Old Man Winter

Old Man Winter seems reluctant to leave.

He's been leaving gifts to entice me to ask him to stay, but I'm not that easily swayed.

Intricate sculptures are left for me to enjoy before the sun rises fully in the sky and they dissolve into chilly puddles. 

He's been enlisting the help of a fellow collaborator, Jack Frost.

Everything has its season and, as beautiful as these are, there are signs that Spring is on her way.

Hmmm....I think you live in a valley or something because winter is gone from here. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

Tell him in no uncertain terms to's time, he has outstayed his welcome by too many months.

And if it makes you feel any better, it's all brown around here, still.

Don't fall for his blandishments! Stay strong!

Catherine: With warm, really warm, temperatures forecast for the next week, I'm confident that spring has finally arrived and we can bid Old Man Winter a fond farewell.

Jen: Oddly enough, that does make me feel better. :o))

Debra: I'm starting to scheme and plan flower beds and garden plots. He hasn't got a chance! ;o)

One final display of icy lace is a fine way to bid Old Man Winter a fond farewell. A few brave leaves of perennials have sprouted here, but they are taking their chances with temps at night predicted in the 20's this week. And there is still enough snow around to remind us that winter is still on its way out ~

We still have about a foot of snow in our "back forty"! I'm looking forward to the melt that is surely on the way!!!

Old man winter is starting to get on my nerves...LOL. Gorgeous photos!

I'm mindful that spring should have it's own time -- my gosh, we've been wishing for it, right? :)

I don't know which is worse -- your snow or our 90+ degrees.
