Greening Up

    Every day now there is more and more green in the valley.  The leaves are erupting from the branches and the perfume of the Cottonwood trees is noticeable whenever we go go outside.  The grass is beginning to grow in its haphazard way; getting too high in some places and just peaking through last year’s dead blades in other places.

    Some of the early flowers, like daffodils are in full bloom, while other flowering plants are yet to develop their buds.  I planted my peas a couple of weeks ago and their green sprouts are just beginning to poke through the soil.

    Spring is such a time of rapid change, with new life optimistic, and fighting for their time in the new warmth provided by the strengthening Sun.

    It's a glorious time.
