    • The garden usually survives, with just one or two plants that freeze and bounce back. Luckily the trees haven’t started leafing out yet.

  1. It’s funny how our reactions to snow change with the season. First snow: wow, how pretty! Snow in April: oh no, hope it melts fast! We had the same here, happy to report it’s gone now.

  2. That looks quite thick. We are getting some frost too. Some of the wine growing regions are getting very low temperatures and are concerned for the first shoots of the vines. Amelia

  3. No! Like Jason in Illinois, we got up to 80F yesterday–totally unusual. I hope we won’t have snow here until next November. The good thing about April snow (in the Northern Hemisphere) is that it melts so fast.

  4. Snow in April is very bad for plants. I sincerely hope that it melts very soon and it doesn’t snow again for the third time. I want the temperatures to rise or at least stay above freezing during the day and night. Bundle up Cathy and stay home warm. Take care of yourself. Happy early weekend. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita β˜•πŸ§£πŸ§€β„πŸ˜˜πŸ˜€πŸ€—πŸŒž

    • Thank you Margarita. It is still cold but the snow melted today. Hoping for some warm sunshine this weekend. Have a great weekend! Best wishes. πŸ€—πŸ˜ƒβ„οΈπŸŒ·

    • Hi Joanne. Well, we do occasionally get snow around Easter, but this has been a very snowy week for April! And COLD! And the end of March was so warm, so it was a shock to the system! πŸ˜‰

  5. Shiver my timbers Cathy – it looks cold but oh so sparkling. Intermittent snow flurries here this weekend and serious snow further north. Hard to believe that we had a short interlude of a couple of days with summer like temperatures a couple of weeks ago or so. Spring is very slow to get into flight mode this year.

    • Hi Annette. I heard about the vineyards in France. It is rather depressing with the cold keeping us indoors… such a nasty wind until today, so let’s hope it will warm up now!

    • I certainly hope so! It is warming up now at last, albeit with frosty nights, but apparently it was the coldest April on record for many of us in northern Europe.

  6. While I enjoyed the beautiful carpets of white snow in the winter when we lived in New Hampshire, by April I didn’t wan’t to see any more of it. Instead it was the time for green buds and yellow daffodils. Hopefully that will be the last for a while and you can get to enjoy your beautiful gardens.
