How to anger the god of Winter...

I have crocuses in my front yard! Yay!! They are coming up through the grass... what a cool surprise!

Aren't they cute??

On another note... We went back to the snowdrop patch we had seen down by the river and dug up a couple of clumps... well, the humans did the hard work. I just supervised (a beary important job).


Oh they are so cute...


And now they are in our garden waiting for a permanent home! Oh yes... that is left-over snow in the background!

Yes, well... that was last week. Apparently my enthusiasm over spring angered the gods of winter... sigh...

We had snow on the weekend... which started off nice and cute...

And then got worse... We got a lot of snow! Heavy, wet snow... I had to break my winter gear out of the closet!

My goodness...

The snow is almost up to my armpits!

And I had to dig deep to find the snow drops we just transplanted! Sigh... Oh, and that's my Canada scarf that Jerry & Ben gave me for Christmas. I wore it on Sunday morning for the gold medal hockey game. A little bear's cheering counts for a lot you know!

By the next morning... well... The snow is now deeper than my armpits... but quite a lot!

Luckily I am a svelte little bear and can walk on top of the snow (more or less).

This is my garlic bed... they are 2 inches tall... but you can't tell.

And that's the plum tree (the pruned one)... They say another 6" of snow before the day ends... and then it will switch to rain. Where are my rubber boots?

  1. That's a lot of snow. Good thing you have lots of outfits to wear based and the weather. Seems to me like you should be inside enjoying a nice big mug of hot chocolate.

  5. Winter has a way of catching up with little bears and their humans who try to escape it by going to warm places with beaches. ;)

    1. Oh this was a tonne of snow! It is all gone finally and I think spring is really here. We didn't get any snow over Christmas so maybe this was our Christmas in March.
