Winter and the Spring Flower Show ✿

Boy I tell ya, winter just won’t let up.  It’s April already for crying out loud, hardly the time of year for the winter storm warning that’s in our forecast!  There is 8 – 12 inches of snow expected the last I heard…

A friend posted this on Facebook and I thought it was hilarious, if not a bit overly violent.  But seriously, we are really, really, really feeling done with winter here.


Poor little snowman.  😉

On the bright side… at least it will melt rather quickly, right?  I hope so anyway.


Also on the bright side, there is a lovely Spring Flower Show going on right now at the Como Park Conservatory.  I know I’ve mentioned it before, but the conservatory really is wonderful, and I’m so thankful to have a place like that to go to that is so nearby.

Here are a few of the photos I took while I was there.  For some reason a lot of them turned out looking a bit overexposed, but they’re still pretty.  And such a bright, colorful sight to see amidst this relentless winter weather…







Ah sooo lovely, and it smelled amazing!


If you’re in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, I highly recommend that you pay a visit to the 2013 Spring Flower Show at the Como Park Conservatory going on through April 28th, it’s the perfect antidote to get you through until spring finally arrives.

And will also help save the lives of countless innocent snowmen.  😉


Hang in there my fellow Minnesotans, it may not look like it outside right now, but as surely as the sun rises and sets ~ spring is coming…
