Sunshine After the Snow! February 19, 2021

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, February 19, 2021
We had freezing rain and sleet at the beginning of the week, then snow mid-week. But today we have sunshine! Above freezing temperatures are in the weekend forecast, but it may take longer to melt because under the snow is a layer of ice!

Be careful, stay safe, keep warm!
And please pray for those whose weather is worse than ours

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, February 14, 2021
Yesterday's forecast was for "wintery mix" so I went outside to look for blooms before it started. The below freezing temperatures and wind had already knocked down the only Daffodil brave enough to open.

The Hellebores are blooming, but they do not look happy about the colder-than-usual weather.

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, February 15, 2021
This is the view from my porch this morning, looking down my driveway towards the road. We had freezing rain overnight. It is 22F (-5C) and sleeting now at 9:00am, with snow forecast for later in the day.
I just keep telling myself, "Spring is coming! Spring is coming!"

Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, February 5, 2021
Northern Mockingbirds, mimus polyglottos, have the amazing ability to repeat sounds that they frequently hear, making their songs long and varied.

I hope you have a happy day!
