CLICK on photo to see nature's beauty

Today, the weather forecast was for snow down to sea level. I looked and looked for it. We had hail a couple times . . . finally tonight around 5:30, it started snowing. I was riding the bus on my way home. There was not enought to cover the streets but there were areas of curbsides and grass that got white for a few minutes. They are forecasting more for us from midnight to early morning hours and maybe even some for Monday! We will see. . .

I know cities north of Seattle got 7 inches of snow by noon. It was so beautiful on the news but I worried for the tulips that are blooming so profusely now. I didn't hear what the final snow count was in inches there but it made the national news.

OK, so what does this have to do with my blessing I am focusing on today? Well, if you enlarged the photo you would see it! I am counting my blessings this week in the beauty that nature provides no matter what the weather. AND what's it like in "your neck of the woods?"

This little squirrel looks like it has its hands folded in prayer to say a blessing before eating his next meal. . .

You are right about the beauty of nature! It is always a blessing.

We did not have the snow on this side, but Friday had a fierce all day wind and it has stayed cold. Most every sort of weather brings the beauty of nature. The wind mostly brought dust, but then, it has been a blessing for it to stop.

We went to Tri-Cities to look at a little trailer. It was little, but not little enough for us, and who wants a TV-DVD for camping? Well, I guess some people do and it WAS a little trailer. There is one available that is smaller, though and more suited to our style. We will try to get a look at that one in a couple of weeks when we meet up with other PArk Volunteers for a breakfast gathering in Tacoma.

Squirrels are pretty photogenic when you can get them to stand still long enough, aren't they?

Some may hate me... but it was TOO warm in my neck of the woods with temps in the seventies before we were really ready for 'em! Summer has Sprung in parts of Canada... and where we are is one of 'em! What a wonderful photo... well, wonderful photos to be fair! Great shots!

Now this is a shot I missed 2 days ago, I am still thinking about it...I went out to do something and here was a squirrel looking at me quietly and me?..No camera, he was so close...grrrrrr

I don't believe snow will harm the tulips unless it is very heavy. It certainly didn't hurt my daffodils. It does provide nitrogen for the plants plus moisture. Its frost we have to worry about.
We're having a beautiful day with sunshine and warm temperatures.

The date for our Habitat workshop doesn't work for me. We have two events in Alabama the first weekend in May so we'll be going over for those. Also, I have back problems so I'm not sure I could do some of the work. Our club does many worthwhile service projects. I can't take part in all of them. I'm happy to do what I can.

I love it when squirrels do this. What amazes me is that all species do it. Why??? It's so cute!
