Snow and Flowers

Spring in New England
Snow and flowers
Two beauties of nature, together

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    Snow in April – it happens – it’s happening here – but you bring out the beauty. Thanks!

    It’s so mad, the weather, right now!

    Yes, Jennie, it’s pretty, it’s New England. BUT IT’S MID APRIL and 37 DEGREES! But that’s just me. You, the eternal optimist, perfectly fit Monty Python’s, ‘Always Look On The Bright Side of Life’…(I hope this works)

    It’s like Winter is giving Spring one last hug before moving on.

  5. Pretty, but awful. Awful pretty. Pretty awful. Okay, it looks pretty, but the snow should go away now. Yes, look on the sunny side of life.

  6. Wow, Jennie. This looks like March in Texas. 😁

  7. Elizabeth says:

    Well I guess that settled the question of sitting out on the deck for today!

  8. The weather gets confused sometimes – rather like the rest of us.

  9. It’s heading our way… 👩 Oh, the magic of nature!

  10. That’s what my yard looked like today!

    It also snowed here, but fortunately failed to settle. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  12. A lovely poem and picture, Jennie.

  13. A wonderful image, with a great poem. But honestly, will the flowers also have loved the snow? 😉 Thank you, Jennie!
