    I thought spring was here. At least some of the snow started to melt and our driveway was drying out.

    Now, we are in another winter storm.

    I don't mind seeing what spring looks like, except I would like to see it looking out my window!

    Pretty pictures Fly. Not much has "sprung" here at our altitude, it has in the valleys, though - like crazy.

    Oh, and after the amazing winds, here is what is left of the wisteria.

    That wind also wiped out all the yucca "plumes", leaving only a few flowers on each plant. So sad. I love yucca plants, it's wisteria I could so do w/o.

    Those are so charming, and mostly wild, no?



    Here is my front garden, the only place I spend any real effort anymore. These pictrues were from today, though later in the day it hailed and then we had THE brightest rainbow I've ever seen in my life.

    Missy, this is a really gorgeous photo! May I borrow it for my desktop wall paper for a bit?

    Why, borrow away tiny...I'd be honored. It seems kind backwards though...your pictures are packed w beautiful colors!

    The hedgehog is wild, the yucca I transplanted from the desert as a tiny tot.

    I love the desert. It's so different from here. One can actually get tired of the incessant green here.

    Part of that Dakota, Manitoba snow storm hit us yesterday delivering wet sticky snow and too much wind. This is why I never clip my horses or try to shed them out. Even if the hair has let go it still offers protection.

    Its been so dry here. Last spring we planted over 200 trees.. and have less than 100 that are alive/ or even half alive.. We havent got any snow/rain up until recently.. and finally.. the past couple weeks.. maybe in the last 2 weeks got a couple small snow storms.. and some rain.. but with the wind.. it dried back up right away.. and THEN YESTERDAY MORNING I WAKE UP AND BAM!!!!

    A foot of snow..:) Finally! Its the spring snow/wet snow that we need.. not too cold outside. Which Im sooo happy about.. This is what colorado needed! Its going to hlep if not alot a little.! and its still snowing.. up to my knees in some spots:)! Gosh Im sooo happy...:) but... I can't WAIT for summer!

    ACK! Your lovely photos put mine to shame! LOL!!

    Sorry it's still so cold and wet up there guys! I wish we would have gotten at least half of what you have/did. It's still really dry here, we are in the positive FINALLY but not by much.
    I hear ya BB.

    Tiny they are wild, a native species, produces the most fantastic small white peaches. I'll be canning them this year, YUM!

    My yard is a wreck. After last years drought there are so many dead shrubs, young trees, etc we have to clean out. The FS is doing controled burns around us, cleaning up the drought mess which is good buuuuttt..... I'm ticked. All these lovely days and I have to choke on smoke?
    (Yeah, serves me right thinks the people still buried in snow, LOL!)

    Missy lemme know what shipping would cost for that wisteria root ball!
    I'll gladly take it off your hands when you yank it out! I can't seem to get a good start going, I want it to climb the porch/rock on the front of my house.
    Love that stuff!!
