Ah, Spring!

This is not a stock photo I pulled out of my stash from this winter. I took it this morning! We had freezing rain, plus a couple inches of snow fall over night. And it is currently (as I write) snowing more. We could have a couple more inches fall by this evening. So much for a warm up and thaw during the day!

It does look pretty though, so I cannot complain too hard.
The weird thing is hearing song birds twitter right through all of this.
(I heard them singing while I was out taking these pictures!)
They are ignoring this slight set back (Snow? What snow?!)
and continuing their courtships.
It will be warmer this week (genuine spring weather!) and nests will need to be built!
So while you may find lush photos of crocuses and tulips bursting into bloom on other blogs,
all you will find here is dormant hostas (and weeds!)
Perhaps I should have planted some bulbs. :)
In any event, spring has not quite sprung in my little part of Missouri.
But anything can happen in a week.
