we get that often enough in April.
Red Fox Squirrel with a face full of snow!
The story isn't the driving wind either (although that's none too pleasant)
The story is the FRIGID temperatures.
Actual temperature this morning was 15 degrees, with a wind chill of -1!!!!!!!!!!!!
my least favorite garden bird ~ the grackle.
Very unusual to have that kind of cold in the middle of April.
Snowy Aspen catkins.
Maybe it's apropos that Amaryllis 'Clown:'
and Amaryllis 'Razzle Dazzle' are blooming out of season:
Oh where, oh where did our April go??
