It’s snowing again today and should continue for another day.
One of the best things about snow here in the desert is the moisture it provides to the plants in the early spring as it melts, giving them a nice jump start. We get so much more moisture (in the form of snow) in the winter than in the hot summer months. We fight the dry heat, which can really take a toll on plants.
We’ll soon be leaving on our winter vacation to warmer climates. We leave with lots of snow on the ground and hopefully when we return, it will be to the very beginning of spring. Even then we can certainly get more snow, but it probably wouldn’t stay on the ground for very long.
Ahh Spring and Summer. How I miss you.
