Snow in May is pretty normal at our elevation in the Rockies, and it is a key source of moisture that helps us in the summer. However, every year, I am ready for spring by May. Fortunately, our pups make me smile my way through the May snow storms.
They played happily on the day of the latest storm.
And then we were gifted a bluebird day on the day after the storm.
For a little while, the snow stayed on the trees set against the azure sky. Amazing!
I am thankful, however, that the bluebirds will doubtless return very soon. They've "arrived" several times already but they retreat to lower elevations when we have snow storms. I'm ready to enjoy their kind of spring beauty!
I keep reminding myself that a snowy spring will lead to amazing wildflowers. I will be thankful for that!
