April snow showers bring May snow showers


When you live over 1000 miles from the nearest ocean, weather turns on a dime (large bodies of water regulate temperature fluxes, because water changes temperature slower than air).

After a ridiculously warm spring, some areas of Colorado experienced 8-10 inches of snow a few weeks ago. The snow crab apple tree (ironically named, I know) managed to shed all the heavy white stuff without losing its branches, though it did drop the flowers. 😦 Last year, we got snow after the “last frost date”. Poor ‘pacas had already been sheared too!

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
