 oh have we had snow and more snow and still some more snow.
it has snowed here for 3 days and yes it is april !
remember the saying " april showers bring may flowers" ?
well i think my tulips, daffodils and crocuses will first have to get over the shock
of feeling as if they were caught in an avalanche.
hopefully the buds on the fruit trees survived and i'm hoping for apples in the fall.
but i know my peas, spinach and beets are all smiling :)
the weather women says 50-60's through sunday then......
yup another snow storm may be blowing in.
one can hardly complain since we have been in a drought for 2 years now.
so i say lets enjoy all this whiteness, get those sunglasses on and take a walk in the spring/winter wonderland!!
soon we all will be complaining that it is too HOT.

an early birthday present was found in my mailbox today..
it came yesterday but due to the storm i did not venture down the road to the collect the mail.
two wonderful books and the long coveted 50mm 1.8f lens.
how fun is that?

and yes my dogs are getting a little cabin feverish. 
they so want to be sunning on the porch,
soon very soon
sam and saddie.

That's a crazy amount of snow!!! But you certainly have the right attitude about it. Enjoy your new lense - that's a good choice!

I will quit compaining about the cold here. We only got a few inches of snow but we had fierce wind and lots of tree limbs down. Stay warm
