It's hard to imagine global warming when we're hit with a series of spring storms here in Alberta. Don't you just hate these depressing storms?! I'm just glad I haven't taken my snow tires off yet. It's been nice and warm and sunny here - the trees are budding out, tulips are blossoming, grass is green, and then...wham...this morning we awoke to piles of snow and fierce howling winds. It was over by suppertime, but it'll take a few days for the snow to melt.
You'll have to excuse the quality of the following pictures taken in Sara's front yard - they were taken with my phone - but you get the idea!
Beautiful frosted tulips.
Rose bushes bowed down by the heavy wet snow.
Almost buried yellow tulip
Ditto - red tulip
And a final shot of the rose bushes.
Lloyd and I are off to Winnipeg tomorrow morning. Hopefully when we get back on Sunday it'll be spring again.
Welcome to my world. I've been married to my best friend and high school sweetheart, Lloyd, for more than 40 years now. We have seven grown-up children, seven children-in-law, and twenty grandchildren.
Because there are so many people in our immediate family, this blog will center around them, interspersed with postings about scrapbooking, friends, and travels.
Our home base is Edmonton, Alberta, Canada but we spend as much time as we can in Lethbridge, AB and Surprise, AZ.
I appreciate any and all comments you might like to make. Thanks for reading.
