The White Rain is GONE! Back to the Business of Blooms

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado CRE# 40005863

You just have to love Colorado!

 

After planting my gardens last weekend, we had three days of freezing temperatures and white rain falling from the sky.

 

That meant we had to find tarps and cover all of our newly planted flowers. 

 

Today the sun is shining bright and temperatures are expected to reach the mid 50's.  I'll take that over freezing anyday!

 

We went out to remove the tarps and let the blooms soak in the sun.

 

Maverick was very concerned about these tarps and had to inspect one before it got dried off and stored away.

 

He is very relieved to have his garden back!

 

The flowers look like they survived!

How pretty, your flower photos, Belinda. Well, you could have had something worse than white rain. You could have had fish rain. Yes, it rained fish at the Oroville dam in California. Apparently, raining fish is a thing. They get caught up in a wind tunnel or something . . .

We're having an odd bout of weather also - 3 days above 90 and then today is in the low 60s. No frost and certainly no snow, but I wouldn't be surprised!

Hi Belinda, now do you think this nice weather could last till after Memorial Day while I'm in Breckenridge for my granddaughter's high school graduation next weekend? I'd really like not to have to pack winter clothing for the official start of the summer season!

Belinda,

I have been hearing about the white rain from the family in Denver.  Glad your plants survived and the sun is shining.  A

Maverick is quite a character - curious too! I think he loves flowers and nature and can live in harmony with people too! 

You're flowers are so beautiful! Thanks for protecting them when they needed shelter. I greatly appreciate it very much!

Your flowers (and photos) are beautiful! It's hard to believe you had snow in May. In the south, it's been warm for weeks, one day the car thermometer registered 100. It's too early for that, girl!

What is white rain?  Does that mean snow?  Hail?  Sleet?  I am glad that the sun is shining again for you!  The garden looks great.

Your blooms are pretty and don't look at all affected by the cooler temps. I think the warmer temps are on the way.
