No..This Is Not Here...

About this time last year, our daughter and her family
moved from northern North Dakota, to southern Kansas.

We were thrilled.  Hours and hours closer to us.

We'd get to see them more often.

And, they were loving the warmer, less snowy weather.
The high was 19F, in their North Dakota town, the day this picture was made in Kansas. 

But, if you're seven, and you've had snow almost every winter you can remember,
you sometimes miss it.

So, a couple weeks ago...if the teacher gives you an assignment for
reading tell everybody your wish.

Uh....guess wishes do work sometimes.

Those North Dakota supplies sure come in handy.
I think our son-in-law might win most popular on the block.

One neighbor has already brought over cookies.

Does this fall in the 'Be careful what you wish for.' category?


Oh, by the's 75F, here at Patchwork Garden.

Happy Gardening...

  1. What an adorable little boy! I don't think it will be snowing here any time soon, though a snow day would be nice. I could use a day off from work :)

  2. Your grandson is adorable! He's a lucky little boy to have his wish granted. And I can see why your son-in-law is so popular with the neighbors! I'm jealous of your 75 degree weather!

  3. I never thought I'd see the day I'd say this, but that snowblower is looking pretty good right about now! 14" of snow is great for the garden, but puts a pretty good stop to getting around for humans! (We're in south central Kansas, too!)

  4. That's so true, be careful for what you wish

    It's snowing here..


  5. Lots & lots of snow! We had sleet, freezing rain, lightening & thunder yesterday, all day, but it sure is melting away today. YaY! =)

  6. Boy, I definitely wish it were colder here in South Florida, supposed to be in the 80's all week :( But we do have some of the best beach weather around! :) Hope you have a great weekend!

    Best wishes,


  7. I'm sure glad I live in Austin and not in Kansas. A lot of my family lives in Kansas and have enjoyed calling them over the years and saying that I'm in shorts and t shirt when they had lots of snow on the ground.

  8. So wonderful for you, and that little one is a sweetie. Every once in a while I miss snow -- I lived in MN for 4 years -- but then I think about shoveling, scraping, salting...then I feel better!

  9. Hi Linda, great your photos.
