Mother Nature Messing Around, MDP#24, and Peeks

daffodils blk_edited-1

Yesterday, as it was just starting to sprinkle, I went out to pick some Daffodils. They're just starting to bloom here and I wanted to get a bouquet in the house before the weather hit that the news was calling for... SNOW!

Yes, Mother Nature is messing with us... we had some beautiful "60's" days, could even sit out and drink iced tea! But, it's Spring, and I guess that means anything can happen!

Daffodils 1The small bouquet in my kitchen window... see the raindrops in the background?!

Daffodils 2

Several raindrops on the flowers too... I should have gone around the entire yard and picked them all.......but the rain was coming down harder and there were other things to do... I should have though....

oooo, I'm so sorry about your daffodils! Yikes! I always feel so offended when blooming flowers get snowed on LOL! It's snowing here too, but my tulips had only just begun popping out of the ground. Sigh...spring will come!

Such cute girls Dawn!

Dawn, your daffodil pictures are awesome, well, most of them. It is so sad :C to see that it snowed again and weighted those beauties all down. Oh how I wish I could send you all up there some sunshine. Your cards and the sneak peeks are amazing. I can't wat to see those two cards in full ;D. Have a great weekend!!! Hugs and blessings, Sabrina

Love the Mo card, love the sneak peeks. Not feelin' the love for the snow, though. We were fortunate to only have a few flurries and "wicked" cold weather.
