Dogwood Winter

Hey, this wasn't supposed to happen! My seedlings . . .



A fire and the crossword proved too much for Soul:

Eek! My seedlings are inside on the kitchen window where they tend to expire from the excessive heat......there, now you feel a lot better.
Cheers

Eeek is right, Tuttut,
It looked like snow up here in NYC, but so far nothing has fallen out of the sky (yet).
See you later in Tweetsville!
PS
Great photos!!!
Wah.
I want a cat.

Sendng much sympathy for your seedlings :(

Kitty, though, has the right idea.

Just when you thought it was safe to get back in your flip flops. Yikes, snow! It's cool here today too. Record high yesterday, record low tonite. Weird.

MiloSez said...

Oh, Tuttut, your poor plants. I was going to post about our few flakes, but think I'll let your blog speak for April snow.

DineometerDeb said...

Wow, your snow actually stuck to something.

Your tux kitty needs to try some of the new Japanese number puzzles. Clearly crosswords bore him.

The Long Winter indeed.

JGH said...

Oh dang. I hate when that happens. Maybe all is not lost?

Candie Bracci said...

Oh merde.Sorry about your seedlings.

Baino said...

Oh No! Maybe they'll keep warm under their blanket . . wishful thinking? Praps!

Roy said...

Obviously that's not the NY Times crossword puzzle; Soul would be far too busy busting her?/his? brain over the clues to fall asleep!

Your seedlings should survive. Many sprouts of Spring plants seem to carry some sort of genetic code that says "Don't Panic!" when covered.

Baino said...

Oh no! Snow! Maybe they're warm under their blanket? Perhaps not.

thyme said...

God, snow! Ow .. that looks painful. Spring is really breaking here and I fully understand how you are hungering for that green...

Kurt said...

Rush them inside and put them by the heater!

Reya Mellicker said...

It's cold here but at least it isn't snowing. Yikes!

Squirrel said...

Maybe you shouldn't listen to Kurt's advice... ??

it was supposed to sleet here, but nothing happened. (yet.)

Soul is so attractive-- makes me want to go give somebody who looks like Soul a belly rub. (oh wait, everyone here looks like Soul)

karen said...

That's a surprise, after seeing all your springlike photos of the seedlings up till now!

What a lovely cat's life it is... :)

This is kind of weird, and sad since I thought it was way warmer where you are (micro climates on the ridges too) than where I am. I figured you must be at a higher elevation where things can be tricky, but then mother nature is always unpredictable.
