Snow is not unusual for us in April; however, this amount is ridiculous!  It feels as if  it has been snowing forever, and we won’t even talk about the winds!

Yesterday we had a bit of a reprieve and decided to go snowshoeing, it was beautiful.

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of autumn.” John Muir

I was in awe of the grey hues in the sky. I have been looking for a grey paint and wished that I could take a sample. Bight Frost?  Cold Mist of April? Wild  Bight Grey? Wouldn’t it be delightful to see these colour samples in paint stores!
