This is a long winter year. Just as almost all the snow was gone and I could see my plants we had a spring blizzard. This morning it was almost a whiteout. I think we got about 9 inches of wet heavy snow. Minnesota winter snow is light and fluffy not to hard to shovel. I could barely get the snowblower to blow this stuff. I am not complaining. After 13 years of mixed weather I am learning to roll with the seasons. I do feel sorry for my son and husband as they are mail carriers and it is a very tuff day for them. The snowplow still has not passed through our neighborhood. Do you think they put them away for summer storage? I enjoyed a cup of coffee this morning while I watched the snow blow across the prairie. It won't be long before summer heat and humidity are pulling us inside to air conditioning to find some relief. I am finding enjoyment in each season. They all have their own kind of beauty.

Hi Alice, Hard to believe you have fresh snow. Everything is green here and beginning to bloom. We are covered up in pollen instead of snow.
Have a very nice week.
