The apricot blossoms are starting to drop, peach trees and magnolias are blooming.  The leaves of the chokecherries have popped out.  Butterflies flutter by.  Spring is amazing, especially at how fast it appears.  Unfortunately a spring snow is expected on Sunday.

Beauty of a Spring Day

The crisp white snow on Mount Ogden and Ben Lomond glistened in relief against the backdop of a blue sky filled with fluffy cumulus clouds.  Blossoms on the apricot trees and forsythia bushes burst open.  Daffodils and violets are in bloom.  A beautiful Spring Day.

Yesterday, I received a letter from Honeysuckle lane, Honolulu, Hawaii.  What a surprise, and lovely gift from my niece.  The gift of handwritten correspondence, so much more than a call or a text message.

My mother received a similar gift.  We enjoyed sharing our letters with each other.

Thank you ~ MandiAnne.

Still snowing!

Just finished Deborah Harkness' Discovery of Witches.  I am looking forward to Shadow of Night.
