Snow in May!

The month of April in this corner of Canada has been glorious.... warm summerlike temperatures and spring flowers and leaves bursting forth a couple of weeks earlier than usual. It's been Tshirts and shorts weather.
But May so far? Hmmm... it's been nothing but torrents of rain, strong winds, sleet, hail, and this morning I woke up to the "S word".... yes, that "S word"..... S.N.O.W!

Not a couple of feet of snow, like they are enduring a couple of hundred k north of here, but S.N.O.W nontheless! And in the merry month of May too! It shouldn't be allowed.

Of couse I went outside in my jammies with my camera and froze my toes.

Perhaps this is what is meant by frozen rhubarb.

And I'd like to wish all you mums out in blogland a Happy Mother's Day. Enjoy your breakfast in bed, the bouquets of flowers, the chocolates, the hugs from your children, the special lunch, the dinner with the family, whatever and however you celebrate. Mothers are very special people. Enjoy your special day!

Happy Mum's day Shammie!! Despite the snow, wow, I can't believe it! Have a great day and thank you for the mom's day wishes, too. You know how much I love being an auntie! If you come to SF I promise I'll take you to all the beautiful places and we'll watch the sunset under the golden gate bridge...as long as it's not foggy! :)

Sorry you got the S-word, Shammie. We were spared but it sure is cold. Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. :)

We'll take the torrents of rain if you like and you can have more of our sunshine.

Belated Happy Mother's Day!

I've been as bad as you with blogging recently. Thanks for your comments though, and I shall take great delight in telling the world once the little one arrives. It is still a baby rather than a boy or girl, so all very exciting.

Not so keen on seeing that snow in May!!

Saw a few flakes down here a few days ago, but that was the extent of it. Latest I ever recall it snowing here was May 20th, about thirty years ago. Bizarre.

Love seeing snow... maybe because I am from a tropical country...

Thanks for your nice comment about the Mother's Day! A belated Happy Mother's Day to you too!

Thanks for dropping by Shammie. Sorry the comment disappeared. Our weather is crazy here too in "Sunny" California.
It rained all over our BBQ yeasterday but we stayed inside all warm and cozy. Today there is snow in the mountains about an hour from our home and we have got the wind and rain. What's up with May and Spring???

Oh dear! We had snow too!

We are still so cold here in Holland, Sham, hovering in the high 40s to low 50s. When will it get warm? The funny thing is that it got up to 70 a couple of the days when I was away in Atlanta. Go figure!

I guess the nice weather (temporarily?) left many of us!

You froze your toes? That's 'cause you need to wear jammies that have feet. I gotta get me some of those.
