Day 24 of 30 Blog Challenge- Something you've learned

I never thought I'd make it to Day 24! This is not my favorite topic so far of Challenge...I've been thinking about it for days wondering what have I learned lately?!


Well Spring is here but that doesn't mean HERE !

Never remove your snow scraper from your car before May and that goes with the extra hat and gloves.

A broken snow blower and a hubby out of town equals a back breaking day of shoveling!

Enjoying the sight and smells of Flowers always make a snowy day seem hopeful.

And a second cup of hot coffee sometimes does the's the get go you need!

Have a wonderful Thursday!!

Lovely flowers. Wow day 24, you are almost done! You have that heavy snow, so think of it as a good work out. We had temps near 40 yesterday. Quite a few leaks in the pergola cover. The contractor is coming over on Monday to hopefully get them all sealed up!!

I am keeping my fingers crossed that we do not get more snow here. I am sick to death of it!

A lot of great lessons learned.

I learned one many years ago with lilies. I never knew I should have removed those orange thingys in the center, they created a big mess and stained a tablecloth.

I totally agree about the snow scraper in the car. I'm NEVER taking mine out. Who would have thought I'd need it this morning. Thanks for the pretty flowers. So needed today.

I had to dig my snow boots out of the closet yesterday. I was so hoping I was done wearing them for the season.

They are lovely flowers.
A snow-scraper in the car is not normally essential where I live in March....... I'm happy to say!
Hope your Spring comes really soon.

So pretty to see the flowers inside when you have snow on the outside! I hope you don't have to shovel again while he's gone!

Hubby out of town and a broken snow blower? Call the local teenager to come over and pay him.

Those flowers against the snowy background would certainly make me smile. So sorry you had to face another snowfall, especially with hubby gone and a broken snow blower.

Very pretty flowers. WE are almost done ;)

Pretty flowers!

Not sure if I've actually commented on this--but I love your header for March. I think it every time I visit but am not sure if I've ever commented on it. :=)

Pretty flowers and that second cup of coffee always makes things better.

Gorgeous flowers. Very soon you will be enjoying your Gardens. Buffalo winters can be very long if I recall. Have a great weekend.

Great lessons learned! I can totally relate to the whole shovelling when your guy is away - it always seemed to happen that way to me as well - gorgeous weather when he's around and as soon as he leaves - bam! :)
