Just had to post this pix of my yard this morning with 12" snow from last night. Not really that unusual but many find it intriguing for April 27. Most folks are talking about their gardens and spring flowers. We have a month here befor we get spring flowers. Yes. Some folks around here try and garden but it is very labor intensive and with frost chances any day of the summer is a pretty futile business. Our trees will not leaf out until the last week of May. Ahh! The joy of living at 7000 feet elevation.

Beautiful! The Sierras had snow last week too, so you are not alone. Trout season opened Saturday and I hear much of the fishing was done through ice.

Hi Gary,

Thank you for your recent visit to my blog and your kind comments. I've enjoyed browsing your blog (the snow is beautiful... though I'm sure you're ready to see it go).

Your art is beautiful! I'm in awe of some of the color choices you've made..... makes me want to get out of my comfort zone with color!

Yikes, and I am complaining about the wind and rain. I love the snow in the mountains in April, I can see them out the trailer window. But the rubarb is growing and the iris's will bloom in June!
The blogs are looking great!
