Snow – not so?

May 15th at 12 noon.

Spring in the Canyon is a time of change – often on very short notice! Snow overnight, warm and sunny by afternoon. Early flowers expect it, I suppose. Their hardiness reflects that of the people who live nearby. The Green is deepening now, but still mixed with the beige and brown colors of last years now-dead grasses. Even before their leaves appear, the return of growth to the bushes infuses their branches with amazing red and orange hues.  All of these flowers were blooming on the afternoon of the snowy morning pictured above.
