Spring Will Be . . .

A wee bit late this year in many places including the VA eastern shore. 

The color for St. Patrick's Day is normally green. This year at The Frog & PenguINN and other places, it was white, except for the green garden hose.




It wasn't a big snow (as you can see) and was melted by early evening, but not before coating the daffodil buds and other plants in ice.


In early afternoon, it made for a pretty winter scene. 

As we enjoyed coffee and the last of the homemade soda bread. Grenville's recipe was delicious with no leftovers. Here's the baker at work on Sunday.

The snowfall brought lots of backyard visitors to the feeders . . . juncos, sparrows and a single female cardinal. 


Looks like the seasonal winter flags will stay out just a bit longer. Sure, the bird flag is Christmas-looking, but it fit the weather so far and has stayed out.
Hope your celebration was a good one — with or without snow.

Not much green in my area, either!

Great pictures! I'm ready to see lots of green anytime now. We've been without it for too long. Hope you have a great week. :)

Such beautiful photos of the snow (and ice). My son and his dad own a flag shop here in Smithfield. I could just spend HOURS in there, looking at all the different designs!

Oh boy - the winter that just will not end! The black and white collage is so creative! Your snowy afternoon looks pretty, even if it's hanging around a little too long...

Dorothy,
I love your vignettes. I don't know how to do them yet. Do You edit with PSE?

I love soda bread and I haven't made it in ages. Thanks for the reminder. It's the perfect thing with coffee- not too sweet.
We don't have much of a spring this year, either.
