Nesting

Just as longer days appear, and plans of garden-plotting begin, a March-snow falls from the sky.
Thankfully measured in inches, not feet, as with other parts of the country.
Newspaper coronets have been placed over plants that have boldly appeared from the winter soil,  and white sheets draped to protect emerging Clematis vines.
Humans and portly felines now cocooned fireside.

One can never depend on winter to bid adieu and mean it :)
Cuddling by the fire is still nice to do...especially with a cup of tea, a warm throw and a good book~

Hugs~

Here too Jo. Just when I think spring is here, it gets cold. I see blossoms and leaves, but then it freezes. Sigh...

That is definitely one of my favorite pictures! So warm and cozy. I was just writing a post (but gave up on it) about the poor tender young flower shoots and buds, all over the yard, and now snow coming this evening. Unbelievable! Even the Peonies are about eight inches tall. I would like to sit with those little mice in front of the fire!

Another wonderful picture. Great that you can protect the new growth in some way. Hope spring shows its face again soon.

Nothing is ready to emerge here, thankfully, as we have yet another storm coming tonight. Hope all your plants are ok!!

We've got the same storm as Deb heading in... ugh.

Love that image! So cozy...

Love this little pic. Yes, another storm. My snow is down to 6 inches and was hoping it would melt soon but more on top will keep it for a while. My mantra is spring is just around the corner, spring is just around the corner... hugs, lj

Jo, March has given us some surprises. We had a sunny cold weekend . Snow flurries today and the next couple of days then 50 degrees and sunshine on Thursday. Hooray. Stay warm, blessings, xoxo, Susie

I loved those books when I was young. I remember one particularly. I believe it was the hedgehog with the jam sandwich that got stuck in the snowball, am I remembering that right? Love this picture so cozy and I would not mind winter so much if I was in that room in front of the fire. I remember loving rainy days in front of the coal fire when I was young. Sigh...............meanwhile in Michigan, still snowing.
Luv Janice
