Nice picture

It could be small patches of snow left in the valleys that don't get sunshine. Some of the high peaks in this region have micro glaciers where the snow from successive seasons and surface thaw packs down to form an ice filled valley.

The mountain behind our town has a cave that has ice all the year round. It used to be mined for ice to send to Milan before the industrial production of ice was possible. It is said to have been visited by Leonardo da Vinci. Some have likened the mountains in the background of the Mona Lisa to those behind Lecco.

Than come over to our place.

We have got plenty of snow with plenty of salt - bad for the woodwork:(

Today there will be rain with warm winds-that does not sound good.

No not me. Just a photo I found on the internet. Actually it looks to me as though it may be a young woman in the photo.

Impressive amount of snow must be a pain to clear.
No snow in NL, just rain...

Another sunny day in Northern Italy.

I went to take the sails off the boat to wash them and get a minor repair done.

I found the primulas out on a patch of grass near the club. The silly things think it is spring time. I'm not surprised actually it seemed like a fine spring day to me too.
