The Last of the Snow
Intermittent snow storms have produced additional snow cover in the mountains, but down here in Utah Valley, the new snow has been melting as fast as it falls. The first evidence of flowers and new Summer growth is beginning to show in warmer spots on the mountainside and lower in the valley. This image shows the last few spots of snow in the shade of the plants and rocks. With temperatures expected to be in the 60s this next week, we suspect there will be no snow in the valleys at all. We took a walk up the hill and saw one or two daffodils blooming and a few crocuses. We had some of those flowers before in the Arizona-Sonora Desert, but they bloomed in January, not March.
