Is it Snow?

Look kitties! What is this? Could it be snow? Do they make snow that falls when flowers are in full bloom? It seems really warm for it to be snowing too - its supposed to be 78 degrees today- but it certainly looks like snow. What could it be?If that is snow, then those are some pretty big snowflakes. If you look really close, you will see that the snow is pink too! Does anyone have any idea what this could possibly be? Here's a hint....we posted a week or so ago with our predictions that this would happen soon....

Remember our pictures of our cherry tree in full bloom? Well, we did say when the blooms began to drop off it would look like it snowed in our front yard and so it does. We sent Mommy out to take these pictures so we could show you!

And here is the flag Mommy bought for the garden in honor of Captain Jack. It shows the Captain relaxing in a hammock.


This part of the spring always makes us sad because our favorite tree will not bloom for another year and Cherry Blossom Time has come to and end. However, our azaleas are blooming more and more each year and we hear that the hummingbirds are coming back to Georgia so Mommy will soon have those feeders out so we'll have more birdies to window hunt soon!!

PS - If you have time, please go and visit Tybalt. His Grandpapa is having emergency eye surgery today and his family could use all of our purrs and purrayers!

Oh it's so beautiful, Momma use to say it was snowing when our Willow tree (which fell down this year) bloomed because it would put out white fluffs and it would billow all over. Momma misses her Willow.

Captain Jack since the weather is so nice would you like some company today...maybe we could go out and play in the garden.

How pretty! We've just had Dogwood and Azalea blooms fall to the ground. Our Pecan Trees are just starting to sprout leaves now. Spring is so long awaited, yet so quick to pass. ::sigh::

It looks so beautiful! It sounds like a perfect day to stroll and lounge in the garden.

Dearest Dante,
Our Cherry Trees have yet to bloom, when it does you can teleport up here and enjoy all over again!

Ah that is so much more lovely than snow! Many people lost of a lot of limbs on our cherries because they were in bloom at the last snowfall and that was just too heavy for the poor trees.
