Winter?

The meteorologists keep telling those of us in the south central part of the country, that a mild winter was predicted. And so far it has been. But as always in Arkansas, the temps and weather patterns change within a 24 hour period. It can really wreak havoc with your allergies and attitude.  Monday we had snow and sleet in the state.

The predictions are that the temps in the next few days will be in the 60s. I've been "holed up" in the house for so long, I am having trouble getting out when the weather is nice.

Some of my jonquils began blooming, but the cold snap really did a number on them, so I haven't taken any photos.  I'm hoping the ones that haven't opened up yet, will do so in the warmer days ahead and I can get a nice shot of some of them.  I planted some iris plants three weeks ago, but they look rather sad right now. I should have done it in November, but just couldn't get to it. They came from my Mom's yard and I couldn't get to Rison to dig them up. I know next year they will be wonderful though. That's sure something to look forward to.

So, while we wait for spring proper, I'll have to be content to looking at the drooping jonquils and dreary skies. To every thing there is a season, and a purpose under heaven....

Your posts are not popping up on my post-finder! I need to just look each day. I noticed you have a Valentine one, too. Your quilt is beautiful. You should put these things on some blog parties; they would gather attention! And my blooming plants don't look so good either anymore, now that the cold snap startled them. We brought some in that were still in pots waiting for springtime planting.

We have had around 40 days and then teen nights - so it is holding things from sprouting to quickly. But that is mild for us here - and NO snow! I think we will pay for it thru the summer.

Weather is very crazy this year. I won't complain though. But I've never in my life remembered having this little of snow!

Did y'all get any snow? I went in Wal-Mart and it was snowing/sleeting outside and starting to get slick. I came out and it had turned to rain. Snow for less than an hour. CRAZY! I hate to think about how bad the bugs will be this summer without much cold.
