Spring Dreams?

I don't think so! We had another 12 inches dropped on us yesterday. Usually, when I'm faced with this scene, I totally wonder will I ever be buying packets of seeds and seedlings again. Cripes! March is less than a week away, and we're looking like this up back? I think I know now why animals do that hibernation thing. Even they don't want to face this outlook. But alas, we're a 'plugging' lot up here in the Northeast. I should send this photo with a rooster or turkey staring into the garden to Pluggers, a comic square created by three-time Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist Jeff MacNelly. The man died way too early in 2000 and drew another of my favorite strips Shoe. Jeff Brookins has taken over Pluggers and draws it taking reader submissions.

What would be a good caption for the rooster to say looking over the fence, standing knee-deep in snow? If I send it, I'll give you credit with me. hahaha

By the way, 6 more inches headed this way Tuesday!


  1. So beautiful image, I love the red house,it's very charming!
    the caption is for sure "Serious avalanche risk here"
    I'm tired about the winter, I'm dreaming and anxious waiting for Spring time!

  2. Looks like you are getting more than your share of the white stuff this year! But it sure is pretty. :))

  3. Join the club though we haven't had that much. And no pretty red around.

  4. That is a huge amount of snow! I wish you could ship some of it to northern Arizona. We haven't had enough to create the run off and ground water we need.

  5. 'I'm going back to bed.' Hope your snowblower is ready for a workout.

  6. OH man! That is deep, but I love the red shed in the background. So pretty. Enjoy!

  7. 'It's so cold this cock (rooster) has lost his doodle'....what do you think??

  8. Oh, that is a really lovely image! Love that one.

  9. wow, that is some snowy fence! pretty, but i don't have to deal with it. :)

  10. What a great photo of the snow and red building in the background -- barbara

  11. "Cock-a-doodle-doo
    If we get more snow
    I'm going to move
    To Florida!

    I'll find me a chick
    And lay in the sun
    Have a coop-full of fun
    In Florida!

  12. Hey Lowell,
    It's 86 in Lakeland today! Enjoy! I'm just sayin'.

    Lakeland Checks In!

  13. No good lines for you, Birdman, but I do love this photograph. I can hardly believe you've been bombarded with more snow!

  14. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your
    site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?

    A number of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working
    correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

  15. We need to see a snowman Birdman style.

  16. Great photo! Love this but have to put my thinking cap on for the rooster caption...

  17. Despite the weather, it's a beautiful photo. The red building is terrific against the snow.
