Not yet

For weeks now, other bloggers have been posting photos of flowers blooming in their yards, and all the photos have given me a false sense of hope. When I went out in the early morning with my camera to see if I could find any bit of colour in my own yard, the only thing I found to photograph was an overturned canoe, covered with snow.

Believe me, I've got nothing blooming in my yard...and there are still piles of snow.

Linda said...

Is that new snow? Sheesh. I'd be going crazy if I were there!

jo(e) said...

Yeah, we've had new snow on the ground every morning for about a week now. It's spring snow, though, and melts during the day.

Opal said...

Unfortunately we didn't have too much snow this winter. The flowers in my flower garden are beautiful. :-)

Girl said...

No flowers yet...but apparentlythe hibernators are getting restless!!

BeachMama said...

You are having similar weather that we are. Here's hoping that the snow stops soon. I just don't want it here anymore.

Ampersand said...

I feel for you! But looking at the pictures of where you live, I think perhaps the climate is compensated for by the beauty :).

Just got back from a two week vacation from the Philippines. I was suprised that it feels more winter than spring. I still like the photo you took. Kayni

But it really is a lovely shade of red at least...?

Seeking Solace said...

We still have snow in some spots in my neck of the woods too.

Chip said...

Hey come on, it's only April! I remember piles of snow on the ground on June 1!

listmaker said...

I'm surprised we're that much ahead of you. I've had a few flowers blooming for the past couple of weeks, although I've sometimes had to search for them under the snow.

niobe said...

New snow? And here I was complaining that it wasn't warm enough to go out without a coat. I'm shivering in sympathy.

cinnamon gurl said...

It's SO frustrating, isn't it? I love the photo though.

Not so little sister said...

I'm with you. We've got nada. And we're supposed to get another storm on Thursday. Oh joy!

Sarah Sometimes said...

okay, that's just too much snow!

Kyla said...

Well, its probably not AS covered as it was a month ago. That is something, right?

julieunplugged said...

Sucks, doesn't it? We finally have a few tulips standing up again after the wintry blast and today... rain. Ugh.

Yankee T said...

I hate winter.

Rana said...

*laughs*

But at least it's a beautiful canoe, no?

Horace said...

And seriously, it's not like you won't be rubbing in your beautiful camping weather all summer while the rest of the world sweats it out.

(Meanwhile, we're still getting regular flurries this far south)

jo(e) said...

Horace: Oh, it's true. I could never live in the south. I love summer weather that is comfortable ....

Teri said...

We HAD flowers. They are now buried under inches of heavy, wet snow.

mindspin said...

Nothing promises summer like a red canoe.

We had warm and then cold again, and the cold coming after the warm killed back spring for a while.

Patti said...

I would love to give you some crocus, snowdrops, and spring beauties. All blooming in my yard, even though the snow is not all the way gone.

Danny said...

No color? But wait, what's that I see next to the 7th tree on the left--oh, wait; never mind. It's just a smudge on my monitor.

Here in CA, green begins with the first rains of winter. Now leaves are on the trees, and it's beautiful. I've got photos on my blog if you're interested. But don't feel bad--come summer, the rains stop, and everything turns brown. And I NEVER get to see the beauty of snow in my backyard.
