Minor Setback – Situation Normal

As you can see, a few inches of snow fell today. Situation normal– April snowfall isn’t unusual here in New England. I expect the daffodils will perk back up tomorrow when all the white stuff melts. Have a great weekend!

    Same scene earlier this week in MN. The joys of living in the north!

    As I recall, spring snow’s the best snow. It’s pretty, it doesn’t really hurt anything, and it’s gone in two days rather than two month. Hooray!

  3. No snow to speak of in central Maine. A spitting of snow in the afternoon. None on the ground. Better yet, no wind. Funny how the areas in New England are so different.

  4. Vicki says:

    The daffodils must be very hardy, but I guess they have acclimatized to the occasional Spring snowfall.

    You even make the chilly setback look attractive, While it is only 6 degrees C here before sunrise, we can expect a mild summery day as autumn tends to be a betwixt and between season in South Africa.

    Yep….April can be fickle!

    A little different from the snow I slept on last night. Snow is Good

  8. Here in the UK, we had a twenty-minute snow flurry the other day, fascinating to watch!

  9. We received a few inches much of which melted already. Towards Worcester got much more than that. Even though it was melting I still did a little shoveling just to show the snow who’s boss. 🙂 Should add a bit more flow to your brook.

    Those late snowfalls don’t stick around too long. Poor daffodils though.

  11. After a couple of weeks of working outside, it was a little strange to see a snowstorm. The big plus was the moisture because we are in dire need of it. Now, it can be gone so we can get back to spring. 🙂

    makes for a pretty picture tho’. Waves good morning!

  13. Treah Pichette says:

    It’s SO discouraging though. We got a foot! I think the plants can take it better than us.

  14. lmachayes says:

    It looks exactly the same here in western Maine. Still snowing and so grateful that we finally got some much needed moisture.

    Grateful for the water, whatever form is arrives in. I think I heard the earth sigh in relief……

  16. maryjane678 says:

    Oh poor daffs! And poor you, just when you might have begun to think things were improving. Hope it melts quickly!

  17. Joanne says:

    Oh! I wasn’t expecting this, but doesn’t the yellow and green of the daffodils look beautiful against the snow? I’m pleased to hear they can cope with the sudden cold. 🙂

  18. The good thing is that is doesn’t last for long.

  19. Alice says:

    The daffodils just might be thinking: “ha, ha, snow, we were first!” Thanks for the water, mother Nature…we needed it…even if it came in flake form, in some places.

    I like how hardy the Spring Flowers are/have to be. Great pictures and hope it warms back up for you soon.

  21. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Daffs are tough aren’t they. Hope you get back to spring tomorrow.

  22. Kris P says:

    I’m glad you’re able to take that in stride!

  23. Karen Lang says:

    Just when you thought it was spring!!! 🌸🤔

  24. Widdershins says:

    Being a daff isn’t for sissies! 😀

  25. Oh … I’ve always said spring is a big tease! We got more snow here Thursday and Friday night.

  26. Irene says:

    Oh, no! Your snow pic suddenly made me appreciate our slightly warmer temps that much more. Sending some sunshine over your way. 😁

  27. Adele Brand says:

    Oh no! We don’t seem to be quite out of winter either. Still getting frosts and a bit of snow although daytime temperatures are supposed to reach 15c this week.

  28. Robin says:

    I love the way spring (autumn, too) looks in a brief snow. Lovely photos, Eliza. 🙂 We’re experiencing a typical NE Ohio spring with highs in the 80’s one day and snow/sleet the next. I think there IS some snow in the forecast this week.

  29. The snow melting quickly is the only good thing about April snow, even though the daffodils still look lovely against the snow. Our forecast has a chance of 1-3 inches of snow during the week and I hope they are wrong!!

  30. Cathy says:

    Hope it warms up again soon Eliza. We have had the coldest April on record I believe, but temperatures are very slowly rising.

  31. April here has had similar contrasts. Haven’t planted anything out yet! But bluebells are out now.
