Pink Snow

It's a typical spring in western Washington.

As I drove home yesterday through high winds blowing dark clouds that threatened rain and -- maybe -- snow, great clouds of pink petals from flowering trees blew across my windshield.

Four trees just across the back fence from us dropped nearly an inch accumulation of pink petal-snow.

I shivered.

I found the first few spring narcissus in a pot in our side yard, brave yellow flowers like tiny daffodils.

I shivered.

The dogs raced outside to play, turned on thier heels, and demanded to be returned to the warm house, which they then raced around like maniacs.

I shivered.

Spring in Washington.
