waiting for spring

I'm waiting patiently for spring.  My kitchen counter looks like spring.
My front door looks like spring.
But my thermometer says its winter with highs in the 30's and wind chills in the 20's. And a hard freeze is predicted for tonight.   I saw this forecast yesterday so I took a walk with my camera to capture some of the spring blooms and tender shoots that will probably get frozen tonight!

Hurry Spring!

easter 2018

Last weekend The Ponderosa hosted our annual Easter picnic and egg hunt.  Seventy plus friends and family members gathered for some good food and to visit with each other.  We had egg hunts for the littles and the adults!  I'm not sure which one has the most fun.  The weather was ideal.  This party is an annual tradition and we always  have it on the Saturday before Easter. We grill ribs, and chicken and hot dogs and everyone brings a dish to create an Easter feast.
