Dissolving blanket

During the night it snowed quite heavily. At least heavily enough to have left a soft white blanket over the lawn and flower beds. We awoke, however, to a bright blue sky and warm April sunshine which has melted the snow as quickly as it came ... it has now almost gone. A magic trick of nature!

The snow having now melted from the flower border leaves the small blue grape hyacinths waving in the spring breeze ...

I love gardens, too bad I only have a small balcony where I grow plants (in winter just inside the house). You could join the green thumb sunday and contibute your nature shots =) Take care!

Hello! I am new to snow country and I cannot believe how fast snow can melt! I guess I always assumed that snow would lay around for weeks - well guess again. It really does not hang around long, even in winter around WA where I live now. I used to live north of SF.

OMG, I didn't read that the photo was animated and wondered what my frigging eyes were doing to me as I saw blades of grass and such moving.......I have to laugh now at my stupidity.
