Happy March, everybody!

Ric, thanks! It was a cool (cold) pix rally.)
I've seen that decorative cabbage in Moscow, near one of the hotels there, last Fall. Interesting plant. Do you also use it for decorative purposes?

Kiska, yes, the tires were studded.) Do you like bike riding in Alaska? Now, I deem, it's the best transportation method
here in St.Pete with all those traffic jams.

Sugarweed, Ric mine was either this morning. Now it's evening and it got normal fast. What was that?

Marylyn, your weather's like summer!

35F

Guess what's going on with snow?

Wow, Yuri, great pics!
Today we're celebrating spring with a beautiful tradition, maybe you remember about "martisor". It's about men giving women small amulets for luck. The amulets are small crafts which many people are making at home and selling on the street, a week before March 1st. They are tied with a white - red thread.
You can read more here :

[HYPERLINK@www.meetromania.info]

See Martisoare , on the left, scroll down the page.

I bought some "martisoare " yesterday and I'm sending you each girl a "martisor" from me, with all my love, to bring you luck and joy!
Hugs,
Adina

Nice daytoday - got up to bout 70. Currently its 62F and Dyson Dark. The nasty two-night freeze we had did a number on the azaleas, but most everything else seems to have survived.

Expecting "seasonal" weather the next few days. (Highs upper 60s and lows in the 40s.)

My hellebores are just now getting down to business!

Looks like I may have to do a bit of mulching next weekend.
I took a little tour of the newly un-snowcovered yard.
Seems we have Tulips coming up fast... and Buds on the Daffs...
60's for tomorrow and Monday... Great eh?
Well now 'they' are saying teens for next weekend's lows.
So those buds will have to be protected.
Still no buds on the Hellebores... I'm thinking they froze off in the single digits early last month.
May be a no show this year...

We have bright sunshine today. The snow is melting.

65' out at present. Sun was shining earlier & was so nice. Clouds are rolling in with rain forecast for afternoon & evening and then "1 to 3" of snow forecast by tomorrow.

In looking at the rest of the week cold on Monday & then a gradual warm up to 50s by weekend. Spring is slowly arriving.

Ditto on the above. Those beautiful pictures of Russia are certainly not what is in my mind of Russia.

Thanks for starting the March thread, Ric. Pretty ornamental cabbage.
George: those Caucasus Mountains are beautiful but treacherous looking!
Adina: very interesting and informative website, Adina. I enjoyed reading about some of the Romanian traditions.
Deb: such a pretty hellebore. I have never grown them nor the ornamental cabbages that Ric has but I would like to try my hand at both--perhaps next winter.
Kiska: when do the waterfalls start to thaw--or do they ever? LOL
Good weather pics, Celia--looked like some nasty stuff, though. Glad it is gone from your area today.
petralittledog, are you new to the weather thread? If so, welcome!

Diversity in weather, indeed! Yesterday was a beautiful day, high near 70 and sunshine. Today, high in the low 70's and partly cloudy and a little windy. Monday night low forecast to be 32 and a high on Tuesday of only 39 with possible snow! Can you believe this crazy weather!??

here's our "official" forecast:
Today: Partly sunny, with a high near 73. Breezy, with a south wind between 15 and 20 mph.
Tonight: A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 1am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 55. South wind around 15 mph. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

Northwestern Missouri: Started out unseasonably warm and balmy in the 60's, sunshine, and windy this morning then this afternoon the clouds moved in with cold windy rains and the temps have dropped into the 30's. Snow predicted overnight. Many graveled roads are bottoming out and you simply can't drive on them or face getting stuck!! We don't need no more moisture from snow, ice, or rain in our area of the midwest...

It's not supposed to get below 45º for the next 10 nights.
Trying to think of a way to recirculate water through a series of dark hoses to heat from the bottom. Then to keep them evenly moist.

Good morning!

I'm too far behind for personal comments - great photos everyone!

A lot of you have had some WARM weather this weekend! (I'm not envious, really I'm not ;-) lol)

We've had plenty of snow the past week - I've cleared the driveway 3 times ... Gotten some sunny days between so no complaints here.

Today it's partly cloudy so there's a good chance we'll see some sunshine today :-) Might be time to break out the bikini ;-) lol It's 30F and fairly calm - just wonderful :-) It was already light out when I took the girls to school this morning at 8 am - just made my day :-) No more going to school in the dark until next fall :-) I feel like celebrating ! lol AND we've got daylight until 7 pm! Sunrise was at 8:26 am and sunset will be at 6:58 pm :-) Just one more month to go and then spring will be here :-)

Deb - I asked about the spring snowflakes - they're gorgeous. I've tried planting them a few times but they never come up :-( One day I hope! Gorgeous helleborus bud too!

Selma had a solo recital on Saturday - it was her "graduation" from violin book 4 (Suzuki). She played a solo with a sting quartet accompaniment which was really neat! She played the 3rd movement in a Vivaldi Concerto. Her rehersal at the church on Friday didn't go well at all. She was so stressed that she repedely froze and forgot her place so it was a bit nerve wracking! I was a mess on Friday night, I was so worried for her! lol Fortunately she pulled it off with flying colors on Saturday so we went out for ice cream and bought a cake to celebrate! :-)

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

After taking it easy most of Saturday and Sunday (shh don't tell anyone!), I spent some time yesterday weeding and planting more seeds. My poinsettias are confused to say the least, can't prune until May so I'm enjoying the blooms! LOL! We had some gorgeous weather, cool mornings and evening and low to mid 70's during the day.

Hello everyone. I haven't posted for a while just to much to do. Sharrona- I love that smile that prissy has. We use to have a dog that would smile at everyone and I was surprised at how many people would be afraid of her. They thought she was going to bite them. Everyone has very nice pictures. Yesterday we couldn't of had a nicer day It was 70 and we saw the sun. Played around in my garden spot and decided to try planting onions in some old tires we have laying around so I have more room in my garden. I thought it was worth a try. But today it is 32 rain turning to sleet and maybe ice up to 1/2 inch, then snow tonight anywhere from 2 to 8 inches so far. But I did enjoy my day out yesterday. We have had a lot of people sick with the flu so it was nice to air out the house. Hope everyone has a great day.

Oh, kiska, how great for you! I miss watching the deer in our yard. We had a house where they would come though but not eat anything. All the neighbors yards were picked clean but, for some reason, they left ours alone. No idea why.

The irises are very pretty and the smiling puppy is too cute.

The answer to the Q of the day is, A...contrails. And it's funny because...I woke up to this...

George, that must have been a scary landing for the passengers and crew!

It's been raining here literally all day. No thunderstorms--just a slow steady rain with short periods of harder rain. The temperature has been dropping all day--our high of 67 was reached sometime in the wee hours of the morning. Tonight's low is forecast to be 32! :o((

Here's a photo of a January sunset with contrails in it.

We had a high of nearly 70F and sunny skies here today and still have 63F this evening. The temps will drop quickly with an expected low of 29F tonight and a high of only 32F tomorrow. We could have an ice storm overnight and tomorrow as well. The weather for the next 10 days is a mixed bag...our highs will range from 16F to near 40F. Typical Spring weather I guess.

Rannveig...Selma looks like a study in concentration. I'm glad she did well.

Thanks to everyone who has posted pics of spring blooms. Gives me something to look forward to.

Marsue, as we heard in the news it really was! Some passengers needed psycological aid.

I was real shocked with that new's feature of today's morning, providing the fact, that I had been pictured in the cockpit of a similar (A 320) airplane, after happy landing from London several years ago. I think, it's a real reliable aircraft, as you see.

Those were real skilful pilots in that Lufthansa airplane. I'm delighted with their craft!

O, Gosh! E_B, that's a very beautiful pic of the early Spring! I love that special purple color! I consider it to be the feature
of the March gloaming (dusk).
BTW, what is that "magic" sphere?

The pic shows my Summer reminiscences of the real early morning (5 a.m.) mist above the pond near my brother's farm.

Loved all the pics today; E_B~ wow, just gorgeous.
KG~a peacock; something that doesn't come to mind when thinking of fowl. Very nice; love the spring mist, too.
TF~nice flock there; do they arrive as chicks at the POffice? I always enjoyed hearing the peeping as they arrived.
se_eds~the rain will be good for the fertilizer, if it's not all washed away:) Nice seeing it's getting warm there.
You'll be seeing a lot of this little one; I took "a few" while I had the chance.

We had rain here, too! (Not that that's much of a surprise, I know.) It was 72 outside when I put the little bunny on the bus in the morning, and 51 when she got home. It's 48 now and is expected to drop another 10 tonight. Tomorrow it will be back up in the 60s again, though, and Wednesday it will be sunny and 72. I bought a bunch of caladiums a few weeks ago and they arrived this week. I almost planted them this weekend, and then thought better of it. I'm glad I waited! They don't like being cold. I put them in an old pillowcase and they're waiting for warmer weather in the garage. In the meantime, I have tons of monkey grass to move. Anyone want some monkey grass? We started with a thin border (1-2 plants wide) around our bed, and now they are about 4 feet deep, all the way around. I'm moving some of it to the backyard, but I don't need THAT much! I suppose we could just completely re-sod the back yard with it... Maybe it would crowd out some of the weeds back there... LOL

Kiska, We generally don't get T-storms in the winter & w/ it being March anything thing or any kind of weather can happen. We have actually had a 5" snow as late as April. Love the little moose! :D and I can't wait to see more pics of him. :) He does look as if he has had a good shave. ;)
Marsue! You have snow! (duh) Neat pic!
Juri, Love those pics! Gee! :D
Kelli, Do ya have some more pics you could share? :D That would be such a neat place to go! I love seeing the world thru your eyes! :D
Thanks to you all for sharing your world! :D
Sharon, even if your Poinsettia is "late" it's still really pretty! :D What a neat surprise for you! :D
TF, those hare some good lookin' chickens...are you gonna raise them for the meat or are you gonna sell the eggs? I hate to hear that you all are still sick...& I think I would have to try the hen house anyway! :D

The trivia anwer is...A
Contrails form when air in the upper atmosphere is suddenly heated.
Depending on how much wind shear and moisture there is, contrails can last minutes or several hours.

Todays trivia is...
The atmosphere consists of 21% Oxygen. What would most certainly happen if that were to increase to 25%?
a) Ice caps would melt
b) Lifespans would increase
c) Fires would destroy forests
d) Pollution would decrease


Have a Great Day !

No takers on the monkey grass, huh?

I got my results from the lab work from my blood test (not the glucose ones yet), and as expected (by me, if not by my former doctor (grrr...)), my thyroid is way out of whack. The doctor called in some new meds for me and I started them today. Hopefully I'll be feeling better in 10-14 days as they start taking affect. Yayy!

The big bunny and I are heading for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo tomorrow. Joy's excited about seeing her new friends: the horses from the trail ride. LOL We're going with some other homeschoolers from church, which should be very fun. :-) We not actually going to see the rodeo part.. just the animals/exhibits in the livestock show part. The rodeo costs extra money, and I don't think would be as much fun anyway. There's a carnival there, too, of course, so I'm sure Joy will be going on some of the rides. :-) Tomorrow's weather looks great...

Beautiful overcast spring morning here. Got a lot of outside spring cleanup done until about 10:30 AM then the rains started. 60 degrees F. The storm that moved through the US yesterday has arrived. I understand they had severe weather throughout the south and that rains were so heavy in West Virginia that some roads were washed out. Stay safe Joey!

We received 1.6 inches of rain today by 5 PM. We are scheduled to get 2-3 inches overnight. Steady downpour all day and the ground is soaked from snow melt. Temps dropped to 38 degrees F. Our nearby ( 3 miles west) Susquehanna River drains the middle of Pa. from New York to the Chesapeake Bay and is expected to hit flood stage on Thursday at Harrisburg, Pa. due to snow melt and rain received.

The Canada geese and whooping cranes that use the eastern seaboard flyway are making their way north. A few flocks came through around the last of February but they are coming north by the hundreds now. When evening clouds obscure their sightings, you can still hear them gabbling to each other. Spring Music! A lot of the whooping cranes use the Susquehanna River as a flight guide north through our state then head off to the west to the Great Lakes and Michigan.

We went to Rome because DH had a conference there. The first couple days we were at a noisy hotel in an industrial park and I was sick, so we'll just box up that portion of the trip and sink it in the depths of the sea. When the conference was over, we moved to a hotel in the heart of Rome and things were much, much nicer. This is a view from the terrace.

About the weather in Rome - It was a mixed bag. There was a day or day and a half of misty rain when we were at the industrial park. Most of the other days were mostly cloudy. Some days, a long sleeve shirt was sufficient and some days I needed to wear a jacket. Sunday the 2nd was sunny and beautiful.

It's 30 tonight with a steady freezing rain. Hopefully it will let up before ice builds up to the point of doing damage. A high of 28 is expected for tomorrow.

Tamara...those purple chickens are cool!

se_eds...We have quite a few lakes here and many large wetlands as well. The Canadian geese population here is year round and swells during migration and summer. They really are a problem at times.

KG...It looks like you finally got that winter weather you wanted. The "magic sphere" is an old mirror I carried out in the woods and photographed in an attempt to be creative.

Sharona...Wow! That's about as red as red can be!

Here's an older photo...Yes we do have a few white birch woods here in Pa.

Shew, done and I had 13 minutes to spare. TF, aka Fritch sent me a d-mail yesterday that said
Quoting:tomorrow,(today) up to 8:30 PM eastern time. Also good for transplanting perennials [coleus?] and pruning.

Then wait till after 10:30 AM Thursday, a good time for tubers, root corps, and fruit trees. You can also cultivate and prune, right up till about 9:30 AM Friday. then rest till next first quarter in April...

Well I churned out 400 cuttings and several stock plants are putting out what appear to be perfect little plant starts so I still have a few hundred possibilities I'm letting mature longer. Thursday I'll pot up the other goodies I'm taking to the RU.
The storm was fast windy and hard for about 30 min. It filled my birdbath right quick.

Lovely shots Kelli!
I could see it in the background in the first shot.
For the record if you see arches it ain't Greek.
They never invented them as an architectural element.

Well it rained until about 6 PM.
POURED as I was coming home.
Only one T-Storm though.
Depending on the rain they got up North we may have some serious flooding down here soon.
The river near work was about 3' from the top.
The Ohio River gets it's floods from the East so...

Helluuuu! We are Floating! :-O (well...not exactly)
The Weather Service has issued a FLOOD WARNING
West Virginia counties
GREENBRIER, MONROE, SUMMERS

Monroe being the county that I'm in... There was a tornado watch for Wytheville (VA), which is not all that far from here, but would be going Dyson's way! At the moment we have had 2 1/2" today w/heavy winds. Some roads are closed, but none in this area have been washed out (yet). But as DH would say...Noah would have to get out the Ark if the water made it up to our house. ;)
Se_eds, Where does your family live, exactly? I hope they are safe!
Dyson, are you there?
Kelli! Great Shots! And glad to hear that all was not last. ;) Got any close views of the pots? planters? How many buckets of water do you want? ;)
E_B, Where are your pics? Maybe you're reposting while I'm typing...which is rather slow. I can't do 90+ like DD. Stay safe ... freezing rain can really do a number on things...

Take Care all!

We had 1/2" of rain yesterday at the house ane about 2" on the south end of the island where I work. I heard the the thunder coming around 1pm, then the skies just opened up around 1:30pm and poured out the rain for almost 3 hours. By 5pm when I left work the majority of the storm had passed through. It rained lightly again at the house for another 2 hours. The trees got a shaken out - no widow makers, but plently of smaller branches were littering the lawn.

Welcome back, Kelli!! Rome must have been wonderful--your pictures certainly are.
Sidney-you've been busy!
Marylyn--you and the big bunny have a good time today and I'm glad your thyroid problem will be taken care of as soon as the med kicks in.
Joey--I hope you have a lifeboat! LOL C for the trivia (just because everybody else thinks that is the answer)
Sharon: I see you took another photograph of Kiska's favorite creature! LOL (We won't let you forget about those lovely green frogs, Kiska.)

Our high today is forecast to be 59 and the sun is shining. Yesterday we had snow (which is all gone now in our immediate area) On Friday we might possibly have more snow! Crazy!!

Everybody have a good day!

..cream colored LOL purple eggs would be a hoot! Actually, those are called Blue Laced Rosecombs. They are quite small, very docile, and good free-rangers. We are fencing in an old garden where i have enjoyed growing lots of early corn [Triple Play] and winter squash [Sweet Keeper] and late tomatoes. They will have a mini-barn on skids.

Loving all the pictures. The weather here was so nice. Can i complain that it was too sunny? Baby Orion wouldn't keep his hat on, got a bit of a sunburn right through his hair!

Sid, got your message. I will ALWAYS give it in your time. ;-) Glad you got it done!

Here is another breed we are incubating. Blue Laced Red Wyandottes.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

TameraFaye, beautiful name for a chicken! The wyandottes are pretty too!

It's 40* here, but a cold wind blowing off the ice and snow. We are cloudy with a chance of snow.

DH and I have been making an obituary folder with obits and pictures when available. We've lived here all our lives, so someone who died 100 years ago is not a stranger. It's been ''fun'' reading the old obits and remembering those we knew when we were kids.

Kiska, this guy is for you. I was about 5'' from him. He was just sitting on the ground when we came home and I nudged him to get him off the ground. He must have been stunned because later he flew away fine.

Hi everyone, great pics!
Kelli, thanks for the great pics of Rome, love the Colosseum and I wish I can visit it someday!
Marylyn, you just described our weather : it's been 70 yesterday at noon and by last night it got colder to 48! Strong wind and cloudy, dyson dark...BTW,where is Dyson?
Yuri, I was also impressed with those pilots in Hamburg, they were great! Love your pics!
Kiska, aweeeeeeeee, what a cutie!
Sharon, you did a great job with your poinsettia, even if it didn't bloomed on Christmas, maybe next year! You should try to cover it with a black bag or a cloth from September to December so it should have 12-14 hours of dark every day. What a sweet froggie!
Joey, what a pretty flower!
I just heard a joke today and I have to tell it to you guys :

Hi Sugar, yes it is! A he. My camera light washed out his color some.

This is when he was on the ground. I ran for the camera.

I've been doing a lot of praying lately and I think under the circumstances, he was a sign that my prayer had been heard. He didn't really seem to be stunned. He was also sitting at the entrance of the cat box under the porch. The reason I nudged him to get him off the ground. This is the second sign I've had, which has set my mind at ease.

We're one of the flight paths so we are graced with constant engine sound :P The airport will be full come Thursday - we'll do a drive by and take pics of all the planes parked there. Don't know if we're going to the show. If we do you can bet I'll be going snap happy with the camera! Here's a link http://www.ameliaconcours.org/

Heads up!

Our snow was gone by yesterday afternoon but just read what is in store for us.
This report comes from KTHV'S website: http://www.todaysthv.com KTHV is our local CBS affiliate:
"More winter weather is shaping up for Arkansas this week.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch from Thursday evening through Friday afternoon for much of western and northern Arkansas.

Rain and snow will begin developing across parts of northwest Arkansas Thursday afternoon and evening. Snow will spread across the northwest half of the state Thursday night and Friday. The snow may be heavy at times.

Four to eight inches of snow could fall in the watch area. There is a chance of thunderstorms, which could mean even heavier snow, locally up to a foot of snow is possible.

The watch includes areas generally north of a Murfreesboro, Little Rock and Augusta line."

Can you believe that? This is March and this is Arkansas! Spring is supposed to be here!

The temperature is in the upper 20's here tonight under a blanket of Dyson Darkness. The ice storm wasn't too bad here--we were just on the south eastern edge and only received 1/4" or so. Not enough to do much damage and just right for photography. It was much worse just to the west across the state line in NE Ohio where they have declared a state of emergency. They are calling for some sunshine tomorrow morning. I just might have to take half-day off work and head back out with my camera. The sun peeked out a bit this evening and I managed to get a few photos.

Whoops! Let me clarify! The Concours D'Elegance is a vintage car show. Our little island gets over run with the super wealthy during this week as they fly in to participate in auctions/silent auctions to purchase the vehicles. Our airport will be full of private jets, but the Ritz Carlton will be full of vehicles! Sorry for the confusion! :O

Marsue Were going to have some super lows this weekend as well. Way too cool for March here, but again no complaints from me! Cool air = good hair days!

PA to Kiska's snow-covered mountain peaks! Beautiful!! I've said it before and I still believe that you guys should get together and make a calendar or better yet, a coffee-table book of your photographs.
Sharon: my DH loves cars, too, so he would be in "car heaven" rather than "airplane heaven" LOL When we went on a driving trip up through several mid-western states 4 years ago, we had to stop at this HUGE auto museum in South Dakota. Even I enjoyed it. ☺☺☺
TF: I don't have a clue about the kind of rooster that fella is. I love those pretty little hens.

As the report in my post above stated, we are under a winter storm watch starting tonight and going into Friday evening. The watch area does include central Arkansas. Higher elevations could get as much as a foot or more of snow. Our high temp on Friday is forecast to be 35 and the low Friday night is forecast to be 20!! Hard to believe here in March!! BRRRRR!

Here's a scene from warmer days: the 4th of July--LOL

They are calling for it to get up to 78F today. I really needn't get that warm.

I have been so exhausted since I came back from the trip. Sometimes I don't even have the energy to make myself something to eat. I consider that a blessing in disguise. ;-)

The very first picture that I showed you the other day was the Roman Forum. Here are a few more pictures of it. The trees are Italian stone pines. They are all over the place. They grow out here where I live and someone a few streets down had a gorgeous one but cut it down.

The roundish building on the far left is the temple of Vesta and the three columns in the center are what remains of the temple of Castor and Pollux. Note all of the wildflowers in the foreground. DH is like, "Caesar saw these same buildings we are looking at," and I am like, "Look at all of the flowers!" Can any of you DGers relate to that?

E_B gorgeous pics!

Kiska, the mountain is always amasing, great zoom!
Deb, wonderful tulips!
Sharon, I'll do that, don't worry! I did it too, but finally realised our nights get longer anyway from September to December.
Tamara, I don't know the breeds but they are so pretty!

The weather has been so fair here! Glad folks are enjoying our chicken pictures, as I always enjoy everybody's world view. The birds are pretty much the only pretty thing around here anymore, since our lake has gone down to a third it's original size, and all else around here is flat and plain and not "sprung" up yet [just ask Sugarweed!]

I will wait till the weekend so everybody gets a chance! Then I should have more pictures of unusual birds, this time BABY CHICKS!

Have a nice week!

Early, glad you didn't get much ice. Sugar maple time! I like the sky in the 3rd picture. It really dwarfs the house. So many empty silos. I love the last picture! Very nice!

Deb, those tulips are just what I need to see right now instead of snow!

TF, I'm stumped, but they sure are lovely ladies!

Kiska, that is a beautiful picture! It's neat that it's so close to home! The second picture is a snow volcano!!

Sharon, I wondered why the link said cars but nothing about planes, giggle! Well, you need to go and rub elbows with everyone!! What a tropical feel to your picture!

Ric, good luck with your 50*!

Marsue, lets hope March goes out like a lamb! What a beautiful ''flower'' :0 ) Wow 8 grandchildren! What cuties!!

Marylynn, looks like rain!

Kelli, what wonderful vacation pictures!! ROTFL!!! I can relate!! Incredible buildings tho!! They're huge! What a pretty robin! That's quite a tangle of trees he's in.

Adina, you sure have puffy pidgeons :)) CONGRATULATIONS!!! That's how you'll feel when it sinks in!

George, what a nice downtown shot!

TF, can't wait for the chick pictures!!!

Kelli This car show is a treat for vintage car lovers. These vehicles are lovingly cared for. I was behind 3 vintage Rolls Royces last year on my way to work. And yes, people just drive them here as well. LOL! I think many DGrs would feel that way about seeing the pretty flowers! I know I would!

Lovely shots!

Kelli I love the non-tourista looks you are putting up.
Exquisitely beautiful and I, like your DH, am imagining all the people for over 2000 years who have had that view...almost surreal.
It's hard to wrap your brain around just how much pain and brutality went on in that structure.
It looks so calm...

Well we had the 50 degree stuff today.
W/ a guy from Ontario and another guy from WI here acting like it was Summer...lol!

Not good news for tomorrow though.
Rain starting tonight. Temp currently 39 ...
Depending on how fast it drops it will either be rain of freezing rain for the drive in.
Then 2-4" of snow during the day as the temps continue to drop...
Then HEAVY snow moving in...
a possibility of 6-12" of total accumulation by Saturday night... YIKES!

There is this little warning though... from 'THEM'

the exact path and strength of the system is still in question.
if the system moves farther west...more warm air will lift into the
region...causing lower snowfall totals and more mixed
precipitation. if the system moves farther east...the heaviest
snowfall totals will shift south and east of the region.

huh?

LOL!

Kelli: your pictures of the ruins of "old" Rome are really good. I can relate to the flower comment but also to your DH's remark.
George is there a special reason for the flower decorations stretched across that street? They surely are pretty.
Sharon, the car show is really bringing in lots of tourist dollars to your local economy. I'm sure the merchants love it!
BP: Colton is so cute. I don't have any grand"babies" any more. Sigh--my youngest grandchild will be 8 in June. the oldest is 23 next week and 6 feet something tall!
TF: Is that Orion? He's a cutie, too!
Pretty pear blossom, Deb.
Ric, the weather people are just covering all their bases--LOL. Your forecast sounds like ours!

The snow hasn't reached us yet but it should be here within the next couple of hours. My MIL, who lives in Clinton, AR about 65 miles to the northwest of us, telephoned early this afternoon and said it was snowing heavily there. It will be interesting to see what we awake to in the morning.

I may have posted this photo before but it is one of my favorite roses and I am so longing to see my roses blooming again that I have to post it again.

Good morning!

I'm hopelessly behind again, but thanks everyone who commented on Selma Rn. Yes, I'm very proud of her, but I sure could have done without the nervousness, I think I felt worse than she did! lol ;-) I guess it's one of the downsides of being a mom - we don't want our babies feeling bad! lol

Wonderful photos everyone!

EB - gorgeous winter scenes - I especially love the one with the house and the sunlit trees in the background - stunning!

Kelli - fantastic photos from Rome. I hope I'll get a chance to see it in person one day - definately on that long "to-do" list ;-) I really enjoyed all the photos thanks so much for sharing them - and yes I can relate to the flower comment ;-) lol Although those old building are pretty amazing! :-)

Adina - congratulations!!! :-)

Sally - great photos of the cardinal. Sure hope you're prayers will be answered :-)

Tamara - very pretty hens and quite a handsome rooster :-) Can't wait to see the chicks! And I'd love to see some photos of your surroundings even if they are a mess - what isn't this time of year ;-) Cute photo of your little guy :-)

marsue - you got snow! Did you get any more snowfall? Gorgeous rose :-)

Deb - wonderful tulips and the pear blossoms are gorgeous ... now I'm getting a bit jealous (a quick mental note - it'll soon get miserably hot where you are ... OK, I'm over it ;-) lol)

Yuri - great photos from St. Pete! :-)

We've gotten quite a mixed bag weatherwise this week, snow, frost and wonderful calm sunny day on Monday, heavy rain and wind on Tuesday, calm, mostly overcast with a few rain drizzles on Wednesday and Snow/rain turning to slush with a rather stiff breeze yesterday. Everything was covered in snow this morning. Now it's fairly calm and 37F. It's raining at the moment or is it sleet? I'm not sure - it's slush when it hits the ground anyway ;-) I think spring is starting to creep in - I heard a blackbird (Thrush - the same kind pictured in Adinas photo earlier) singing this morning before sunrise :-) Sunrise was at 8:12 am and now we have sunset after 7 pm, 7:05 to be precise :-)

I took the girls to the botanic garden in Reykjavik on Monday - there's a duck pond there so ofcourse they had to feed the ducks! lol

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Deb I remember seeing the Bradford Pear trees when DH and I were driving through 1.5 years ago. They are so beautiful in bloom. Im with you on the freeze weve got a late one coming thru Sat night Ill be bringing in some seeds I planted last weekend. :O This is very unusual for us this time of year.
Ric Be careful if that freezing rain hits while you are driving. BTW - I second the huh?!! LOL!
Marsue Keep those climbing Don Juans coming! Youve made me think I can try roses again. What kind do you recommend for a newbie? Hopefully I wont commit rose murder:( Lots of tourists dollars are great for the economy. A friend of mine has a store in the perfect location! Shes usually closed on Sunday, but will be open all weekend. Im on-call for volunteering. Thats ok, she always makes it up to me by giving me a huge discount!

Good morning! NOAA is using the "f" word in our forecast!
Quoting:Today Cloudy. A 20 percent chance of flurries in the morning. Breezy, cooler. Highs in the lower 50s. Northwest winds 20 to 30 mph.


We are unlikely to actually get any snow here in Houston. The counties to the west and north of town probably will get a dusting, though.

Is that portulaca, Sharon? They're beautiful. :-) I'm sure the people running the car show are not happy about your weather forecast. It should be good for business at your friend's shop, though. :-) Her webpage is very pretty.

Orion and Colton are both adorable.

Congratulations, Adina!! :-)

Those of you getting REAL snow (as opposed to our 20% chance of light dandruff), please be very careful!!

Observation for Houston, TX (KSGR) as of 6:53am CST (54 min ago)
Quoting:...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM CST THIS AFTERNOON...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN HOUSTON/GALVESTON HAS ISSUED A
WIND ADVISORY...WHICH IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM CST THIS AFTERNOON.

STRONG NORTH TO NORTHWEST WINDS ARE EXPECTED TODAY. SPEEDS SHOULD
INCREASE TO 20 TO 30 MPH WITH SOME HIGHER GUSTS LIKELY.

DRIVERS OF VANS...CAMPERS...TRAILERS...AND OTHER HIGH-PROFILE

Rann: the girls looks as if they are having a great time feeding the ducks.
Sharon: love the succulent and the orange flowers. Your friend's shop is wonderful--one could spend hours in there! I haven't grown roses in years because I thought they were/are too fussy. We just planted the roses we now have last spring. They all did wonderfully well. I've also discovered through the rose forum here on DG that horticultural corn meal works wonders in getting rid of black spot, which is the main reason I didn't want to grow roses. Give it another try.
Quoting:I have to go take pictures of a wrecked car today - At "Jim Dandy's Towing" just off "Possum Hollow Road".

Dyson: That sounds like a place in Arkansas! LOL For instance, there is a "Skunk Hollow" Road in Conway and we have a town called "Bee Branch". Of course, we also have "Hope", "Rose Bud" and "Romance" and I could go on and on.
Ric: your weather people sound like ours. We awoke to zero snow this morning although portions of western and northern Arkansas did get the expected 6-8 inches. However, "they" keep saying we could get from 2-4 inches by late afternoon. I made a big pot of soup in the event we do get "snowed in". LOL

I took this picture through the window this morning. It is a bit fuzzy due to the screen. The robins must think it is Spring!

The 1990s produced some of the warmest winters on record, causing dramatic declines in snowfall except for near the:
a) Great Lakes
b) Southern Rockies
c) Pacific Northwest
d) East Coast

I hope to get back later... Have a Great Day!
Joey

I'll just guess D. Seems like they never get a break on snowfall!

Yes, that is Orion, and I couldn't believe the resmblance when i saw Colton LOL.

I hope to go through more pictures soon, and post some icy ones i took a couple of years ago. The shinyness makes the landscape prettier!

marsue, sound like you live really close to my brohter. i think he lives on Devils Hill or something like that, near Conway. If you do know him, i will have to claim we aren't related LOL.

Marylyn, they keep promising us flurries and all we get is a cold wind. Not sure it will be good for gardening this summer, unless we get the cold wet spring the almanac is promising...

TF: I haven't heard of Devil's Hill near Conway but there is a Squirrel Hill in that area. We do have a Devil's Den State Park up in the NW corner of the state.

Joey, I am just guessing "B" for the trivia. Good luck with the school work! Interesting plant--what is it?

Rann: the duck feet certainly do make a good contrast against the snow. I see a lot of mallards in that photo.

Marylyn and TF: all we have had of snow this time around is a few very light flurries. "They" say this system will have passed through here by 2 p.m. so our prospects for snow are becoming slimmer by the hour. Thank goodness! LOL

Current temp is 33 with a slight wind blowing, very light rain/snow mix.

Sharon here is a yellow rose called Sunsprite. It has an absolutely wonderful fragrance that just makes you want to stick your nose right in the center of it and leave it there! LOL

Howdy all,
Well my slow load up days are over. I am now in HS cable. I had started at 8AM last saturday trying to upload a picture and start a new thread. I finally got it finished and posted about 9:15.
Since Ric thought I was on tan maintenance, he started this one so we ran with it.
Now that this one is getting some length on it lets go ahead and move to that March thread that's been sitting on the shelf.
Here's a new thread. http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/819021/
Come on over.
;)
