snow on distant hills -
alder catkins shiver
in the breeze.

Like this one a lot. It's wonderful that sometimes it doesn't take many words.

That's how it is here now - Spring has retreated for awhile.

how is it you appear to be more north than me and yet i'm still getting snow. well, it was a small flurry yesterday...we do have narcissus...maybe it's our altitude. . how i love that word 'catkins'
