The calendar says spring started Wednesday at 5:58 PM. But, winter had something else in mind for the first full day of spring, snow! Over 1.5″ of rain had fallen at our BRL-Maple Brook Farm site in Roseland. But in the mountains on Devils Knob Loop it was snow.

“Devils knob loop right now! Six inches and counting! So pretty!” Jill Soltys Schildkamp told us.

Snowfall in the mountains of the Virginia Blue Ridge isn’t unusual, even into April, but spring eventually wins, and then summer.

But still pretty!
