This has been the coldest winter I can remember for a long time and I’m just so ready for it to be over, yet, I know we still have two more cold months to go for our neck of the woods.
My hubby asked me tonight to take some pictures of the ice and snow hanging off the roof of our house. I decided to share them along with some pictures I hope will bring beautiful spring thoughts to our minds and ward off some of the cold while we wait for that precious time of year called SPRING.
A lot of it melted today but there’s still a lot of weight on that new addition.
This doesn’t do it justice but it looks COLD!
It’s hanging over the edge of the roof about four feet.
This is about 22 inches in the deepest part.
There’s some serious icicles hanging from it too!
Icicles look like some kind of prehistoric weapon of the ice age!
Can you tell the depth of the snow on both sides of the walk off the porch?
Okay, enough snow and cold, think spring! Think spring! Think spring!
Apple blossoms speak spring!
Beauty of the blue skies and green grass!
Spring = Sap running from the sugar maples.
Spring = Gathering sugar sap
Spring = Opening the sugar house and cooking the syrup.
Spring = Puppy checking out the purple crocus-that is springtime!
Spring is definitely merkel hunting time.
Spring = Tilling the garden the first time!
Spring means warming up the potting shed.
Spring = Irises popping out of the ground.
Spring = Peach tree budding!
Of course, it couldn’t be spring without Papa and granddaughter hitting the spring gobbler trail!
Let’s really put on our concentration hats and get the season rolling!!
