More Snow and Ice

I've had enough of Winter.  I'm sick of the snow.  I'm tired of being cold.  I'm ready to trade in my extra pair of socks and slippers for bare feet and flip-flops.  At least the snow and ice make for some pretty pictures...

I'm ready for it to look like this:

And I'm ready for the beautiful peonies to start their blooming process.

I'm right there with you! Another snowstorm is here in IL, and while it does look like a Winter wonderland, I'm ready for it to disappear! :)

Gorgeous peonies!!!! We've had snow on the ground four times this season - in Alabama! After 2 gorgeous days of 62 degrees, we're having another cold snap. If it snows, I think the dogs are moving to Florida!

I hope you'll drop by AtticMag this week to see my home on tour.

Hi Emily,

Just came over to say thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I love those hats in your etsy shop.

Snow is a huge novelty to us in the Southern Hemisphere. I'm sure it can be a pain to live with for months though. But then so are 90 degree temps week in week out.

PS I dont bake either...

Love the pictures! Peonies are by far my favorite flowers EVER - I LOVE them!

Janean said...

Joyeful said...

I agree!! I am ready for spring! And it's not even THAT cold here! I'm just anxious for COLOR!

I think that that this severe winter will make us appreciate Spring that much more.

Yep, I'm with you. The snow is pretty but I am ready to bring back the roses!

LivingInspired said...

Be still my heart, those peony photos are exquisite! I too am beyond ready for the snow and ice to go away. Enough already!

Jerri said...

Great pictures. I actually think the snow is pretty (probably because ours usually melts within a day of getting it). But I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the flowers bloom. Usually around here they start to bloom in January because it's warm & sunny and then a cold snap kills them....that hasn't happened this year!

I'd like to invite you to come by for my first Friday Favorites event!

Emily pardon me I do remember now, what I did not do is add it on my task bar that is what it was I tried after I hit follow and it did not come up!!~ I am brain dead!
