Spring showers at 7,436' above sea level are often white. In fact, I remember many Mother's Days spent with snow. The tomato seedlings are still inside, but the lettuce and peas don't mind germinating beneath the snow, thank goodness. I'll bet the bears wish they had waited a couple of weeks longer before leaving their caves this year, though.

I console myself with the reminder that summers at altitude are wonderful, though entirely too short.
Looks like good writing weather. And reading...
Happy spring, wherever you are!
