April Fool's

except it was for real. 

It started out like this on March 31st.

 and soon looked like this. 

I had to go to work and a couple hours later we received another burst of snow that put down about 
2 - 3 more inches. not much....just enough to make it beautiful.

The next morning it was a winter wonderland complete with beautiful blue skies and white puffy clouds. 

I just enjoyed the beauty of it all and mother nature gave us a surprise on April fools day. It soon all melted again.

Linking with SKYWATCH FRIDAY.

Stop over to see more beautiful skies.

Wishing everyone a blessed Easter weekend.

It seems it shouldn't be snowing this time of year! But your photos are beautiful!

Several years ago it snowed here on April 1st. The only thing was that our thermometer broke that day and read 70 degrees while it was snowing! That's one April Fool's day we'll never forget.

What a treat Felicia, would love to experience this.

OMG, it's so beautiful with that peaceful white layer. I love the first picture where snow is falling.
In Belgium we do't have snow, sometimes a bit sun but last days mostly rain, windy and cold.
I wish you a beautiful weekend! Hilde
You've got a beautiful surprise, Felicia! :) But it was April fool who put it there and took it away the next day...:(
At least you had some fun looking at it and taking beautiful pictures :))
Have a wonderful day

These are all great images, the first one looks like out of a fairytale.

The first of April has brought a mixed bag of weather phenomena around here, too.

Happy Easter,
Merisi

The blue skies and white of the snow create stunning scenes. Gorgeous photo contrasts from the beginning of the day.

A beautiful wintery series. I liked seeing the transformation from brown to white.
Even this Floridian can appreciate that beauty. (I just don't want to live in it *smile*)

I remember many years ago when my boys were little and we lived in KY...it was the day before Easter with forcythia and tulip trees blooming...and it snowed, covering everything with a heavy, wet snow. The next day on Easter, it got up to about 70 degrees with no trace of snow, and the boys were out hunting for Easter eggs! Crazy weather back then too :)

Georgeous photo, lovely scenes.

Stunning photos, even if it is a blanket of white. Winter doesn't want to give up just yet.

Birgitta said…
Still snowing! Beautiful pictures!
Brian King said…
Wow! Just the right amount! Beautiful!

Stephanie said…
Very pretty to look at.

Beautiful pictures, although I must admit I'm not a big fan of the snow. Greetings from Utah.

Snow is reluctant to leave.
Because it says it is beautiful.
Valerie said…
Yes, a winter wonderland indeed. Great scenes. Wishing you a blessed Easter.
Carletta said…
A very Happy Easter to you! Hopefully it's warmed up a little for you. :)
The skies are amazing contrasted against the snow and nobody does prettier farm scenery than you! But April? Snow? Eek.
Stewart M said…
If that happened here at Easter I'd been really shocked!

Nice pictures.

Happy Easter Felicia!
Yes, Mother Nature has a rather unique sense of humour, doesn't she?! It snowed here as well on April 1st but didn't stick around like yours did. Lovely shots Felicia!
NatureFootstep said…
lol, you never know with April. She has a mind of her own :)
Bill said…
That's the way it should always be: Just enough to be beautiful, then GONE. Lovely shots!
Beautiful images, but I am content to be in Florida for the winter!
It looks wonderful. Felicia. But, I think, a little bit of spring would also be nice for you. Great series. Greetings, Joke
