Sunday , in the Gresham , Oregon , area we had thunder-snow! It was a rather raucous herald to the official arrival of Spring the next day!
The days since have been a fairly steady succession of rain or snow until this morning when the sun shone through the cloud curtain.
The way into seasonal change has been frequently decorated by snow showers, gray skies, rain showers, gray skies . . .
As a result, the creek on the front of the property is still running high and filling the front man-made pond.
But sun-starved or not our Camilla bush is bravely blooming!
The daffodils are defiantly facing the snow and rain showers
determined to bloom in their own good time . . .
rain , snow , thunder , or whatever weather may show
even some patches of blue sky
and the forsythia bush has been stalwart too , celebrating spring with branching rays of gold , perhaps daring the sun to do the same and join the fun! <3
