In the Shadow of the Mountains

Delighted to live in the Shadow of the Mountains!

Early evening sky looking southeast from my back door.

Storm clouds to the northeast.

North view from my gardens, clouds lifting.

My Farewell to Winter

Our mountains have a fresh blanket of snow...
Winter's final frolic before his acquiesce.  
The valley is green and alive...
 Awakened by the warm breath of Spring.
 Two contrasting worlds...
one bidding adieu
and the other sweet anticipation.
Both beautiful in their own right.


  1. Farewell to winter indeed :-)
    The mountains are just breathtaking.

  2. Did you write that poem? I loved it! We live with mountains on one side and the beach on the other, but there is never snow on our mountains.

  3. Thank you, Noelle. I fill very blessed to live here.

    And yes, Africanaussie, I did write the poem. Now if if I can just finish the workshop assignment. Are you done?


Welcome to my gardens!
Your comments are the sweet nectar that keeps me posting.
So glad you stopped by!
