Having attempted to test our New England daughter's patience by posting pictures of our emerging Spring, while she still resides in the deep freeze, Mommie Nature decided that we needed a lesson in humility. So, she tossed a bit of the white fluffy stuff our way, coupled with some sub-freezing temperatures. And lo and behold, what did appear by the stuff below.
See, even the cardinals are annoyed.
and our koi's are not amused . . .
Nor is our mermaid
so we may have to wait a while longer before these guys show up . . .
and I suspect our cardinals could get huffy and leave for more hospitable climes if we are not careful.
In the meantime, we will have to be content with our little color splash here and there.
