Can You Find All the Spikes?

This is a side view of my home taken in November of 2018. It’s when snowmageddon started. We had some warmer weather these past 2 days and quite a bit of the snow melted but I won’t be happy until I can see grass again.

This photo is for Becky’s Spiky March Squares challenge.

  1. Chilly, but beautiful photo…though I understand that it gets old after awhile, and you crave signs of spring. I spent 9 years of my childhood in Minnesota–seemed like winter lasted 6 months each year… Now I’m in the Pacific NW–in Feb, we had 2 weeks of snow, and it practically stopped life as we know it, haha! It melted, then we had a bit more in March–but it didn’t last, and I’m delighted to report the Cherry Blossoms are popping out, yaaayyy!

    PS: I’m sorry for the delay in getting back over here to visit your blog (better late than never). I read your About with interest, as we have some things in common–love of writing AND cooking!

    So glad to meet you–thanks for your visits and comments at my place πŸ™‚

      1. Oh, then you’re familiar with Seattle πŸ™‚ I so live for the cherry blossoms…they’re a bit silly in that they’re impatient: every year some blossoms come out, then get frozen 😦

    1. I spent the first nine years of my childhood in Minnesota as well along with every other year of my life and yes, the winters are just about six months! πŸ™‚


            1. Absolutely! Chun King canned chow mein and Jeno’s pizza and pizza rolls. I grew up on those! They still make that canned chow mein but now it’s La Choy. Did your dad work there?


              1. Yep Dad worked there–so we ate plenty of Chinese and the Jeno’s pizza rolls…I’d almost forgotten those. Gosh, now I feel like you’re a brother I didn’t know previously πŸ™‚ Have a great day, Michael πŸ™‚

                1. And Totino’s pizza which was another of their products. Your dad helped feed me while I was growing up! πŸ™‚


                  1. I’m not sure what dad’s actual position was, maybe sales…anyway, we moved to TX and it was Mexican food for awhile, which I also love πŸ™‚ But, we must have eaten a million cans of chow mein–just thinking about it makes me hungry! πŸ™‚

      1. Well, while we haven’t had snow, the weather has been cold and inclement, and not encouraging of long country walks. But … Saturday, all being well, I’m taking the camera through Tyrells Wood.

          1. I thank you. Forecast: Not cold (but not exactly warm); Not windy (that’s always good for photography); Not sunny (I prefer overcast for photography, less likely to get blinkies.) And … no rain! Should be a good day.
