and at last, I have the pictures I was snapping last Thursday! The first 2 are snaps of our blizzard, taken through the window. The orange machine is our villages biggest snow plow. You can see it has the 'tank' style trac wheels instead of tires. Good thing too! We got about 14" of fresh snow that day.
I snapped these from the window by the computer and thought I'd go out to the patio for another one. Somehow I managed to stop off in the sewing room and lay the camera on the ironing board. Competely forgot about going outside and at some point laid fabric on top of the camera....LOL. Found it yesterday when I was cleaning and straightening up for the inspection.
These last 3 pictures I snapped outside today while getting the mail. We are having a spring thaw...*VBS* We have some incredibly large snow banks that need to melt, but with temps in the 40's it won't take too long. The first pic is of the view I usually snap for you..looking south. Second one is my front yard, taken from the street, looking north.
Last one is of my house taken from out by the mail box. Lots of snow! There are blooming apricot trees over at Libby's,
http://simplylibby.blogspot.com/ and daffodils at Linda J's http://catsnqlts2.blogspot.com/ so far that's it for spring blossoms. I'm sure more of you have posted them also if you have them. We are about a month from even the tinest flower I think. Altho tulips may coming up next to south facing wall if sheltered, but will surely die if we have freezing rain.
