Spring has, wait, when is it?

At three a.m., I woke with a wicked bad headache.  I took two Excederine and fell back to sleep.  This morning I saw why I had the headache. 

Here are some beautiful spring pictures of our little brick house:

You can almost see my tulips there in the...oh, wait...nevermind, they are under two inches of snow.

I almost planted my grape vines this last weekend, but decided against it. I almost planted my tomatoes; almost ignored the advice of the locals who have warned that we must wait until Memorial Day to plant warm weather crops. I have been trying to be responsible post surgery though, and decided to wait until the full six weeks had passed.  But surely I could plant one plat without overdoing it...
In the last picture, you can almost see the lump that was once my basil.  It is now hiding, black and dead under that snow right in the bend of this flower bed. *sigh*

In August when it is 104 degrees, I am going to look back on this time with longing, I'm sure. 
Right now though, I am cursing the cold, the snow, the lack of a greenhouse, and blackened basil.


  1. It's supposed to be 70 degrees in Provo today. How does that compute? Oh, yeah did I tell you Jim and I are coming for the 4th if that's still ok? NO SNOW though.

  2. Rub it in. Why don't you guys just three-way me and talk about all the fun you're going to have while I listen in???? :-<

  3. Excellent. Can't wait to see you Mom. We will have the time of our lives here...just the two of us...having fun...without anyone and your favorite child...

    On the other hand, I just heard this morning that there isn't a month in the year that they haven't recorded snow up Fairview maybe you should pack a sweater just in case.
