A Touch of Spring...





"No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow."
Proverb

Spring was definitely blooming in Sacramento...despite the rain!


While in Mammoth...
the winter storm we've been waiting for all winter finally arrived...






For those who have followed my travels on 
I've finally started posting again!!!
Join me on the Celebrity Equinox on the way

  8. Thank you Tatjana!!!

    Thanks Justine! I'm jealous of your beautiful spring blooms!!! The one downside of living in the mountains is a very delayed spring...but when it comes...it's beautiful!!!

    I know what you mean LInda! Sacramento is 5 hours from us, on the other side of the Sierras and it was definitely headed for Spring!

    I know what you mean NatureFootstep and Carol! I didn't miss Spring until we were in Sacramento and saw all the beautiful flowers in bloom!

  15. I took the first shot on Monday of last week, the snow shot on Sunday of this last week...yep! We've got 3-4 feet of new snow from this last storm over the weekend! Today, though, is beautiful blue skies and quite warm so it's melting fast...
