Spring Snow

Lady Spring wore white and green.



Sleet and snow with a sharp wind -- it felt like winter this afternoon. The roads were wet but not slick when I came home. Now the temperature has dropped to 30°, and we have about an inch of snow on the ground. Tomorrow's high will be in the 40s, so the snow won't last long. It won't hurt the winter wheat in the photo above. This was taken along Edwards Mill Road, east of Hopkinsville, KY. Little River is just behind the trees at left.

If you click up the photo to its large version, you can see the streaks of falling snow. It was a bleak afternoon, but it really highlighted that hillside of vivid green.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
