It's April in Minnesota!

Winter is back! But, of course, one should be grateful for the fact that it isn't a blizzard, which was supposed to hit southern Minnesota.

The view from our deck is just a lovely, soft snowfall that clings beautifully to the trees. Juxtaposing this is the Spring song of returning birds. What a wonderful combination!

And to think I contemplated raking last week.

Very pretty. Winter also returns to us tomorrow night with snow in the forecast.

Kay, if you are wondering who Jim is, it is me! I forgot to switch from his account to mine before I left a comment.

We're also get 1-3" of the "stuff", here in Central WI. The birds just walk around kind of lost. 40's for next week though.

The blizzard never arrived as predicted here in Northern Iowa. Thanks for the observation about the birds singing in spite of the snow.

We were at our cabin in Stone Lake and were surprised to see the snow when we got back into town!

Wow - I can't believe it's April and you're still getting snow! We have tulips and T-shirt weather right now - would you like to swap?
