April Fool's from Mother Nature

This morning when I woke up I almost couldn't believe what I was seeing! There was SNOW on the grass. I guess it shouldn't really come as a surprise to me when it snows in April, since this type of thing happens regularly in Utah.

There wasn't very much snow this morning, but then it started snowing again around lunchtime.

All I can say is my poor daffodils!
All of their little heads were nodding down with the weight of the snow. I guess that's what happens when you are an early spring bloomer! I am betting that my tulips are feeling pretty smug just about now because they have not bloomed yet.

How about you? Did you get any April Fool's Day surprises today?

  1. OH man that bites. but our daffodils bloom through snow here.. which I love they are hardy little boogers..

  2. I'm STILL mad at Mother Nature for her trick!! Not only did it snow but it's FREEEEEEEZING outside! Booooooo!

  3. I'm So.Tired.Of.The.Snow.

    I took a shot almost just like this yesterday, of our poor daffodils. But I didn't post mine -- and yours are MUCH prettier.

    By the way, I have a moon shot up this week -- I followed your advice, thank you!

  4. That is a very cool picture of the snow on the flowers.....
    we had snow today too.

  5. Luckily my son forgot it was April Fools most of the day, because once he remembered it, well it was joke after joke after joke.

    Look Alex your stuffed animal is gone, April fools! Look the light turned on all by itself, April Fool's. 5-year-old jokes often aren't that funny.

  6. You don't want to hear this, but it was 90 degrees here today. 90 DEGREES!

    At least your daffodils are so pretty next to the snow. :)

  7. oh wow. Snow on daffodils. Geez! Hope they survive the cold!

    No jokes played on me, but i did convince my dearest friends that my husband and i were adopting a baby from Africa ;) LOL (truth be told, I'm trying to convince my husband that we should. LOL)

  8. I didn't get any April Fools Day surprises. I did my taxes though and I was SURPRISED at the amount I was getting back... : )

  9. Oh no! Your poor daffodils! The pictures are lovely, though.

    Stay warm, mama. Snow in April? Wow.

  10. Yes we did.. NIce sunny and warm day.. Is someone jealous :-)

  11. Oh no! We didn't get any snow here thankfully. Actually, we had a beautiful, sunny day. Very rare for April.

  12. my april fool wasn't fool enough. my office paid my salary on time :D

  13. Found you on Photo Story Friday. Great picture! Makes me feel so happy that we had a sunny day.

    No April fools jokes here - I think the kids missed the day!
