This is a breath of spring for me. Yesterday a snow storm blew through here.

Really gorgeous photo, Sharon. Try as I might I could not find an internet copy of a reader's letter in our local paper this morning, which I had intended to tease you about. Writer lamented the excessively hot Phoenix summers with examples, indicating that he much preferred the Minnesota winters! Is he mad...you should know since you are familiar with both locals. But, have you ever been here during an Arctic freeze?

Again, your photographic skills are showing brightly. Superb!

Good thing she was there and not here. 0 F and below.

The cold spell we had in Arizona a couple of weeks ago has made it tough for butterflies and hummingbirds because they lost so many flowers for food.

Just gorgeous. No butterflies around here right now. But yesterday our mockingbird was singing.

Such a beautiful shot. Especially for those of us who don't see butterflies in the winter!
