Saturday Snapshot: March Madness

If this daffodil can hang in there, well, so can I.
Crazy spring weather here in northern California. This year's version is snow-covered and includes power outages. I haven't ridden my bike since Thanksgiving Day. Really. The silver lining I suppose, is that when we finally do get spring weather, I will be filled with gratitude (and on my bike). Maybe next week...?

As disappointing as the weather has been lately, it's nothing compared to what people are enduring in Japan. What's happened there puts everything in perspective.

Check out all the other Saturday Snapshots here.

Poor little daffodil. But it does make a pretty photo.

Mine have just started poking up some green. Seems like there is weird weather everywhere the past two years.

Oh, that is a gorgeous photo, even though the poor flower is decked out in snow.

I think we're all hoping for spring, and where I live, signs of spring show up every now and then...thanks for visiting my blog.

I love the colors, but that poor flower looks very sad under all that snow! :) Great photo!

That reminds me of our years in North Carolina. We'd have a burst of early spring flowers only to be met with a late spring frost. I always felt so bad for the poor blooms!

That is quite poetic.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping at my blog.

I feel a little like that daffodil after getting 11 inches dumped on me last Tuesday. I'm really tired of winter!

Lee said...

Angie - Me, too. I'm tired of winter.

I really like this one...the irony of spring.

Nice shot. The poor thing, though. It was ready for spring, but the weather didn't cooperate. If I had daffodils, they'd still be under at least a foot of snow. Spring can't come fast enough for me.
