Two days ago we received a surprise snow storm. While it was very welcomed, news reports yesterday suggested Denver will have the driest winter on record since the late 1800’s. To all those worried about the tulips, here’s what a day later looked like in the Mile High.
Happy Thursday. Our close personal friend Friday is just waiting around the corner to put more smiles on our faces. Make it a great one!
Just in case you forget what springtime in the Rockies can look like. Love this state.
Live, love, bark! ❤︎

I am so glad our snow season is over! I can’t imagine dealing with snow this close to May!
We’ve had snow up to Mother’s Day in Denver and this year it would most likely be most welcome since we’ll be breaking a record for least amount of snow this season. Thanks for swinging by the “Ranch,” we love visitors. ❤︎
Tulip bulbs seem to love the cold. The tulips in our garden bloom in abundance after we have had a particularly cold winter! Love the tulips in snow photographs 🙂
the critters in the cottage xo
Oh my gosh! There’s something so beautiful about the color of those tulips against the white snow. Just gorgeous!! Tulips are my favorite flower too.💗
They’re pretty exquisite even without the snow but with it, it’s all the more special. 🌷
Love the pic of the tulips in the snow. It looks surreal.
Just another spring day in the Rockies. 😉
That’s amazing! And I thought the weather here couldn’t make up its mind!
Springtime in the Rockies is always an adventure!
This is amazing to us since we broke all kinds of records on water and came out of our drought! We sent it all to you!

Denver barely received any snow this year and is waaay down for the season totals. It’s gonna be a hot dry summer I fear.
Wow. The pictures of the blooming flowers are absolutely stunning. The set with snow are bittersweet … the snow adds something, but you can’t help but fear that the flowers will suffer for it. Happy Friday!
Actually, they were just fine, the snow hasn’t seemed to both them one bit. Blooming their little heads off. 🙂 Happy Friday.
The answer to the age old question: What do you get when you plant kisses? Tulips.
Awwwww….well. I could have gone with the roses on the piano version 👿
Bwahaha! Tulips for your weekend!
Great photos. Mother Nature can be fickle that’s for sure. We had mid seventies Tuesday and today it’s all about the cold and rain. The girls are agnostic about the weather but for different reasons. Kali is just as happy sleeping in front of the [insert just about anywhere in the house here] and Kloe is oblivious to wet, cold, warm, hot, dirt, mud, etc. Here’s to drying out and getting our Spring on soon! ☀️
Hope your Friday is swell and the weekend even better! Ear scratches to Kali & Kloe.
Wow what a difference, they are beautiful!
Bulbs around here seem to ❤︎ the snow!
Today was crazy! The air temp most of the day was 60•, but the wind made it feel more like 30•! I had to wear my winter jacket each time I took the girls out to play.
Spring, while lovely is a bit all over the map anymore. One day fabulous and the next day insane! Here’s hoping Friday holds the promise of a great day and an even better weekend! ღ
We have had almost record snow this year. no flowers blooming yet in our yard
You probably won’t have water restrictions then. Good for you. Spring flowers will arrive soon, I promise. Here’s the first: 🌷
Winter was dry here as well, but lately I think we’ve turned into Seattle…
My tulips look sad this year, though maybe they haven’t all come up yet since they have no idea what to make of this weather either…
Or the squirrels ate them all. 😇
The weather is crazy – everywhere!
Spring sure is fickle. We’ve had a cold rain all day. Yuck! Supposed to be in the 30°F’s this weekend. We’re going to freeze after having some 70°F weather last week!
The tulips look so pretty, even in the snow. 🙂 We hope we’ll be seeing flowers here pretty soon too, but it’s going to be a while I think!
The flowers in the snow make a beautifur phodograph!

Gee thanks for sending YOUR cold and snow OUR way! lol! It is miserable here today!
Oops, I clearly told the weatherman to head south of you!
Parts of Eastern Canada got like more than 2 feet of snow this week. Spring can be a fickle thing! We are full on in rain! At least it will wash the snow away.
I’m hoping we get some Pacific Northwest leftovers. We definitely can use it in the Mile High. 🙂
They look pretty in the snow.
In snow or otherwise. 🌷
Oh Brrrr Humbug! Blooming season is much, much better. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
My thanks to you for hosting. 🙂
I’m so glad they all made it through – they’re just tough, mountain flowers out there!
Which are no doubt, exquisite in their own right.
The rest of the west was very wet this winter. Are you a non-conformist?
Apparently, the Gulf Stream has been bouncing over us more often than not despite leaving white presents for the mountains. 🙁
you sure have it all there! Tulip love! I have a new bouquet of pink ones in the vase. LeeAnna
Too bad it’s the one bulb I have terrible luck with. Mine always flop over with the slightest drop of moisture and unlike daffodils, they never recovered. I have one bunch of miniatures that only get about 3″ high. I would soooo love to have these beauties in my yard. Swoon.
