Early Risers

Spring has come late this year. With a late April round of snow and subfreezing temperatures to a wetter and colder than typical May. By Memorial Day the Glacier Lillies and Shooting Stars have typically given way to other spring wildflowers but not this year. They are still abundant and fresh.

While the rest of springs basket is starting to burst forth into bloom I am always thankful for these two early risers that signal spring is indeed here and especially this year.

Time like water

It’s hard to believe that August is well on its way this year. Yes, time flows like water so I guess we just need to jump in and enjoy the flow. Happy Monday to all.
