Juxtaposition

Snow powdered the mountains above our home today and there was a definite chill in the air.



Yet, in our yard on the bench below, hot pink chrysanthemums were nearing full bloom.


Their white sisters had already arrived.


I even found (a very sedate) bee enjoying the last frostless day.

I'm afraid my impatiens are on their last legs. Last night it froze, so their beauty may be a thing of the past! These are such beautiful pictures.

Snow already? Love seeing the flowers. That's what I miss most about living in the desert.
