Down the Mountain to Spring Time
How wonderful to see the flowers again! The desert is starting to bloom, and with all the winter rains, it's promising a gorgeous display. I had to jump out of the car on my drive up the mountain to get some pictures.
It may be spring in the desert, but I've still got snow at my house. As you can see if you look beyond the palm trees, way over to the mountain beyond. Still lots of snow up here.
We have had some lovely weather though. But I know the weather patterns too well. The true spring of 6000 feet is some time in April, and the last freeze is usually Mother's Day. So for now I'll have to enjoy the flowers down below.
