Snow and spring gardens

I loaded these pictures on backwards and am too lazy to turn them around, so this is weekend going backwards. We went to Seward and Whittier over the weekend. This would be an avalanche on the way home on Sunday. No. We didn't see it happen ... just plenty of avalanche chutes that were full.
If MN snow is getting you down right now ... just think. This could be you. There was so much snow in Whittier it was downright amazing. Not much to see there ... will have to go back in the summer and see it from a new perspective.
Stopped at the tunnel going into Whittier and walked around the car. Have you ever seen such a thing. All 4 rims had these interesting icicles on them.
Sunshine through clouds ... the drive from Seward to Whittier.
Whittier

Sunday morning dawned absolutely beautiful. So glad we were able to enjoy a sunny day.
Playing "follow the leader" ....
Quite a blustery day to be walking around town ... but walk we did!
Still smiling. On our way to eat out and visit the hardware store for some refined shopping!
The garden ... transplanted tomatoes and green peppers last night. Not sure the green peppers were ready to move to a bigger pot ... but they're finally growing and green. All the window sills in the living room and kitchen are now full of plants. Yikes! Amber is busy giving greenery away .. she has too many. :) Mine are looking ... so far, so good ...chives didn't come up and only have 2 dead ones that I pitched so far. Will be interesting to see what I have to plant them in next! Will I own my own dirt by then or not ... THAT is the question.
Time for a shower and to head for work. Have a great day!
