Up the road, afternoon

The oddity of grains of snow falling on spring flowers out of a sunny sky. If what they say is true, the Inuit must surely have a word for it.

My husband (who is still in England) sent me pictures of our house and garden -- buried under the proverbial "blanket" of snow. Apparently it fell, so quietly, during the night.

The weather differences accentuate the physical distance . . . as we are in shorts here in Texas, and I sunburned my neck on a long walk this morning! You would like walking around here, I think.

It has a very specific smell, that I remember so strongly from my childhood.

With climate change, we will probably want a word of our own. Snaffle comes to mind. From which you might say: the fields are snaffled. There is snaffling in the garden. Molly came in her coat snaffled.

Thanks, Bee, for visiting from so far away, and Plutarch for the chuckle!
