General weather and gardening in Oracle AZ, at the northern tip of the Santa Catalina mountain range, north of Tucson.

This morning our April showers turned to sleet...and then SNOW! Since then it's been snowing all day, sometimes heavy with temps in the low 30's. Some surfacing are cooling off, allowing for a dusting of the white stuff to accumulate. Looks funny having snow in the air and on the ground with the backdrop of iris's blooming. The potting plants have been moved to the shed.
The birds don't seem to mind, seven hummingbirds are on their feeder, only to be disturbed by the oriole coming over for a sip or two. All the other birds are at the seed feeder and the suet.
A normal spring day in Oracle except for the snow...
