SPRING~

The view outside my window on this first day of Spring 2013... 
All I can say... my peas will not be going in the ground anytime soon!...

Unless they are frozen peas. I like them better that way. It is cold and windy here but no snow. Oh when and where is Spring.

Farm Girl said...

Well I hope it will be sooner than you think. Have you thought about having ground hog stew yet. :)

Hugs Julie! We have fierce winds, very low wind chills tonight & it will snow before morning. Meanwhile the forsythia and red quince are blooming in the fence line, and the robins are racing everywhere in the grass all day long. Daffodils dance on the hillside and my sons jeans were dancing on the clothes line. They sure do smell nice, now that I have brought them in half frozen. I hear the rumble of the coal cars on the train track, and the river melody of the cold mists. Spring will surely visit you soon. I always have hope for Maine!

I did throw out my grass seed today. I've always heard that you're supposed to do this before the last snowfall.....&SURELY THIS IS THE LAST SNOW. Spring, where are you!!!! Jan

Snow peas...leave it to Kim :)
Beautiful but enough is enough already. A few flurries but no accumulation in Ohio, just damp, dreary and cold.
Hugs :)

Kim is very funny, ha ha ha. Unless they are Snow peas.....

Last year it was warm on this day and I'm sure some people planted their peas. It's still early for us to plant peas but maybe you can plant some in pots.

We had a snow storm here in Ottawa also and there were cars off the road this morning.

I don't like extreme weather.

Praying for spring

We had some snow yesterday . Oh New England it's Spring ...stop the snow and bring on the sprouts.

Wow! I feel your pain. We just have cold here in MO, and the threat of some snow/rain mixes over the next several days. Your neck of the woods really got dumped on. Again. Last year, Spring arrived here a month ahead. This year, I feel like we'll be a month behind. Stay warm! -Tammy

I can sympathize with you...the snow is up to the top of my garden gate here in New Hampshire. I know it will be a long time before we can reach our cottage in Maine...think warm thoughts.

You may need to start those seeds inside!

WendyBee said...

i know...right?

A beautiful photo but not something I would wish on anyone on the 1st day of spring. We're supposed to get snow overnight and in the morning! Ug!!!

Pondside said...

Winter is not going to let go a minute too soon over where you are. I could try blowing some moist, warm-ish Pacific air out your way!

Janice said...

Brrrr...and the snowy pictures just keep happening. I guess you need to head to Trader Joe's for some more flowers to get some spring color.

March is sure leaving us like a Lion...
