Snowy Spring

We have had a snowy start to spring. it snowed last week. we have had plenty of snow showers, hail and sleet. it's not suppose to snow, it's end of march! my tulips, hyacinths and daffodils (probably the only 3 flowers i currently have in my garden), are in total shock! they're now confused as to whether they should come out and bloom!!! i just pray that they wont die on me! i'm sure it wont cause it wasnt me who planted them, it was dad. he planted the bulbs for us last autumn. he has green hands and whatever he plants will surely grow!

We were in the car, back from the DIY store, getting my picket fence, and this was the view.


It snowed the next morning too. our car covered with snow. but slowly melting away....

View from Aidan's room. on the right is our garage roof, and below is the roof to our dining room and kitchen.


My olive tree on the right (fingers crossed, please grow, please please).

Weather's much better this week. we even played in the garden. hope it'll stay! till my next post (which is going to be very soon!), have a great week ahead guys!

oh it's still snowing there isn't it? Olives are tough so I'm sure they'll be okay.

Hehehe I sound like that too when my raspberry tree decided to die on me. Everyday I keep saying "please don't die! please please please!!!" suddenly spring came and it's flourishing like crazy!

I'm waiting for my lily of the valley and tulips to grow too! So exciting! I planted thyme a week ago and the seedings are popping out! So happy! I hope your flowers will

Anyways you have a lovely home and a cute, adorable son! aidan's england bib for the win!

Snow needs a calendar, eh?
We here (in Ontario) are finally getting rid of most of our snow, but it is the rain that is dragging it away!
My favourite memories are of all the flowers EVERYWHERE. Have you been to Keukenhof yet?

Aidan's Mama & Papa said...

violet: i suppose not! haha. does it snow a lot in ontario? and when's spring over there? yep we've been to keukenhof for the first time last year, with Aidan! the picture of him on my sidebar was taken at keukenhof last year! we hope to visit again this year, together with my parents and hopefully my sister and family (fingers crossed). when are you coming here again? i can prepare us a picnic basket! ;)
