Is This March and not May?

Happy Friday to you! I hope you had a great week and are looking forward to the weekend. If I didn't know we were in the middle of May, the safe time to plant(anytime after Mother's Day is considered safe), I'd swear we are in the middle of March. The entire U.S. is getting such weird weather and here in Colorado we are too. I do remember one year that it snowed this late in May, but it seemed like it melted quickly. Wednesday the rain was coming down in buckets and continued through the night until yesterday morning. Around 10:00 a.m.  yesterday it started to snow-not just a light dusting, but a huge amount with large flakes. It is a wet snow which makes shoveling it more strenuous. The first photo was yesterday afternoon; I'm thankful that we aren't having flooding, though there are flood warnings out for areas of our town. We spent the entire day inside yesterday~I was looking at meals for our trip to South Dakota.

This is a photo I took this morning because I thought the ribbons of snow hanging from our pergola is interesting. I've never seen anything like it during the three years we've lived here.

Thankfully, the snow is supposed to stop by noon today and rain to begin this afternoon. I sure hope so, as our friends from Ca. are coming in tomorrow.
I hope that if your area is having bad weather, that you will be safe and stay inside.  We have friends in Tennessee right now and there is massive flooding there.  Northern California is having wonderful spring like weather.


  1. Noreen, OMgosh...I can't believe it. I hope that melts real fast. Your flowers !! Our weather is crazy. It's to rain here for a couple more days. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  2. Hard to believe you have all that snow and we have temps in the 70s and a deluge of rain!!! At least all the moisture will be good for the trees and plants.

  3. Wow that is really crazy weather! Oh my goodness, that is wild. I've seen snow make ribbons like that on fences with a melt/thaw cycle, but how unusual to do it in MAY! Hope the weather clears up for your friends coming in from CA, that will be a shock for them to experience! Hugs :)
