It’s Still Coming

The last weekend in February was warm.

Fifty plus degrees warm.

And sunny.

So sunny that two of us ended up sun burnt.

The snow melted, sandals and shorts were dug out of closets (because this is Wisconsin) and we all enjoyed the hint of things to come.

And then, on the first of March (because this is Wisconsin), it snowed.

A perfect, beautiful fluffy snow.  And people howled as if spring had been stolen from them.


It’s still coming.

Can’t you feel it?

The sun beams warm the patches of floor they fall on.

Can’t you see it?

The chickens are laying more eggs.

The forgotten tulip bulbs have sprouted in their bags.

Even the garlic can’t resist the call of spring as it sends out tiny green tendrils from it’s dark corner of the kitchen.

It’s not here yet.

It’s not time yet.

But a little snow fall can’t stop it.

It’s still coming.

    Can’t wait for this winter to be over! The weather really has been all over the place the last couple of weeks, one minute it’s warm, the next it’s freezing 😁 But spring is definitely on it’s way ☺️

    Loved the post… It felt warm and cozy just reading it 🙂

  3. I love Spring – my second daughter was born at this time of the year and I always think of her when I see the snowdrops. A great post!

      That would be such a nice time of year to have a baby. Mine were all winter/fall girls. We did lots of bundling up for a long time when they were born! 🙂

    oh adorable. About those tulips in the bag. Toss them in a pot, cover ’em with dirt (just not as much as if they had been in the ground) and they’ll do their thing this spring. Ask me how I know? 🙂

    Down Under, we’re at the opposite end of things – enjoying (or not) the last gasps of summer as Autumn peeks around the corner….
