Echeveria 'Pinky'

The weather has changed from the super cold with snow to mild (50+F) with periods of heavy rain, separated by periods of sun. In the Northwestern U.S (Oregon & Washington), these are called "sun breaks". I haven't had much time to take photos so this is from our photo archives, taken about 4 years ago. Enjoy.

Osita & Ladybug in the snow

Ever since Osita was a puppy she's considered Ladybug to be her closest buddy. Tonight was no exception. Snow and ice, no matter, gotta go over and rub noses (or in Osita's case, lick noses). We had 3.25 inches (8.25 cm.) of snow and it's about 21F (-6.11C).
But, this is Oregon. Back to springtime next week, with warmer temperatures and rain.
