, when the Editor took Maddie back out, Maddie was happy to find 3-5 inches of snow covering the yard. One more day of play would happily replace one day of sitting.
This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s fun weekly series One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner, I’d encourage you to join in on the fun. You can follow this link to participate and to see the one-liners from the other participants.
This was on Sunday. Maddie was enjoying the warmth of the sun.
“This is the best!”
Faith and I were trying to play Backgammon when Maddie decided her hand had a better use.
Going out with Maddie first thing, has its benefits.
“This is where my cot goes. Why is there snow here?”
“Seriously, where did this stuff come from?”
“I don’t get it. We were sitting in the sun yesterday.”
“It’s snowing again. I thought it was done snowing.”
We had about 5″ of snow on Monday. It fell and, for the most part, it disappeared during the day.
This is not what April 2nd is supposed to look like.
These plants were hoping for some spring sunshine and a warm day.
April showers are supposed to bring flowers, not drifts.
Pristine, no longer. Maddie has been here.
Everything was nicely covered in a white blanket.
The picture of spring.
The Forsythia were not counting on this.
