It Snowed Yesterday

Monica: I would like to pretend that it was a dream. Mother Nature has been very tough on us this spring. We have been able to take Zoey out a few times when the weather has been tolerable. I’ve been able to take some pictures of Spring. It’s coming soon I hope.

purple lilacs

We have these beautiful lilacs that bloom around Mother’s Day which is mid-May. Charlie used to drive to his high school and pick a big bunch to give to his mother because those were her favorite flowers. They have a very intoxicating fragrance.

white lilacs

They also come in white.

Before it snowed and rained and was really windy we had beautiful magnolia trees.

and crabapple trees. Now the ground is littered with petals that blew off the trees and are stuck because of the rain.
fungi on a tree trunk

These mushrooms were growing on the trunk of a big tree. Maybe as a result of all of the rain we’ve had.

I hope we are done with snow for a while!

Before Winter Arrives

Monica: I thought I’d post some pictures of Fall color around my neighborhood.

Red orange tree
Red-orange leaves
Oak leaves

Of course we got our first snowfall this week and it’s been really cold all week. So I guess Fall is officially over.
