Now that my tulips are dropping their lovely coral petals, and the daffodils bowing their heads in resignation to the roses, who just last week, seemed to show no promise of life, and are now leafing out like reminders of summer mornings, I think it is safe to say one more big thank you to God and Mother Nature for the mild winter of 2014.
Thank you for a handful of snowy days, lovely enough for pictures, including this odd late March snow squall. I promise you that five minutes before I grabbed my camera, we had warmth and sunshine. An enormous wind blew in through the canyon and brought a mix of rain, snow, and sleet. I saw Olivia dash through the back gate, running in to find like-minded playmates.
Olivia, I love that you let weather fascinate you. I will not be surprised at all if you grow up to be a meteorologist.
