Where To Start

I have been caught up in Greenhouse stuff, and by the time my day is over I find it really hard to sit in front of the computer for any length of time(old woman...many owies)There is not much new here.Spring is not coming...at least not here...remember my last post, Mar. 6 SSDD well it's Mar 20 and guess what SSDD. This is what it's doing right this second.....pretty isn't it!!!!!!NOT!!!!!!
     I'm sure anyone still getting snow is as sick of it as I am. In spite of the crap weather life moseys on with or without ya...I'm trying really hard for with...but how depressing is this, it certainly isn't inspiring or a big motivator....oh well enough griping about the weather that comes on again a little further down.So to get caught up.... some....  a few Sunday Challenges ago it was Transitions so this is what I came up with.
                                                                              
This little bit of life was almost wiped out. When our plant order was delivered the truck driver had put a propane Heater in with the plants ( so as not to freeze them) can you guess what happened....the heater caught the nearest pallet on fire thus starting a pretty good blaze......after stopping to use the Restroom the guy decides to check on his delivery...when he opens the rear door ...well you can imagine his surprise. I guess the fire had been burning for awhile and had sucked the oxygen out of the trailer( so it was smoldering away) when the door was opened and fuel provided the fire burst back into life...from here I'm not sure what he did first..at some point he got a fire extinguisher and managed to take care of his immediate problem...he threw all the boxes out of the truck you can pretty much figure out how they fared....and then if that wasn't enough ...because they were outside for some time( truck driver mopping up the mess) they kinda froze...is this some kind of omen.Anyhow half our order was destroyed and the other half is pretty ugly. We put in a claim and the new stuff has been replaced and sent...just as an afterthought ....the same guy delivered the new order and when he delivered next door he hit a guys truck....maybe a new career is in order? or maybe it really is some kind of weird thing...(not wanting to pick on the truck driver)
The challenge for this Sunday is Weather...so this is where the whining comes back in....around here for the last two or so weeks this about all we're getting....boring and depressing...but here goes. This is what we have been getting for the last few weeks.I'm not so sure anymore that the phrase "burn in hell" has a lot of meaning ....I'm starting to think that the other phrase " when hell freezes over" has happened ....because I'm sure feeling like I'm there. Is it ever going to go away?

                                                                                        

I won't be making use of this anytime soon.

I wish I was one of these guys....just put your head down and keep on eating. By the way these horses are Blue Roans( Winter Black) they are looking like Belgians or big Haflinger type horses.


Some don't care about the snow it really is a dog's life,they know they can come into the house and curl up and get all comfy and dry.

From Whiteouts to blinding brightness. This is the first sun and blue sky we have seen around here for over a week



This is the first time I've seen that Mtn Range in about a week, I almost forgot how pretty it can be.

 I'm hoping this is the end of this stuff.

The one thing I do have as a sanity saver is being able to go in the Greenhouse close the door and forget what's going on outside...and getting to create this.

No they aren't quite there yet but I'm working on it. so that's it for me, speaking of work gotta run...lots to do. I'll check you all out later.
                                                                    HAVE A GREAT WEEK

Those blue roans- you'd never know that their manes are actually black. Wonder what Kali found so interesting under the snow.... all that snow.... shudder....
Focus on the flowers, spring will come, it really will!

Janice said...

Those icicles look so amazing. I won't see them unless I go to the mountains.

MTWaggin said...

Wow! That poor delivery guy! I think we are all seemingly getting all of our winter in spring. Oh well, the moisture is nice and you are so lucky to have a greenhouse to go in and enjoy REAL spring!

Dianne said...

Love this...Janice! I will be checking it regularly...I so enjoyed our visit today. I found another 'picture' for you after you left...a beautiful little viola showing its pretty face in the garden mingled in with a Jacob's Ladder just poking thru...I smiled and thought of you...Oh yes, and ran and grabbed the old Kodak!
