Snow in April

Yesterday I blogged about our thwarted attempt at a planting party at my in-laws in the mountains of Northern California. We brought up a bunch of plants, but due to a series of freak snow storms we never got around to putting them in the ground.

Not only did the snow not let up yesterday, it continued a good part of the night. This morning we woke up to 7 inches of fresh snow on the ground. A winter wonderland straight out of a postcard, albeit a few months late.

We’re safely home in Davis now, but I wanted to share with you some of the photos I took before we left Mount Shasta. Not exactly plant-related, but I hope you’ll enjoy them nonetheless.

Even the drive home way spectacular. We had snow to about 2,000 ft. and then enjoyed stunning clouds in the Sacramento Valley.

  1. Beautiful photos, but I bet you were glad to be able to just drive out of it back into spring. :-)

  2. Snow with everyone else ensconed in spring. How far did you have to travel? Did you spend the night?
