spring snow

the spring storm came
silently in the middle of the night..
when i went to bed wed. night
i figured we would get a little snow
but not a foot...

i love to see my tulips and daffodils
poking out from fresh fallen snow..
but with a foot of fresh powder my daffodils didn't have a chance..
they were buried alive..
for 3 days buried..
when the snow started melting
they were still vibrant yellow
but just lying there limp...
i didn't have the heart to get that photo

the sun came out for a moment sat. afternoon
and i got some shots...
before it started snowing again
while the sun was shining...

the birds had just returned a few weeks ago
but not one in sight that morning..
as i drove out of the driveway..
the birds were all out on the road
scampering around trying to figure out
what was going on in their world..

i love the snow
but i had to remind myself this weekend
to be patient with mother nature...
she is in charge..
and i have no say..
in what is going to fall..

i hear we are in for some sun this week...
