the canvas gets color

the rain came earlier this week, washing the remaining snow from all the slopes and streets.  it's been intriguing to watch the transformation of our surroundings - which up until the rain, had remained a white canvas.  as the week went on, colors began popping up from beneath and between the piles of snow.  dark ever greens (dormant and frozen) revealed themselves all across our valley.  a natural mountain pool appeared from its disguise.  there are water features, park benches, wooden bridge walkways and what appears to have been green grass - all previously hidden under the deepest, crispest blanket of snow.

then and now

and while it's sad to see the powder disappear, it's really exciting to discover the new quirks and character of the place we've lived, for nearly a month.
