April Snow

Can you imagine my magnolia tree looking like this on top of the blooms that was turning brown? We had rain last night and today we are getting snow. So far the only place that it has stuck is to the grass and trees. It is getting close to the end of April and we should be having sun shine and warmer weather not this. 
I have been home most of the morning, but I am getting ready to go out. I am going to the nursing home and then picking up my oldest grandson and taking him home to help his mom and dad. I was going to be up there anyway. 
I have been working on a custom order trying to get it ready to ship. It always makes me feel good about having someone liking my work to have me make some special for them. 
We all have been wanting warmer weather, but we haven't had yet. It has been up and down with some flooding in our area. It hasn't been as bad as the last flood when it was man-made and not mother nature. This has been mother nature with all of the snow we had making the ground wet and now the rain with more snow. 
My oldest grandson got to go to my brother's and ride "Lady". I keep wondering what the name is beside Lady and when you hear them for the first time you wonder what horse is that, because you aren't use to the registered name. He started off on her in the bull pen, if he got bucked off, it wouldn't be a hard landing, but he definitely would be stinky. He didn't get bucked off and when he got her on the grass, he had no problems, you didn't realize that she hadn't been rode all winter. I have only seen pictures of her. They need to go get her because the first show is the 11th of May. Then in June I think they have a show every weekend or at least they did last year. 
I would like to welcome my new followers and thank you for your comments.  Well i need to head out the door. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Snow.....you have to be so tired of it. My daughter is still having snow. The only good thing for them is to help the drought.
I love horses. It must be fun watching your grandsons around them.
BE careful. Hope it warms up.

Brrr! That photo looks SO cold! In fact, it looks more like the middle of winter than the middle of spring. I hope you get some warmer weather soon. Take care.
