First Day of Spring and it SNOWS!

I'm not sure what this says about me, but although I've been a Texan for almost 31 years...I am STILL amazed by the abrupt changes in weather in our state.

Friday was spent taking a train ride to the zoo and enjoying gorgeous warm weather. The high hit 71 as we perused the animals and even met a giraffe named Jade!

Then Saturday the temp dropped over 30 degrees from morning to evening and it began to snow!

We woke up to SIX inches of snow on Sunday morning. No time to play in it though. It was off to teach 3 year olds and then worship.

And just last week I had started planting flowers! Remember this?

Well Sunday after church it looked like this...

My friend Rachelle said they call this an "onion snow". I had to have her explain. I am thinking y'all may know? Anyway, I'm calling mine a snapdragon/marigold/poppy snow.

I should have gotten a shot of it as we left for church. It was seriously covered. But it melted nearly as fast as it came.

And plus we were delayed a bit by visiting the original 1918 location of El Fenix and then even a little more by a visit to The Cupcakery.

(Almond Joy, Strawberry Shortcake, Grasshopper, Mocha Mocha, Bailey's & Cream--minus a taste, and Peanut Butter Cup)

What can I say? Trudging through the snow really works up an appetite. Or maybe it was the 3 year olds? Whew! After all that I could barely breathe and was lucky to waddle out there to get the remnant snow pic.

Either way, thankfully today it hit 70 again and there wasn't a 3 year old in sight!

Were expecting snow on Friday. I'm convinced it is because I potted a few flowers. Onion snow here we come!

They say if you don't like the weather in Texas, wait 5 minutes. ;) Those cupcakes look divine!!

Here in IL we don't plant anything until May because you just never know! And oh my heavens, those cupcakes!! I think I just drooled on the keyboard!
