It's Thankful Thursday and I am so thankful that our snow has stopped falling and the day is bright and clear. It is still very cold, 26 degrees, but at least there is hope that each day will get warmer. May, oh May, please come and stay. There is a bit of advice the nurseries give out, here in Colorado, and that is that you shouldn't plant until after Mother's Day and the longer you wait the better. I'll admit to being impatient waiting but I'm so glad I hadn't done anything yet. I fear my flowering cherry tree may not bloom this year; the lilac looks good but we will just have to wait and see. Hubby and I do have some plans to plant a few more trees but again, that will wait. I found these photos and wanted to share. The winter white snow is beautiful, even in May. I did not take these.
This one could have been taken at our lake around the corner.
This summer, in July, we will be taking a cruise to Alaska-the inland passage to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. This is quite a splurge for us and I was hoping we might see the Northern Lights, but have been told it is too late in the season to see them. Aren't these just incredible! We are looking forward to seeing Alaska; one excursion I want to do is visiting and possibly going dog sledding. We will be with our bff's, Jim and Barb, our next door neighbors in Ca. I know it seems like a long way off right now, but July will be here before you know it.
I hope you are having a fantastic week and if you are getting our storm, you are able to stay inside! I'm hoping the mosquitoes and mayflies will be killed by the freezing temps.
