Spring in Iowa????


Wednesday it was in the 50s
Thursday it snowed
Friday was cool, in the higher 30s, and the snow melted
Saturday it was gorgeous-high 60s
Today is wet-snow predicted north of here
The rest of the week is supposed to be wet

My son gets married in less than two weeks. I am not ready for the onslaught of relatives!

The photo is a picture of my first blooms-crocus peeking out of the leaves that don't fall until late winter/early spring. I need to rake!

I am having withdrawal from art!

Arent these crocuses beautiful peeping out through the leaves...what a find in your garden!
Shame you had to pull out of the bird tota swap, but I can understand how busy you must be with all your relatives about to descend upon you!!!
Maybe we can swap a bird or two later? When the wedding is over and after I have done my art retreat maybe.

I love to see the new growth struggling up through the old dead leaves...it's so poetic!!

I can imagine you are having art withdrawal if you are preparing for relatives and houseguests to descend!! Hope the wedding is wonderful (I'm sure it will be) and you manage to stay calm!

Oh, the sweet crocuses. They are such a welcome sight especially this year. I'll be thinking of you as you prepare for the onslaught of relatives. I hope once the day arrives, Chris, that you thoroughly enjoy it. Be watching your mailbox!!
