Yikes! You want snow? We got it...8" and another 8" forecast. Fluffier and a bit dryer than the last snowfall, which just last night had all melted away, I was thinking, "OK now, onward to spring". OOPS! I guess nature has another plan.... The Apricot, plums, nectarines, and almonds are all in a state of resentment right now. Poor things. Their blooms highly dislike a snow blanket. Thankfully the temps aren't too low, just hard for the bees to work -heh heh! It's when the thermometer hovers below 29* that the opening blooms and leaves are at risk. What a scene. It is beautiful in many ways, for in the depths of that snow, is life giving moisture. The creeks and springs run high. For this we can be grateful.
