What a difference a week makes

We really enjoyed the weather in the latter part of March and beginning of April. The daffodils and hyacinths in our yard bloomed and the irises started really growing. They must be propagating nicely in my yard; I basically tossed a few bulbs in the front bed a few years ago without really burying them well. I can see tons of them coming up though! It was nice to get outside and do a little yard work. The girls enjoyed it too; here they are on Palm Sunday:

On Good Friday, the bottom dropped out. By the end of the day on Easter, we got almost a foot of snow! Northeast Ohio saw anywhere from a dusting to almost 3 FEET of it. We didn't get to go to Grandma's for Easter dinner; it was canceled so nobody would have to travel. Just amazing. Here are my lovelies in about the same spot in the yard, one week later:

And here is our entrance:

Oh Liz, the juxtaposition of those two pictures is hilarious! And although we didn't have as much snow as you did, the fact remains that on Easter Sunday, we were able to do our egg hunt in short sleeves, but less than a week later, we had snow on the ground. Bah!

Great pictures! Those icicles look a little intimidating, but otherwise, brrrrr!
