this is the view out my kitchen window. Remember now, it is the end of March. See that tree in the foreground? It is a Magnolia just about to "pop" with it's beautiful egg shaped flowers. Those trees in the background....maple trees, lots of maple trees, and an apple tree. They are all ready to sprout too. What you can't see very well in this picture is the sky. Specifically, what is falling from the sky. SNOW! OMG, it is snowing in western Washington and it's almost April. We NEVER get snow in the spring. What's a tree to think????
