Snow Showers!

As you can see  in the top right hand corner
of my desktop screen capture,
the temperature has dropped,
even dipped below zero C (32 F)
which means
~~~bye bye Miss American Pie~~~
(^click ^)
I digress
bye bye sweet summer winds!

The spikey snowflakes cover the emerging red blooms of the Pieris shrub.
This is one of my Dad Jim's favourite shrubs too,
many of them dot the garden.

 Just last week we were strolling through the park
along side my favourite spring runoff brook...

when I ran into this mother of  a boxer
carrying a stick big enough
to knock us all off our feet...

Ron was busy collecting chickadees again....lol!
This little winged feller and a few more flitted about us
looking for seeds or nuts....they aren't fussy!

So when Mr. Boxer scurried off, I watched Ron carefully because you know
what chickadees are like...they can cause
a major raucous and disturb the peaceful surroundings...
like that would ever happen.

You caught me dreaming of last week when life
was warmer and Mother Nature was being kind.
As I lay here on my Baby, I hope this finds you in
a warm world~~~one of
serenity
peace
and
love
I trust that I have and if I haven't
take a moment and smell the roses
or coffee or toast....mmmmm!
Feel better now?!

  10. That Mother Nature can be more of a tease than a twenty one year old with an affection for money.
    Yep. Cold here too. But going back up to 18c tomorrow.

    1. It is definitely "a bird in the hand" and a few more which flew away very quickly! The header was chosen from some over-exposed pix and then edited!
