Three Frozen Tulips, Ottawa, April 2012


On Monday, I was publishing a photo article on “Early Spring in the Farm”, and I was joking about jinxing the nice weather.

Well, looks like I did (sorry Ottawa!).

On Monday morning, we woke up to freezing temperatures and light snow. The snow actually melted during the day and it turned into rain pretty quickly, but the “oh crap” feeling lingered through the day.

I just don’t know what to wear these days. Thrown with abandon on the chair in the bedroom, there is a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, two pairs of jeans, one sweater and my scarf. Come on weather, a bit of consistency would be nice!

  1. How wonderful to hear someone else has a pile of clothes on a chair – and not on hangers or in drawers. I too am having a tough time figuring out what to wear these days – or changing mid-day.
    My tulips bit the dust. And we had another light snow this morning.
    I don’t blame you. 😉

  2. Salut Zhu,
    That is a fragile image, to see Spring flowers with snow.
    We don’t have snow in Paris but since over two weeks, it has been “la flotte” (et encore) “la flotte”.
    There is not much to do but bear it.

    Happy Sunday.

  3. Zhu,

    I got so confused on the day u posted the article. While I could swear I was seeing snowflakes from my windows in Toronto, u were talking about the beautiful weather in Ottawa.

    i was like :”global warming, may be ?” lol.
