Signs--of spring---

The weekend gave us something we rarely get SNOW! We usually get ice or sleet but this time it was just white fluffy snow! The girlz and I had fun going out in the morning while it was still fresh and brisk. They had a great run all over the place and I took photos!! So here's what we brought back--

IT started about 3 pm in the afternoon and by nightfall a white blanket had been laid all around the house...the girls needed a P-break so I let them out you can see the tracks headed under the magnolia tree-

White Nite~

Then in the morning we headed out early--the road was covered as was all the trees!

Waiting on my Valentines to arrive~

My White Christmas Came in Feb-

Snow Racing

the promise

But Spring is only a couple weeks away!! I got my latest copy of the Arizona Highways magazine and this issue was mostly dedicated to the wild flowers that will soon be emerging in the warm desert areas---I would LOVE to see that for myself---
Hope the last blows of winter are kind to everyone!! The snow melted yesterday-- we had rain!! My son is coming over today for a belated Birthday celebration!! Veggie Lasagna and chocolate/carrot cake--

The big oak out back---never looked happier!

  3. I didn't realize how much I have missed your photograhy and writing. The snow is always more beautiful in pictures...we haven't had any to speak of this year, and I am about to get my tires changed back into summer skin.
    Be well, Dixxe. C ya.
