Wordless Wednesday - Winter or Spring in Georgia?

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:


“Storms make trees take deeper roots.”
Dolly Parton

(This is where Chatty finds herself today. Getting strong roots from some storms in my life.)

We finally got some of the beautiful white stuff last night and today, more expected. I love it.
Praying you pass through these storms in His peace which passes all understanding.
Hugs~

Betsy Adams said...

Crazy weather, isn't it???? So you had some snow... That's cool!!!!!! Speaking of cool, it's been darn COLD up here today. We got 2 inches of snow --and high winds and cold, cold temps... Love seeing the snow--but don't care for those cold winds...

It is supposed to warm up this weekend though ---just in time for George and I to celebrate his birthday...

Hugs,
Betsy

Munir said...

Are you alright? the regularly funny person that you are is in somber thoughts?

Jill said...

I love your photos but am concerned about you, my friend. Here if you need me. Love and Hugs and Prayers!

A Quiet Corner said...

Yes, Sandie...storms make us take a stand and firm is GOOD!...:)JP

jack69 said...

Love the pictures of your SPRING, I like the dual level deck. I like the frog catching those snow flakes.

I hope the storms do no damage and do drive the roots further...

((HUGS))

Jeanie said...

Best wishes for getting through whatever is coming your way.

Lady Jane said...

Like the frog he is a cutie. Storms, oh my Gosh do we have storms we are weathering this winter and not the snow kind. But God will help us thru so we are keeping the faith.

Dee said...

Georgia is definitely confused right now:) And for those storms...they always blow over and the sun comes out.:)

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

While we're expecting a couple inches of snow tonight, I know you weren't:@)

Shelly said...

Wow! We had about two days of winter and are quickly segueing into summer...

Lynn said...

Traffic was great this morning - two flakes of snow fell and people stayed home. :)

Laurie said...

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Great shots, Sandie. Hope you're okay!

Storms will always come, it is about how we weather them that counts.

Ginny said...

I hope everything is alright? We have been in a real blizzard!!

nancygrayce said...

Sorry abut the storms......I'm an expert at storms and weathering them.....with a small amount of sanity left. Hope this storm is short lived!

Jazzi said...

Isnt it fun to get snow?? Not anywhere close to our 9 inches though!! did that close down your town?? LOL

Yep there are 2 of us, Me and Addi. Addi belongs to Tom which is my moms son, he lives with us and I belong to my mom. Addi is an American Bulldog but she knows that I am the BOSS round the house.

Hope all is well Sandie- and hope your spring gets here soon...

Debbie said...

Standing here in the strong root line with you, Sandie.

And you nailed the season here very well in these photos. I was just telling my DC daughter that we have a totally split personality going on down here this year. The azaleas keep trying to bloom and then getting zapped by another blow of winter.

Sandra said...

seems the weather can't make up its mind, yo you weather is confusing spring... flowers and snow...

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

What a mixture you have there. Here everything is still quite frozen and nothing blooming but we may warm up this weekend so things may just start growing here. No snow for us. Just cold and sunny.

Granny Annie said...

Love the dabs of color.

andy said...

Oh so ready for spring !!!!!

Wendy said...

I'm right there with you, Chatty. Hoping the storms pass soon and you find strength in those roots. :)

Jemma said...

I know that you are well and safe-so I will comment on your photography!! Love it!! Feel like I was with you-also your update on your blog looks great!!
Have a sweet day, my dear!!
Jemma

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Sandie, so sorry you are going through a rough patch. Sending hugs thru cyberspace!

Theresa said...

Sending you a BIG 'ole Ganky sized hug this morning:) We do grow stronger thru the storms of life! I'll be praying:)

Happy Wordless Wednesday!

SweetMarie said...

Wow, snow in GA! I will email you and see if you're okay!

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I bet snow in Georgia is rather rare eh? We had snow here in KY yesterday and it was awesome!!

Jackie said...

Lovely photos; so glad that you got to see some of the white powdery stuff.
The blossoms are here in full swing (South Georgia)...and the pollen is too.
Have a beautiful week!
Love,
Jackie

Wanda's Wings said...

Nice pics.

thisisme said...

The weather seems to be crazy all over the world at the moment! We've been told that winter is coming back with a bang next week, here in England :(

Linda @ A La Carte said...

it's a crazy world we live in!

hugs, Linda

Miss Debbie said...

Yes, it is hard to tell here in GA...whether it is winter or spring! But it happens almost every year. Cold nights, chilly windy days, but my dogwood tree is budding! :-)

LL Cool Joe said...

I love that quote fom Dolly Parton. I've never heard it before.

I hope you are okay?

Merlesworld said...

This is unusual post for you, the pictures reflect a quieter mood has winter gone on a bit to long don't worry Spring is coming.
Merle.....

The Boston Lady said...

Just keep repeating that quote by Dolly. So true, but wish you could have some clear weather soon! Roots are good, but sometimes they make us inflexible. Hang in there Sandie. Ann

acorn hollow said...

so sorry for the storms in your life here is wishing they pass soon and the sun shines again.

Ann said...

the weather seems to be crazy all over. I think maybe mother nature is suffering from dimentia

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I think you got more than us.

Angela said...

You got SNOW! We didn't get much more than that yesterday! lol It melted by noon. It's hard to believe your spring trees are flowering right now.

Lady Linda said...

Thanks for your visits. I hope you are ok.

Hello Sandie,
I dont know about Georgian weather. One thing for sure that I can tell you, is that here in Portugal we are having awful weather. Seems winter just doesnt want to leave. We have had non stop rain for days and days. High winds too. My garden is flooded.
I hope we get a peek at mr Sun soon.
Best wishes for a happy blessed weekend

Betty Manousos said...

looks and sounds like a confusing weather...hope your storms are gone!
big hugs~

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Looks like your having both! Snow, you don't need that at all.

EM Illustrator said...

sometimes there are storms in life where we just have to dig our roots deeper to be able to pull through. Over here it's raining again, no snow this winter :( well I had some of it when I was home in Sweden.
Big hugs to you xx

Sweet Posy Dreams said...

I'm certainly ready for spring, but we still have most of the 9 inches of snow we got last Monday. Rain today. What a mess that will make!
