It's NOT SPRING . . . YET!

Colorado Blue Spruce trees in our yard, 20+ ft. tall
Well, it's that time of year, when we get some sunny, clear days, possibly with some warmth and we start entertaining ideas of spring.  And then, we wake up and it's snowing gangbusters, with fat lazy flakes and piling it up on the ground.  Snowing for most of two days, piling up close to a foot of snow.  But then it warms up again, melts it down, makes muck, mud and more.  Just about the time the driveway dries up so you don't smoosh around here comes another round of snow.  And, around and around we go!
Springtime in the Colorado Rockies!  Well, almost . . .

And to my beloved friends . . HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
Love also wraps arms around friends, those people that know us, hang out with us, do things with us, listen to us, laugh and cry with us . . . and love us anyway!  What treasures MY FRIENDS ARE!!!!  How blessed I am! HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!

Yes, Valentine's Day is just about here.  Typically a day to think of romance and sweethearts which is very necessary, but it's also a day to think of those we LOVE!  Family and friends are very important in our lives and today I'd like to say a special THANK YOU to my FAMILY!!!  HAPPY VALENTINES DAY to my FAMILY!!

 We had spring earlier this week, no snow on the ground and mud drying up.  But it has been snowing for most of the last two days.  I put on my snowshoes and went trekking out in the snow with my doggie friend, Bramble!

We have more than eight inches but less than a foot . . so far.  I'm just happy it's piling it up in "my mountains" for our summer water supply.

Bramble and I had a fun time out today and she loves it when I make snowballs to throw for her to catch!
