Mother Nature’s Sense of Humor


 Mother Nature provided us an April Fool’s joke.

Spring snow. That is Upstate New York. Our

daffodils shivered in the cold, windy garden.


Tis’ Easter season with ladies wearing

their finery and Easter bonnets of all

colors decorated with flowers. New


shoes and winter coats.  What?  Our

apple tree sports big plastic eggs

blowing in the chilly wind.   We brave


the weather and put on a happy

face.  Customs and traditions.  Off

to church we go!  Our Dad took


photos of his wife and four daughters.

These days, some ladies wear hats for

Easter.  Smaller scale.  Less flowers.


The lilacs and forsythia bushes have

buds and will open soon despite

Mother Nature’s gift and humor.


Hope springs eternal.  Hope

overcomes the cold and snow.

Easter joy remains in our hearts.

  4. We are shivering with you. We went walking this morning when the temperature was 23 degrees.

    I sang in the choir tonight! The music director is quarantined because his wife has COVID. The young woman who normally directs the praise and worship group stepped in. John knew they were short of singers and asked if they’d like one more voice. The service was one John had designed for our church in NY, so I knew all the music, having directed the choir for it there.

    Hope y’all have a lovely Easter. oxox

    • Bette, thank you for your Easter wishes. Mother Nature will provide blooms on her time table. The struggle between winter and spring seems forever sometimes. Soon you will have abundant flowers, bushes and trees. Hugs and blessings this Easter, dear lady. oxox

    Mary Ann, I love the cheeky sense of Spring and Snow in your post, nature captured with gentle humour and love! Here no snow but bitter cold winds, the daffodils are surviving well, primroses full of stunning vibrant blooms and the forsythia bushes almost turning. Out on walks we admire the masses of magnolias all in flower, heavenly! I hope you’ve had a beautiful Easter full of sung and joy! xx

    • Annika, thank you for such a thoughtful comment. You got my humor! Our daughter was here for a quick Easter visit. The weather cooperated too. I tried seeing and smelling all the wonderful flowers and bushes you noted. We had a joy-filled Easter and wish you a wonderful Easter week too. oxox
