Is it Spring? Is it Winter?

Mother Nature came out and waved her magic weather wand and zapped our poor flowering trees. Now the beautiful pink cherry trees are sort of a dull tan color. The Bradford Pear tree blooms are long gone. The Dogwood had just started to bloom so only time will tell on those. The Redbuds are still quite beautiful but they had been blooming for over a week so I guess they were safe.

I pass this house on my way to work. These two beautiful cherry trees. were a beautiful pink color just a few days ago.

We had a really cold weekend. It was beautiful and sunny but oh so cold. My sister and I went for a long ride on Saturday. She hasn’t been out of the house much, except for doctor appointments, since she started Chemo treatments in January. We drove a lot of the old backroads where we grew up and went to elementary school. We traced our old bus route. It was so much fun looking at our old house and seeing familiar and not so familiar things. Lots of changes in some areas.

Most of the weekend I knitted and crocheted on the temperature blanket. I listened to an audiobook while I crocheted. It was very peaceful. My work has been a little crazy. We are in the middle of construction on a new building on the property and it is something every single day. So some downtime over the weekend was really nice. I am glad to be doing something productive I have been very unmotivated lately.

I saw these two in my backyard yesterday.

So spring or winter it has been a beautiful time. And before you know it the hot humid summer weather will be here. I guess we should just enjoy it day by day. How have you been?

Always remember

Love your day your way!!!!

One thought on “Is it Spring? Is it Winter?

  1. Mother Nature is just not sure what she wants to do this year. Hopefully all the plants and trees will adapt and do their thing beautifully as usual. Maybe double the beauty next spring. The calandar says Spring, but as I look out of my window, it is raining, then sleeting and then snowing. Back to rain and repeat. The wind is very strong today, too. Glad to hear that you have been able to get some crafty time in. It is always a good day when you can relax and create. All of your photos are beautiful. Sounds like you and your sister had a wonderful outing together. So nice.
