Check out my Weather Pixie; yes, it is snowing and 21 degrees. So much for spring. The daffodils that I picked last week are probably the only ones I will have because all the others are not only lying flat from the cold, but now buried in snow. It will be interesting to see what happens to the bluebells that I naturalized on the edge of the woods. How ironic and unfortunate that this freak weather had to arrive at the same time as the UN report on climate change, since it makes sceptics reluctant to believe there is a problem.

Thanks everyone for kind words about my quilt. It is now finished and blocked, just waiting for the label and sleeve. I'm now off to church to hide Easter eggs--happy Easter everyone.

Spring is very slow in arriving here too. Happy Easter.

Yep, Pixie is wearing her parka, alright. Such weather! TV showed the Cleveland Indians fans sitting bundled up in the snow at the game. Now that's altruism for ya.

brrr, we are cold here too! Rain for 2 days straight but only for the weekend. We actually have a snow/sleet forecast here in umm, not so sunny Houston!

The worst April Fool's joke my mom ever played on me back in Michigan was one year she woke me for school saying, "Dress warmly; it's snowing outside!" "Oh no..." I groaned. But when I went to my window to see, all was green and gold like it should be on an April morning.

Except for you it is no joke! My condolences....

We're shivering with you here in Virginia. We woke with 1.5 inches of snow and it's supposed to get blow freezing tonight - bye bye spring flowers!

Happy Easter, Kay. It is really cold here as well.

I was noticing that too - that everytime they talk about global warming, it gets really cold. I think the last three times the news mentioned global warming, it got cold. Very strange.
