I know the old saying is "April showers bring May flowers" but here in Colorado we sometimes get snow showers instead. That is what is happening today. Lately we have been have weather in the 60's and 70's and boy does that make me want to get out and buy some flowers. But of course I know better and today is one of the examples. Right now the flakes are pretty big that are falling but it is not sticking to the sidewalks or streets.
I was hoping to get the foothills in this next picture but it is too cloudy today. They are really beautiful with a light dusting of snow. So all you will see here is the neighborhood behind our home.
I took some pictures in the front yard since my flowers are more in bloom there. For some reason the backyard is behind. Everything looks pretty with a little snow on it. You can barely see my little purple flowers by the lamp post.
The rule of thumb here is to wait until Mother's Day to do some planting. The first Spring in this home it was so nice in May that I decided to plant all new flowers and bushes in front of the house in the middle of the month. Well of course it snowed a week later and killed most of my new plantings. I now wait until the first of June to plant anything.
