signs of spring

One of the great things about living in Utah is the climate. The winters are mild, and Spring and Fall are so beautiful. I am a big fan of Spring. People here love to complain about the weather as well as anyone, but having grown up in Montana, I know how good we have it. A couple of weeks ago I was telling Mom how beautiful the blooms were on the plum trees they bought us for our backyard. She said her trees weren't yet showing any signs of life.

I have perennials popping up all over. Among them, these hyacinths. Hopefully soon I'll be planting tomato plants. But as I look out the window today, it is snowing. Ahhh, April.
