A Japanese textile and many of my blue and white ceramics all live on the dresser in the former guest room. Now it's my studio so I get to enjoy them daily.

Looking at the author's photo, it is hard to believe what a strange and hard life she had. I could manage the book but no way I'd go see a movie of it!

we have tours of our garden scheduled for late july and early aug. and all I keep thinking about is drought; wondering if we will go from all this moisture to not enough.

I'm trying to plan a vacation with my sisters and they are on my case to give them some dates. This snow has me all off schedule like summer is 6 months aways instead of 6 weeks or so.

I think Mark took those pix around 4 pm and it was still snowing at 10 pm, so everything is much more thickly coated this morning. But with the sun on everything it is glittering and gorgeous right now. But we are so ready for it to melt away.

Luckily it looks like the temps are going to be between 50 and 60 starting tomorrow and for the next ten days. That should make it all disappear quickly. At least that is what I am counting on. They sent out a notice after I posted that the WHPS program was cancelled. So at least I didn't miss it personally.

You are so right about birdsong and how odd it all made it seem. One of the biggest and certainly prettiest snows of the whole season. What I also noticed was the light was different than in winter and it was still light out at 8 pm because it's spring!

Our typical snowfall in Madison is around 50 inches and I think in Erie it is usually around 75. This is way beyond normal. I know they have had 100 inches in Buffalo and we had that in Madison once. But 200 in an urban area is unheard of. The next problem will be flooding from melting snow. I think this is the last hurrah for winter. But it is certainly one for the books.

Snowing again. According to a story I just blogged about we are not as bad off as some places winter weather-wise.

We never started to get any real snowfall until Feb. so I think that's one reason it feels like it has gone on forever.

Hope this is not a sign of climate change and a taste of future April weather.

Our real problem is that we had hardly any snow from Nov.-Jan. and it has all come since Feb. arriving just when we thought it was about over.

Luckily I spent the entire day Saturday with friends at an all-day garden symposium that was fabulous. So that helped mitigate this crazy weather.

Seems like the weather is not what we are expecting no matter where we are. I am going to an all day garden symposium and it is in the low 30s, very windy and rainy and maybe freezing rain and here it is the middle of April!!!

It was so lovely yesterday but pretty nasty today and worse tomorrow. They are forecasting freezing rain but I am hoping it misses us. I am going with friends to an all day garden symposium and looking forward to lots of lovely conversation and garden photos. I'm afraid we are back to a holding pattern in weather again.

I think picking a few signs that you will actually notice from year to year is the critical thing. That and keeping some kind of record. The problem with my written journals is that you can't search them like the blog! I think lots of gardeners, hikers etc. all do this just may not realize it is a process that goes beyond their personal notice.

Wed. and Thurs. were nice enough that I worked in the garden both afternoons. Today is rainy and cold and freezing rain forecast for the weekend. I did see things pushing up which was very nice. Sure animated the garden when critters return.

It is a great magazine and you are certainly right that we all have our own lists. Our pond finally opened all the way yesterday, just about a week later than the prior latest date.

It's going to be interesting to see how this all plays out. Of course, I hope it means a progressive, intelligent person will win that seat in the fall.

That sounds like you are speaking in code. Of course, you actually are. Gotta be from here to be in the know.

It will probably be a killer race now with lots of infighting to be the candidate to replace Ryan. There is a working class guy who ran against him before but I bet he may get pushed aside as this new race shapes up.

There is a Dylan song — "The Hour that the Ship Comes In" — about the bad guys getting what's coming to them, if I am interpreting it correctly. That's how I picture the Dallet win and now this.
