When the sprinkler and the sandbox and the kite are being put to good use, it must be spring!
Mind you, these pictures were taken ten days before our recent two-day blizzard. At least it's never boring around here! Fortunately, in this particular spot we only got about an inch of very wet accumulating snow; a few miles west (up over the ridge), they got five inches. Yesterday I stepped outside in the middle of the afternoon and it sounded like a rainstorm, there was so much snow melting off the trees and roofs.
