My gratitude for the warmth and green of springtime is endless. It was a long winter, and that makes springtime all the sweeter.
We've had a plethora of migratory birds this spring. One of my favorites is the Yellow Rumped Warbler. He has yellow splashes on his head, chin, and rump! He catches my eye almost daily. There is nothing drab about this guy.
Of course, I never take our mountain bluebirds for granted. They have set up their nests and appear to be tending to them now. I love these birds!
Another green gift is the veggies growing in my new greenhouse. We are eating only home grown lettuce now. It is stunning how much better it tastes (to me) than store-bought. We always pick just minutes before we eat it. I have "fancier" stuff in the works for the summer in the greenhouse but those plants are still small!
There's lots of green out on the trails too. It may not be obvious to those of you from warmer climes how much greener the grass is now but it is!
And, the aspens. Oh how I love them!
I think that Shyla loves springtime too. I sure do love our time on the trails together.
