Spring Has Arrived in Colorado
The weather in Colorado is always a mixed bag. The weather forecast dudes seem to get it right about half the time. I understand that it is hard to predict our weather with the Rocky Mountains playing havoc on the weather pattern, but it would be nice to know two days out what is going to happen.
This past week has been mild and warm and the trees and plants are beginning to think it is time for them to poke their heads out from their winter slumber. Hopefully, snow and freeze is not in the forecast anytime soon. In fact, I would be OK if snow and freezing temperatures did not make a return until about November of 2015. Hey – a girl can dream.
As I went outside this morning, I noticed the flowering crab apple tree in my front yard had somehow bloomed flowers over night. I love these trees. There are plenty of them in my neighborhood in light pink, dark pink and white. Ours is white and it gets a million of these beautiful blooms making for some great eye candy.
Here is an iPhone shot of the first blooms which I captured this morning.
Oh how I love spring!!!!
