Thursday Thoughts – April Weather

Well, looking out my window two days ago – winter was back again…

The doves got new snow caps –
– but my spring flower pot looked a bit sulky…
– and the poor scilla looked more blue than ever.

When the sun finally came out, everything looked sparkly and wonderful again – April…just fooling you…
The little Hepatica in wedding dress?

April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.

  1. If only I had REALLY spell checked prior to sub mitting my first draft 🙂

    And we are grumbling because the temperature has plummeted to 13 Celsius (noon Sunday, April 11), thanks to an Antarctic polar blast giving a taste of what is to come. This weekend it was forecast to snow down to 800 metres (we are at 115 m) so just cold! Love your photos especially the daffodils.

  3. Here too this week we had scattered snow showers – but only tiny amount and it didn’t settle. Everything looks lovely dressed in white but you worry about the plants recovering. It is still cold here but dry since.

    • Lucky you it is still dry – dry here as well, but Sunday the forecast says snow and hail again. The wood anemonies will not create a ”carpet” this year I think…they are already bent down and suffering from frost and snow.

  4. Oh dear Ann-Christine, poor little blossoms. I hope they survive the snow! The return of winter surely gave you an amazing photo op tho, didn’t it?! Beautiful!

  5. I grew up hearing this little weather proverb: ”Late snow will early go.” That’s part of what made a spring snow so delicious. We knew it wouldn’t be around for weeks and weeks.

  6. Wonderful photos…Over us here its the same.Rain, wind, Hail then today it snowed. The local saying perhaps is true ” April, April,ich macht was ich will…” means, April do whatever he pleases…:-)

  7. Winter always seems to have a sting in its tail…. we to have swung from record highs to below freezing and a touch of snow, all in a week. Outlook not good either. Nothing we can do to change the weather menu 🙂

  8. Beautiful photos (and I see some sunshine too)! Same weather in Belgium – a mini-winter replay. It seems to be gone now.
    ps The dog seems to be having a blast.

    • Florin, thank you – and sorry you had the same mini-winter too… We have sun today though and the snow is gone – And Totti and Milo loved it…their coats are the thickest kind and that makes winter their best season!

  9. April – thou art unfair ! We laughed at what happened on your first day . . . you did not have to tease and test ys and send the snow !
