Washington's trees were dressed in their finest Easter pinks when Mother Nature decided to add lace in the form of a surprise spring snowfall early Saturday morning.
That last gasp of winter had me initially worried about the fate of my newly transplanted lettuces. But then distracted by the beauty and rarity of mixed-up seasons, I soon didn't care.
Lettuce seeds I can plant any day this month. It's not every day I get the chance to photograph the spectacle of winter and spring all at once.
