Spring and Then Winter

I was so excited when I found some tulips coming up already!

We’ve had an unusually mild winter this year, with less than half our average snowfall. These tulips came up about a month early, but I’m not complaining. I am ready for gardening season, especially since I wasn’t into it last year with my usual zest.

To my surprise, I was excited to wake up to a winter wonderland scene this morning!

I think about 4-5 inches of snow fell overnight.

It was falling in really huge fluffy snowflakes, coating every single branch and twig, making for great practice with my new camera.

What I really want to be able to do with my fancy camera is to take closeups of interesting things I find in our gardens and on the trails.

Until our flowers come back to life, I am practicing on other things throughout our yard, such as these conifer branches.

Such a beautiful scene looking out the windows today.

I will definitely be going back outside to play some more.

  • Beautiful! I love a gentle snowfall:) You’re having fun with the new camera, huh?

  • You were able to get some great photos with that new camera.

  • Snow!!! Having a good ole’ time with that Rebel I see, good for you Terri!

    My tulips are coming up too;)

  • Same here. It snowed here today and is snowing now. I am ready for spring!!!

  • Hi Terri! That looks really beautiful but I think that sence of spring was better. I happy for you if you had mild winter – we have had the rest of your winter. Normally here is colder and rainy during the January and part of the February. This year it has been raining since November and still doesn’t seem to stop. So boring and expencive, too. Today is lovely sunny day, so it means lots of laundry and coffee outside!
    I wish you wonderful weekend with your new camera!

  • Beautiful pics, Terri!
    Thanks for sharing.

  • Beautiful photos, Terri! We haven’t had even a fraction of the snow that we got last year. In fact, we’ve only had two snow storms! They lasted two separate weekends. So not like last year at all!

    Have fun taking photos… I always do!!

  • Sorry I’m so late to comment – wow, the pictures are gorgeous and so inviting – makes me want to make a snow angel and get all chilly and rosy cheeked – and then go back indoors for a nice warming hot chocolate. I’m sure the tulips will survive – I’m pretty sure the same thing happened last year when things had just begun to bloom. I hope your new camera is easy to get to grips with and fun to use.

  • Isn’t this spring weather crazy!? We also have bulbs popping up and trees blooming, and yesterday we had snow, and snow/rain. Very interesting….. Thanks for sharing yours!

  • How pretty! We didn’t get any snow this winter and I have to say I’m a bit bummed out. I love waking up to a winter wonderland and it looks like it will be another year before I get the chance. 😦
