My time outdoors is keeping me sane, as I can watch for teeny signs of spring each day. The mountains still look wintry!
However, our birds are acting like it's spring! Big flocks of Crossbills have been foraging in our neck of the woods. This is a male, and he's so colorful! Look closely at his beak to understand the origin of his name.
The mountain bluebirds are making me smile every single day! I love taking photos of them.
After each spring snow storm, the snow melts from the pine trees near us while the mountains remain snowy. This view is one of my favorites in the world.
Of course, I am also thankful for our pups. Their antics keep me smiling especially when it's pelting down spring snow! They love it.
