The weather may be fickle but nature will not be denied.

spring flowers in Utah

 

Spring's arrival may not have been as precise as one might have expected after a long winter, but Spring is definitely here.

Fruit tree blossoms have made their appearance here in Sandy UT; dandelions have been quick to compete with green grasses ~ their yellow flowers holding their own with their brightness suggesting inevitably that lawn mowing is back on the weekly "to do" list.

Daffodils seem more golden than usual inviting the reading of poems of old.

Even if I might take extra clothing with me "just in case", it seems to get less and less use. Failure to take my gloves led to cold hands on a TRAX platform several nights ago. It had been a conscious decision to leave the gloves behind...

I am always in awe of new growth and the colors of Spring offered by Nature. Sap rising everywhere; leaves unfolding all over.

People helping Nature to prolong the beauty; gardening is back.

Just too, too beautiful and pretty. Thank you for sharing what is going on in Sandy, Ut. It brought back memories of living in PACKERLAND - Green Bay, Wisconsin. We'd take those dandelions and make long, long chain necklaces and in the prime of the dandelion season, we'd visit my Godparent's farm - 9 miles north of Green Bay. There we'd go out in the pastures and pick baskets and baskets of the yellow blossoms off the dandelion weed to make dandelion wine. Took many, many, many of those blossoms to ferment in huge containers over a period of 6 weeks; but golly, that was pretty good wine.

Your blog makes me feel good & that  spring is coming & I should be happy. You took some great photos that make me think of the old days in the eastern part of Long Island. Thanks, Jim

Jane - a friend of mine here is from Green Bay. He takes on a new persona during football season, scarf, cheese and all, office decorations have to be green and gold everything. I have made wine from rose petals but never from dandelions. Would make a potent brew. Thanks for the education. Looking forward to your blogs ~ I have subscribed.

Jim - glad my comments and photos could impart good feelings. Photos allow me to relive past adventures; photos of others allow me an armchair visit into their experiences. Hope you managed to stay dry and well.

You're right Larry, Mother Nature might play tricks on us, but when those buds are ready to open, they will, and do.  Always great to see the "colors of spring".

Roger - you can't keep a good plant down. Must have the color.

Maria - our fruit tree blossoms usually get hit with high winds. This year it was by snow. The crop will no doubt show the difference. Hope you are rewarded.
