The calendar says spring, but the weather says winter.

It was a beautiful transition to see this transformation occur overnight. It began in the late afternoon when huge puffy snowflakes fell, interspersed with the rain. In a matter of minutes, only snowflakes rained down, and began the makeover of spring to winter.

Upon waking, the landscape had the appearance of a black and white photo, with various shades of gray. But soon after, the clouds began to part and the deep blue sky brightened the view, seeming to waken the colors much akin to Dorothy’s experience in the Wizard of Oz.

In the midst of all the snow, one of the eagle pair devotedly remains in the nest. Can you see the head peeking out?

Let's see what season tomorrow will bring...


  1. Beautiful snow photos! I love the one of the potted plants on the porch.

    On a more distressing note, have you heard of 'long-billed syndrome' in NW birds? :/

  2. Thanks, Tui! It actually snowed THREE days in a row, but it is finally warming back to normal temps and the normal springtime mix of rain/shower/sunbreaks.

    I hadn't heard about the 'long-billed syndrome'. Thanks for the link; I'll check it out.


I love comments, and visiting blogs of people who leave them! Thanks for visiting!
