Hello April!


April 3 2016 (2)

Well, I DID say that I missed the snow this year.

I just wish someone would have heard me in December.

It sure is pretty though.

  5. LOL! I always hope for a stop-the-city snowstorm and was getting a bit uneasy when winter seemed to hang on so long into March! I love the composition of the birdhouse against the snowy backdrop. And that slight pop of color is very nice. Now….on to spring blossoms!!

  6. Now I’ve found out how to comment, I’m catching up on these lovely snow scenes! I know what you mean about getting snow in winter and preferably not in spring! We had late snow here too, but since then, our spring flowers have been coming through in-between the March winds and frequent April showers!
    I love that little red bird house, such elegance, and of course the pretty bridge!
    I’ve no idea why my comments are accompanied by an empty circle instead of a proper icon. Perhaps you know?

  7. Lovely shots. I know it often snows in April in the east and midwest but I remember how bummed I would be when it did back when I lived there so it’s good you appreciate it 🙂

  8. We never have much winter, but it pretty much skipped us this year. I think you got ours, plus some! I hope spring arrives for you soon!

  9. Better late than never, isn’t that so?!… At least you were able to capture some gorgous photos. Bur, yes, it does feel like mid-winter.

  10. Lisa – I absolutely love the bird house photograph. Stunning!

  11. This snow is actually quite enchanting Lisa, and perfectly captured with the birdhouse and bridge covered in white, quiet flakes. It’s comforting to know it will soon be gone. Spring and warmth are surely not far away. Have a lovely weekend!!

  12. One would hope winter would stop its never ending slinky-styled weather. On the other hand we have photos like your’s and we think all is well in the world.

  13. Hi Lisa,
    this is not really fine to have snow in April. Maybe it was a joke for the first day of the month (April fool).
    Your photo of the bridge with the snow is wonderful !
    Best regards, Synnöve

  16. I guess you got an April’s fool’s day snow! it is lovely! I love the little bridge with the rocks underneath it. I imagine soon the snow will all melt and you will finally have your Spring.

  17. How pretty, Lisa! I do love the red bird house. Such a beautiful contrast to the falling snow. You know, the weather has been unpredictable here, too–hot one day, snowing the next! Have a lovely week ahead, my friend! xo

  18. Your April looks like ours – we had just a dusting yesterday morning, but it’s been snowing since I woke up this morning and doesn’t look to be letting up any time soon. It’s very light, though…only perhaps an inch of accumulation in the past 5 or 6 hours, not even very photogenic snow at that. Your photos are gorgeous! I especially love that first one with its little touch of red for contrast.

  21. Very unusual but incredibly beautiful. I like these photos especially with a bird house. It stands out so beautifully with all the snow on the trees.

    Wish you a nice week Lisa!

  22. Oh, no….although I think NE Oregon has had that happen more than once. This year, we seem to have escaped. I just saw the extended weather forecast which says we’ll have “above average” temperatures this month. I like it, but I know it’s not good for the land long-term. Hope the “clipper” moves out as quickly as it came! (And you’re correct—it is pretty!)

  28. Oh goodness that isn’t fair but as you said it is beautiful, nothing like a fresh snow to photograph. Now you have your Christmas cards images ready for 2016. Done and now get ready for spring hopefully.

  29. Oooooh Lisa, it is so beautiful!! The birdhouse image is just picture perfect!! Enjoy it, you will blink and it will melt right off, with no clean up required (fingers crossed)!!!! So far it’s been beautiful here in Washington, we really lucked out!! Going to see the cherry blossoms today, what’s left of them!!
