What's Going On?

Today's blog post is weather-related. I'm having a hard time figuring things out. Tuesday we drove an hour north of Seattle to visit tulip fields, where the tulips are a little late to open, because (except for last Saturday, when it was almost 80 degrees F) we've had a cool, wet spring. The day was cloudy, cool, and we had a little rain, but we saw some pretty flowers.

Here's what it looks like outside my door tonight: This is my gazing globe which I usually can't see from here because the clump of lavender (now lying down) hides it.
These pink things are rhododendon buds which thought they should be opening, but instead got buried under a ton of wet snow.
This is our pink dogwood tree, which appeared to be ready to blossom any day. Now I'm not so sure.

At the end of this week, I'll be flying off to St. Louis to attend the first Spring Fling hosted by The Loopy Ewe. I'll be out of this weird snow and into conditions much more familiar to us west coast dwellers. There was an earthquake there today.

Wow your husband must REALLY love you a lot to;
A Take you to see those beautiful flowers on HIS B-Day
B Leave him alone with your dog & daughter while you knit your way to Nirvana in MO.
Men like that are hard to find, gee are you lucky!
