Snow on the ground and soon to be in the 50s

I had to clean up the car before taking my charge to preschool..

They are cold, really cold, the morning walk registered a cool twenty-nine degrees and the daffodils, having finally crowned themselves in gold, are not happy. I am not either as I would have liked to really enjoy the fruits of my having planted new daffodils each fall for the past few years.

We set up the patio and thank goodness I have covers on everything.

The forsythia had been starting to turn yellow and stopped cold in its tracks. I am guessing that it will be okay.

The pond is doing well and I believe that the rain barrels are full. The pond is overflowing.

I still cannot believe that the temps will get that high and the snow will immediately make a getaway.

The sun is shining and although cold it is happening.

I took our five year old charge to preschool and now we have our three year old charge playing with puzzles and his ‘monster truck.’ He and his daddy had gone to a monster truck show and it was really exciting for him.

It is sad that it is too messy to go outside and play as just a week ago, that is what we did and today, it just isn’t really a possibility. It is so wet and messy.

It won’t be long. We just need to be patient. We have been very patient. More is still necessary, however.

I just hope that the daffodils hold out and that the forsythia is beautiful. It is almost Easter, for God’s sake!
