Snow or sun: Happy Mother’s Day!

Snow on Mothers Day in Fort Collins - 5/10/14 snowy peony snowy purpleI had every intention of ‘sleeping in’ on Mother’s Day. Sleeping in means 7:30 a.m. or so. However, at 6:15 when I lifted my head from my pillow I saw one thing – the branches of my tree bent over. No dallying for me… I flew out of bed and into warm winter clothes. It was snowing – the wet heavy snow that is often the case in April and May snow in Colorado. The weight of the snow lands on the branches that are just budding out they break and are ruined forever…

So, after knocking snow off trees, bushes, flowers and tables – I walked around the neighborhood. When I finished my exploration, I was soaked! My heavy winter coat and ski gloves were no match for this weather.

A hot cup of tea, Sunday Morning CBS, the Sunday paper and soon it will be time to make my rounds again and free the branches and trees of the snow that continues to fall.

Happy Mother’s Day to all my sisters, cousins, friends, nieces, neighbors, fellow bloggers and to all those wonderful men who step in and fill the mother role when needed. And a special hello to my long departed Mom (aka Ma).

Blessings!

  1. Woke to more snow falling on Monday morning. Oh my. It’s time for me to give the trees one more shake. I had to clear them 4x yesterday due to the weight of the continuously falling snow!

  2. Crazy weather and yet, I was expecting ONE last snow. It’s hard to have 80 degree weather one weekend followed by a 5 in snow fall the following one! Love it!
