spring storms

this is the backyard during our latest spring storm....the second one this week.

although the picture doesn't really do it justice, it was a beautiful snow fall. quiet and peaceful. big, fluffy snowflakes. the wet kind that are perfect for making snowballs.

i love spring snows. clean, crisp, fresh, pretty...don't last long. and as with most of colorado's spring storms, this one began fast.

clouds moved in darkening the skies. a few flurries started to fall. then suddenly, the downpour of heavy flakes began their decent blanketing the ground.

since i was not able to get outside, i stood at the window experimenting with my camera and new fauxlaroid app. i thought it gave an old fashioned appearance to the scene making it look sort of 50's with the lighting.

happy day......
