Birds singing, cherry blossoms fluttering on the warm breeze,
Buds poking out of the warm, rich soil, daffodils and tulips in bloom......
(cue: car- screeching- to- a- halt sound)
Yeah, that's right...SNOW.
Seems like Mother Nature was up all night playing a prank on us here
in the Pacific Southwest of Canada.
You see, we here like to boast of living in the banana belt and being able to
walk around in shorts for most of the year.
O.K, I don't but SOME people DO!
So this morning this was the scene out to the hen house.
Any other day prior to April 1st I would be more than happy to see a bit of the white stuff.
But not on my chives and tulips...
This is my garden first thing this morning...
I know two goats who are flabbergasted by the whole business...
And then there's my poor little pansies who are having to endure all kinds of weather surprises...
Do I detect a tear on that little face?
I guess this is what it's like in the REAL world of Canada.
But just the other day I talked to my daughter in Toronto and the weather was gorgeous there.
Just goes to show you...when you think everything is grand, Mother Nature throws a curve ball your way.
Or should I say 'snow ball'?
