The Last Snow?

April 27th, 2016

When we lived in Ohio, there was always at least one snow in April. So when we have snow in April here in Maine, it’s really not anything out of the ordinary.

I appreciate it for the little boost of nitrogen it gives to the growing plants. I appreciate it for its beauty. I appreciate it for the day of rest that comes along with its stillness.

When do you typically get the last snow in your area?

    Same snow as Susy here, since we live only about 20 miles apart… I love the green grass sticking up through the snow, and the way that the snow settles partially in the fallen pine cones, leaving the top part of them exposed. I love the crunchy feel of the snow underfoot, and the joy that is so evident in my dogs as they excitedly bound through it.

    I love snow! (Easy to say in a year like this one where we did not have much of it)
