Roaring Ceased

late april snow 2
So, um, yeah... Rochester did it's freaky weather thang yesterday and... um... it snowed. Seriously, it s.n.o.w.e.d. Not a lot and nothing stuck, but still, there were giant white flakes wafting through the air. It was crazy, yet somehow, not totally unexpected. We have weather cliches in our city for a reason. After the mini white outs, sun shined for the rest of the afternoon. And lots of it. Just not the warm kinda of sun, lol. It topped out around 45. It was very much the kinda of day that required I treat myself to some flowers.

I am loving these flowers so much that I am researching if they will grow in my climate. They are ranunculus, don't ask me how to say that, I have no clue! But, they are a bulb, and I am hopeful about finding some locally. I think they might enjoy my front garden. *sigh*

Anyway, I am sure you can notice the vast improvement in my mood. I treated myself to Starbucks yesterday and they had the horoscopes from the paper posted for reading while you wait. Mine said: After recent unusual events, you will enjoy getting back to so called "normal". Of course, for you, the word normal does not describe a static state as your pattern fluctuates all the time. Stay flexible! I took that as the universe still intends to frak with me, so I better figure out a way to enjoy the ride... thus I buy flowers.

Today I am eager to get into the studio. I am working on a couple of different things. I really need to settle down and focus. I am hoping to have fun new things to share by next week! But, of course, who knows...

PS - BOOKS ARE BACK IN STOCK!!

Kerry unfortunately those flowers are tender for our area. The bulbs would need to be dug up before the cold weather.

The snow was really a kick in the pants wasn't it? I saw someone mowing their lawn in the midst of all the flurries. Ooh Rochester.

Beautiful flowers...the accent is on the "nun" portion of the word and the final "s" is prounounced like a "z".

I don't think they grow that far North - they don't grow here and I am in Pittsburgh. But they are gorgeous, aren't they?

Hi there, I also loooooove ranunkels. Tried to put some bulbs in my front garden last spring knowing they would probably not make it. The green came up but no flowers. I believe a pot would be better, and to place it indoors over winter. I live in stockholm sweden and i believe we have about the same climate as you. All my best fram Malin
