April showers bring May flowers

Who ever made up that saying didn't live in Colorado.  So far we have over 14 inches in our yard and counting.  I guess I won't be doing any yard work this weekend.  This is how it looks by our pond.

This is our tree on the North side of the house.  Last year when we got a snow like this a lot of branches broke.  It's not looking too good right now.

This is our flagstone pathway leading down to the pond.  I can't even see where it is.

The pine trees do look pretty with snow on them but they are weighted down a bit.

It is suppose to be in the 50's tomorrow and Monday so hopefully a lot of this will melt.  This time we decided not to snowblow our 5000 sq ft driveway since the weather is going to be warmer starting tomorrow.


  1. Beautiful!!! I am so jealous!!!!

  2. Hi Jody, You got a lot more snow that we got-we maybe had 5". One can never count out the snow until the end of May; I for one am really wanting the spring weather to return. I'm afraid I've lost my Peonies and other plants just beginning to show themselves. This afternoon is so windy.

    1. I don't know if I lost anything yet. Even with the warm weather Sunday all of my flowers are still covered with snow. I hope the damage is minimal.
