    Ahhhhhh Spring

    I know many of you are still under a deep coating of that white stuff, but here in SW Idaho we are seeing the first signs of spring. Today I noticed that my tulips are coming up! I purchased a dozen or so bulbs from the Grand Hotel last summer (they change out their beds each season and sell the bulbs via their website) and they are up about an inch already!

    I love it here. Life is good.

    I can confirm Rennie's proclamation of an early spring here in the Northwest. This has been a very strange winter, in that there wasn't much of one. Everything is starting to bud where I live and today is another great day with warm sunny skys.

    It's a Seattle kind of day here in the valley of the sun. overcast and drizzely, Temps in the 60's but we'll take it, we need the rain.

    Don, The sun is out and 60, went to mow the yard yesterday and the mower just put out a bunch of smoke, the only cloud in the sky. The view of the Cascades and Pudget Sound is beautiful

    Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall; you mean these names actually refer to some sort of change in the weather??? Poor handicapped 3rd generation southern Californian . . .

    It's a spring day here too Rennie.

    Trees budding out....sun shining....high's in the 50's today.

    It's been that way for several weeks. It'll be a long fire season, I'm afraid.
