This is where I live. A small rural community nestled between the mountains.
No, this is not current. It is a pic from 2 years ago in October.

Here is what it looks like in winter.

What has this to do with gardening? I don't know. Please excuse my side trip.

That's amazing. As much as I love snow, I think that's a bit too much for me.

Lovely pictures, but a tad cruel to post that winter pic at this time of the year. June, even July, would have been much kinder :shock:

Wow Jal, that looks like something right out of a postcard. Really, you could make a small fortune selling some of your pics as postcards (they're better than many I've seen)!

You are always able to keep that snow over on the mountains so it is just pretty and not a nuisance, right??

Very nice pictures. Your scenery is breath taking.....or maybe that was the stairs I just climbed.

The only side trip needed here is my side trip to come visit you little slice of heaven.

Even though that would be overshadowed by the joy of picking your gardening brain. 8)

Okay James, the 2,238,697 people in the metropolitan area of Salt Lake City is just behind that little hill in the right foreground, yes?

A lovely home . . . it helps all of us to know that there are places like that.

Well, not exactly. Evanston Wyoming is the next town in that direction.

SLC is just 90 miles South and a little West, but there are some big mountains between us to kinda keep them at arms length. :lol:

Logan Utah is the nearest large city. There is over 100,000 population there now....... and its growing.
