It was warm and lovely for several days. One tiny flower dared poke its head above the protecting soil. A couple of days later a few more dared. But you just can’t trust the weather…….
Looking up at the sky I saw dark clouds in the west, moving in fast. Sudden fierce winds began whipping the trees. The wind – the wind – it always foreshadows change. There was a sudden burst of hail. I pulled my jacket over my heard and rushed for shelter. Then the snow began, the air filling with huge flakes. It came down fast, a couple of inches in an hour. Mesmerizing in its beauty. I share it with you here.
