  • What a way to start the day! Every pond is full of water, grasses and wildflowers are bursting from the ground, and the mountain streams are flowing bank to bank. Almost four inches of rain in May is incredible in so many ways. And our Gascon point gets frequent snow showers. That tells me it is still cold and colder the higher one goes. I continue to remind the newcomers to this area that this is the way may used to be. We still don’t know whether our apple trees will have fruit because nights are still pushing the freezing mark up here.
