We are knee deep in snow and ice too. It will make spring that much sweeter when it finally arrives. (Okay, so I might be telling myself that just to make myself feel better.)

Love the shot of the path of footsteps!

Sheryl: It seems like half th country is still buried in snow this March. Last year we had temps 40 degrees above normal, this year we're 10 to 20 degrees below normal and still getting snow. It can't melt soon enough, lol!

Shelley Munro said...

Sigh, I love daffodils. I hope you get some warmer weather soon.

Beth F said...

We have the same!

Yes, winter is hanging on like those icicles! But it won't be long now!

Heather said...

Shelley: I do remember that--loved the photo you posted last year of dafs in London.

Heather said...

Beth F: It's nice to know we're not the only ones suffering the below normal temps! Happy spring! :-\

Heather said...

Colleen: I wish winter and those icicles would melt away already. We have a windchill this morning of -6F!

Bethanne said...

Those flowers look beeeeautiful! I am so anxious for Spring. :( Can't wait for some solid warm weather.

The snow pictures are beautiful, too. But, well...move on. :D

Kimberly Menozzi said...

I miss snow so much I honestly wouldn't mind that. LOL!

Jana said...

Daffodils have been blooming here since February. Not that I'm bragging or anything. hehehe

But seriously, I'll happily pack up the overgrown weeds that sprouted in my yard overnight and send them to you!

We are the same way except for the snow. Tired of the cold and dreariness of winter, cabin fever is raging here in Kentucky!

Heather said...

Bethanne: Thank you for the compliments on the floral photos. As for winter...I would love to move on, but Mother Nature does not seem as obliging. Cold temps are to linger into April now. :(

Heather said...

Kimberly: LOL -- weirdo! You are more than welcome to all this snow still lingering about. We are about 20 inches above normal, with a chance of more before the month is out. I'm ready for warmer weather!

Heather said...

Jana: Braggart! We haven't seen so much as a crocus here yet. Of course, we can't see the ground yet, either. :-|

Oh, and you can keep your weeds. There's enough of that next door. (Yeah, I only wish I were joking.)

Heather said...

Hi LuAnn! On the national news tonight they showed the weather map from this time last year compared to today. Last year: almost the entire lower 48 had way above normal temperatures, with hundreds of record highs being set. This year: Aside from the deep south, states are experiencing below normal temps with serious winter storms. It's almost comforting to know we're all suffering together. *grin*

Come visit my blog and enjoy the spring flowers (actually bushes)in my backyard. Your snow looks so inviting to me - but after several months of it I'd probably be yearning for spring too!

Heather said...

Lessandra: Yes, after four months of cold and snow, it does grow wearying. Of course, come July or August we'll likely be wishing it was just a wee bit cooler, lol. I am anxious to see the daffodils, lilac, crabapple and magnolia in bloom again.
