Spring Snow

Usually by late May one starts looking forward to "Spring". I know I am!

We'd just enjoyed a week of 80+ degree weather.

I had a couple of friends helping me in the community garden so we got a lot of painting and repair work done.

The irises I planted along the front walk are finally blooming.

And the final week of school had arrived...along with cold and snow.

It was only supposed to dip below 40 "a bit". It got much colder than that and all the rain we expected turned into snow.

Massive snowflakes fell all afternoon. Lighter snow continued through the night. Our trees were sagging under the weight of all that heavy, wet snow.

By morning, we had about 4 inches and it was STILL snowing!

A freeze was in the forecast so I panicked and brought in most of my winter-sown plants. Some had frost damage from the night before despite being under three blankets. I didn't want to chance losing them so close to the planting date.

They were lined up and stacked under the dining room table on a tarp. Thankfully, the temperature swing between the outside and inside temps didn't harm them.

And because you can really do much about the weather, I decided to try a new blueberry muffin recipe. This one is from Sweet Little Bluebird.

It calls for sour cream, but I didn't have any so I used plain yogurt instead. I also used the suggested addition of 1 tsp. cinnamon and about a tsp of lime juice (not sure the juice made a difference).

It made way more than the recipe (36 instead of 24) said but they are so good I'm not complaining! Mr. LH and The Girl both kept telling me this recipe was definitely a "keeper".

How appropriate that my only cupcake liners have snowflakes on them! Perfect for our snowy spring day!
