It's hard to think about Spring, when you have this in your front yard.

It's snowing AGAIN, we just got about 6 inches.  It's been snowing here once a week since Christmas, and it's really getting tiring.  Who can think of spring and tulips coming up when you have this in your front yard!  My husband and I shoveled the driveway and since our driveway is narrow, the only place we can put the snow is in our front yard.  This pile is over 4 feet tall,  check out the 4 foot fence in the foreground.  This pile has been growing since our blizzard on Dec. 26th.  During the blizzard we got about 3 feet of snow, and some of it melted, then we had 3 more snow storms to date.  This is the outerboroughs of New York, we don't get this much snow usually!
Thank goodness that we bought a new shovel yesterday. 
Shoveling the backyard driveway.  I think we need a snowblower!  LOL.
The garage does look good in the snow.  So pretty.  We are so lucky that we renovated the garage this summer, because all the heavy snow we've been getting would have definitely destroyed the old roof.
 Here is the driveway, all shoveled.  Glad to be done.
I'm really hating all this snow.   At least the trees look pretty.
 The Eastern Wahoo Seed bush looks happy also.
The grapevines in the snow.  I hope they will be okay come spring.  I hope this is the last snowstorm for awhile.  One can only dream!


  1. This has been a doozy of a winter. It's snowing again here in New England. We're due to get 9-12 for this one.

  2. I hear ya sister; I am so tired of it too! We had 30* weather yesterday and it was like a heat wave!

    Your grapevines should be just fine. Ours always seem ok after a rough winter.

  3. That is a lot of snow. I hear ya, hard to think warm thoughts with all that around.

  4. That's a LOT of snow! We were hoping for some, but got 4 inches of rain in 2 days instead LOL

  5. We never see that much snow here, even 6 inches at once would be a lot. I hope this is the last of it and it starts to melt.

  6. It's been a real old-fashioned winter here in central New York.

  7. You've had more snow than we have in Nebraska. I am always glad to have snow on the ground, because it insulates the perennials, and provides moisture. We're getting into the upper 30s and lower 40s for highs this week, so a lot of the snow is melting.

    Now, when April gets here, I hope there will be no signs of snow.

    Hang in there! (I remember you repairing the garage. It is a good thing you got that done.)

  8. Oh my! This storm has dumped a lot of snow on you. Luckily for us here in Maine, it looks like this one will be pulled out to sea before sharing too much. We are expected to get only another 1 to 3 inches. But that is on top of the 2.5 feet already on the ground. Will spring ever come?

  9. I think of Ottawa as having two faces: the one that is painted with a spare palette of grey, blue, black and white and the one that bursts forth into technicolour life. The two don't overlay well so I've just settled back into this reality knowing that one day we will transform.


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
