Weather (or Not)

We've had plenty of weather this week. Monday was cold enough to leave ice on the horse tubs, but that didn't keep Maggie from enjoying Standiford Creek in Union Hall.

The creek was lower than I've ever seen it in April. When I took the above picture on Monday, we hadn't had any rain at all for a couple of weeks. That changed Wednesday, when we got over an inch.

Today was shirtsleeve weather again but was windy. My tulips (which survived several days of freezing temperatures) are blowing in this afternoon's wind:

Within a few days, we've had freezes, rain, sun, and wind.

What will tomorrow bring?

I am glad to see that your tulips survived what was hopefully the last of our winter. My flowers, tulips included, have fared well also! We should enjoy the sunny Friday the 13th ahead of us as it will be raining all weekend! :(

Have you been to the scampage at If not, YOU MUST! It is hilarious. She scams the scammers back and it's ongoing. You will laugh outloud and won't be able to stop reading.
You'll also get ideas, lol.

Yep. I heard of that one from someone on the Equine-L line a couple of years ago. It's a hoot!

I also like this classic one;
and some of the ones on the 419 Eater site are priceless:
