Frozen In Time!

The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month. ~Henry Van Dyke

Wow, the last week has been crazy! I thought Spring was here. I have been outside working in my flower beds, enjoying my flowers, until this last week!!
Then winter came sneeking back. It waited until the dark of night and then, quiet as a snowflake falling, dumped the snow, sleet and ice on us.
But at least where I live we didn't get the foot or more like some places.
And when I went outside the next morning it was kind of fun! The sleet and ice was a thin sheet frozen on top of the snow and every step I took it would crunch, crunch, crunch.......
I have never gotten over feeling like a kid when I get out in the snow!!
And then I went to check on my flowers. Oh my!!! I couldn't believe how neat they all were. They had been Frozen In Time!! It is just amazing what nature can do with a little rain and then a freezing night!! The drops of rain were frozen right where they fell!!
Here are some of the pictures I took......

Loved your photos. I wish I could take great pictures like that. I saw you were a member of Blooms and Veggies on Sparkpeople, so I thought I'd check out your blog. I'm really glad I did.
