It is April and Spring is still not here.

 Yesterday I took this picture of two mini-daffodils that found their way to the bed in front of my porch.
I didn't plant them there, but they look so pretty. I love daffodils in Spring-time.
Wait, it's Spring? You wouldn't know it from the scene that I woke up to this morning.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen that is about 3 inches of heavy wet snow. 
I wonder how long it will be until we can use our back-yard furniture.
Hubby and I had to bring my car in for service this morning and I was not happy about driving on the icy, slushy roads.
Thankfully by this afternoon it has melted off of the streets which are now clear and dry, but driving this morning was not a pleasant experience.

I had a full week of work this past week and my son and daughter visited this weekend for Easter so the only crafting that I got to was connecting some more of my Granny Square afghan. 
All the rows have been connected as well as almost 3 complete column seams. You can see that there are four columns connected on the left and then spaces. I still have five more column seams to finish, but I have to do so slowly as this seems to hurt my hands and strain my forearms. 

I am hoping to get some time to work on October Morning and the Advent Calendar during my week off, but there are no new updates at right now.

Finally, I want to show you the pretty flowers I received as Easter gifts this year.
 This is called a Mona Lisa lily. I prefer the colored lilies to the traditional white Easter lilies.
I love to plant all my Easter plants in my garden once they are finished blooming. I like tulips second only to daffodils. These will be nice additions. Right now these flowers are in my garage so they won't be ruined by the snow. I can't bring them into the house as I am allergic to their fragrance. I just like to look, not smell.

I joined the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to this site to see what other bloggers are stitching.

Thanks for stopping by!
