Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Ice Ice Baby...................................

So we went from 65 degrees at the beginning of the week to this. Today is Friday and we have a snow day. Schools are shut and roads are bad. Ice. Snow. Rain. Thunder. All this morning. We awoke to rain on top of the snow that came last night. This is Michigan.

It looks so pretty, but causes so many problems when it is so heavy. The ploughs and sanders have been very busy. Just as well because the roads are ice with a layer of wet snow. This stuff does not last long though so there is some hope.

Want to sit awhile? I thought not.

The buds are frozen but will be OK. Better to stop them from popping now than have them freeze later.

I put out bird food but I think they will wait till it has thawed a bit.

No bird wants to sit on that stuff.
So I asked Brea if she wanted to go out. She wagged her tail but said no.

Boots heard and said "I may want to go out"

"Just kidding, I am not going out there today"

I don't blame either one, although they all went out at some point but came right in to their heating pad and blankets.

Stay safe out there.

We sometimes get the worst storms in March. Hard to believe we were outside yesterday with no coats on. Yup. That's Michigan for ya. May get to try snow shoeing after all.

Oh, wow! It looks gorgeous, and I would love to go and take photographs like you, but not for long. Stay warm!

Wow, Janice what a marvellous Blog! I am enthralled, you definitely have a marvellous Novella on here alone! I am sad you are so far away across The Pond as I would have loved us to meet up at the Book Signing in Houghton Regis on Saturday! You are indeed a great photographer and writer. I love it all!
