Snowy Sunday...

Ahh...It is Sunday May 15th, 2011 and it is snowing. All the poor leafing out trees and the freshly planted flowers are really getting a rude greeting to Spring/Summer. I learned many years ago NOT to plant any beautiful flowers until at least Memorial weekend just because of the probability of snow in May. The snow is truly beautiful.

I do not have TV when it snows so I have no idea of the Amgen progress. Amgen is a bicycle race that is supposed to begin in South Lake Tahoe this morning and ride around the lake a couple of times to end up at North Lake Tahoe tonight. I have yet to hear of their alternate plans in case of snow. It will be interesting for the riders. I do hope they all stay safe.

Today will be a day of rest once I get my chores done. We will be celebrating one of our friends who is turning 40 and graduating the RN program. There will be lots of people and food and conversation and laughter. Mr. C put together a DVD of her life in pictures that will play throughout the day for all to see.

For those of you who have sunshine...enjoy.

For those of you who are having flooding and uncertainty in your safety...I am praying for you.

For those of you who are being creative...fabulous.

May the week ahead be the best for all of us.


  1. Hi dear,-how fantastic with snow in may--but I can assure you, it is not unknown here in Denmark.Seems though that we are over that this year- and even cold, we have the sun shining today :)
    I hope you enjoyed a wonderful party.

  2. Snow! It is beautiful, but I'm glad we don't have any here in Illinois. I hope you enjoy your day of rest!

  3. It is hard to believe snow in May, but it does look incredibly beautiful.

    Enjoy your celebratory day xx

  4. My gosh! SNOW!!! Your photo is beautiful, but it's just so wrong!!
    I hope it melts fast and that the race could be held in spite of the white stuff.
    Glad you'll be able to relax, my friend. Enjoy the party.

  5. Our May long weekend (Canada)is somewhat considered safe. oh well, always opportunities to be creative, thank goodness.

  6. Well, we've had snow fall in every month except July, but I don't want any more, okay? Don't send it my way! I just got rid of all mine 2 weeks ago........
    Hope you have some sunshine to melt all that white, and hope you have a wonderful day.

  7. Oh my! Snow in May? But how pretty it looks. We definitely do not have snow here in sunny West Palm Beach,FL. But we could sure use rain. We have not had much so far. Hope you are doing well. And have a great week!

  11. You have a beautiful deck! I am amazed at that snow in May! We were at the beach on May 15! I truly feel like I live in a bubble down here in Florida. I forget that it isn't warm and sunny all over! We don't see this beauty, however! Hope sunshine and flowers are on the way soon! Cheers! RM :)
