This and That March 2012

Well winter finally arrived in March this year here in the Foothills of California. Spring is in the air as snow finally started falling. 

Sure signs of spring, tulips and nest building

Late season snow had temperatures hovering at 32 degrees. Drops on pine needles flashed between ice and water, this one was caught in the transition

Early morning snow fall
