sleepy, snowy saturday

remember, folks--it's the middle of april in southern missouri

ed catches a cuddly nap on mom's lap by the woodstove, while . . .snow whirls down around our barn . . .
the irises and surprise lilies look furry disappointed (mom even heard the robins saying bad words), an'
the poor trees that suffered so in the ice storm have snowy insults piled upon injuries, as they struggle to put out some greenery despite their losses.
sadly, there are lotsa trees in a 50 mile swath all along from oklahoma/kansas right through missouri that look like these because of the january 15th ice storm. *sigh* mom says her druid is hurtin'. we din't know she had one, but we feel sorry for him. lotsa fev-vers won't haf places to live this summer.

Oh no! Look at all that cold snow. :( I hope it melts quickly and that it warms up for you soon. I am very happy we only had one week of snow this past winter in Munich.

Stay warm!

I don't know where in SW MO you are, but you must be close to me. We're just half hour South of Branson, MO. IT's be an odd winter for sure! And now Spring is flaky, too! I hope you all stayed warm!

I am very sad for those cold flowers and trees. They wanted to be green.

Ed, you are smart to nap by the woodstove when it is so cold out! You look sleepy!

Hi there, you magnificent Meowers! Thanks you so very much for cheering me on during my vet ordeals this week. Now if I can just get through having toxic stuff put in my ears & down my throat, everything will be cool again.

Mr Winter just does not want to give it up this year. We want Miss Spring to be here, warm, sunny, birdies singing. ::sigh::

Winter just doesn't want to quit. We got some more snow here yesterday, too, but it mostly melted today. I hope it warms up soon, for all of us.

Soooooooooo sick of snow and cold and rain here in K.C. I miss my sun and my warn breezes. Sigh...

Mattingly said...

Wow. The weather sure is crazy. We are quite north from you and only got rain. I really hope your trees and flowers recover. It must be terrible there if the birdies are saying bad words!

We are furry sorry you have so much snow and cold, and feel bad for the trees and flowers :(
The wind is blowing so hard at our house that trees are falling down.

Hope Spring will come soon for us all!
