Zigs, it's such a beautiful view, you have so much space there! I imagine how wonderful it must look during springtime when everything is in bloom:D

Spring seems a way off at the moment Claudine, its snowing again now.

Here's a few spoilers of the spring around here:) Give us something to look foward to.

Oooooo...now I miss spring even more, Zigs:p . I love the first picture - it's so green. The mill looks wonderful, I wish we had something like this in my area. And the cows are adorable, they look like they were sniffing something:p

Oh, this mill is really lovely:D . And I love these little plants poking through the snow. I hope I'll see something like this in my area soon. Maybe I should dig in the snow to look for them:( It's -6c today. I heard tomorrow night it will be -15c:eek::eek:

Gorgeous pictures! And, I am grateful we have not had snow here to speak of this winter. Last year we sure did and I was snowed in for about a week. Fortunately the landlord has four wheel drive and was kind enough to take me to the grocery store before the cupboard got too bare.

Seeing snow all over the ground can be a lovely site but can cause major problems if you have to go to work in that kind of weather. I live in Atlanta, GA so fortunately we don't get that much snow. When we do, people lose their minds. If snow is even predicted, the stores are immediately packed with people buying bread and canned goods, as if they are going to be snowed in for weeks. We might get a few flakes and that's the end of it. Occasionally, about once every 2-3 winters, we will get one mini-major snow storm, where businesses and schools may shut down for a few days, but that's only once every so often.

Sorry, I'd rather see the snow on TV or in magazines, don't care to see it outside my window and in the streets, except, once every couple of years.

I confess, I am still pondering if there is time to do my garden winterizing, LOL! Last autumn there was about a month of bad weather right when I otherwise would have done it (compost work, bed cleanup, etc.) And then I kept putting it off for one reason or another and now, well, this may be one year the seasons simply have to proceed on their own without my interaction in the processes. That happens sometimes and I have not found that it causes huge problems. And, so far here, no snow. Maybe next week....

I'm so glad our snow is about melted. I'm so ready for spring. We had freezing rain today. It was supposed to get warm enough to thaw anything that froze early but the temps never got that high so everything is still icy.

I've heard we are going to have a few warmer days here, in middle Europe - it's around 0c now and it's possible it will be even warmer soon - but after that, according to the weather forecast, it will be freezing again. Spring! I miss you!!!

I lived in a cold area of the US for the first half of my life, I moved out of the snow belt as soon as I could because I hate being cold. I was out this morning waiting on a bus, the wind was blowing making it feel even colder than it was. It is 34 degrees now but with the wind it feels like it is in the 20's.

It takes a strong constitution to take the severe cold area's where it is below zero. Don't stop moving for long periods of time you will freeze, that's for sure.

It's snowing like crazy in my area:mad: . Can you believe it? It's March already, it shouldn't be like this. It's not very cold but there is so much snow here that it will probably never melt. Spring, were are you? We miss you!:(

Over here it's crazy too! We had a HUGE snowfall recently, and I'm talking late-ish March. Boy, do I hate Winnipeg. I want to get my summer going, already!

This is the view out of my bedroom window this morning.

Cat don't want to go out.
Yikes ! I am glad we are not looking like that out here. Early in March, it warmed up, and I was out playing in the yard and starting the first garden area. Then, a cold snap hit us, and we were back in the 20s at nite,and we had a dusting of snow even.
Today, it is a little warmer, and sunny, but windy. I think our weather will finally stay warm enough that my seeds should sprout, and we can get the garden rototilled.

My snow has already melted but it's really cold again: around -8c during the night. I'm starting to think that spring will never come. It's almost April, how is it possible that the weather is still so nasty?:(
