Spring has sprung!

Well Spring has sprung! ha ha It is officially Spring. The buds and blossoms are sprouting and life is reaching once again towards the sun! Did you ever sit real still and watch a plant turn to face the sun? They move. No one knows how exactly.

Here in the desert the soil has been made moist by the monsoonal rains and the sun is starting to warm up the soil and the wild flowers are coming out! They are only here briefly but are awe inspiring.

Some years it is possible to drive 75 miles through Death Valley and see wild flowers in bloom on both sides of the road! Some people call that a miracle. I think of it as the Universe just showing off! ha ha ha ha

Got to go pick up some medicine for the Mrs. and will use it as an excuse to buy her dinner somewhere. Haven't been anywhere for several days. A trip across the river will be fun. Always remember, wealth is not what you have, wealth is being contented with what you have. Contented people are very rich.

Peace,

    1. I honestly don't know what I would do with more money than I have now. I seem to have everything I need and money to replace stuff when it wears out.

  3. Still a lot of snow here unfortunately, but today will be above freezing for part of the day.

    1. as you can see, it is 75 degrees at 9:30 in the morning and expected to hit 90+. Beautiful spring day! I anticipate 5 months of 100+ this year! Global warming? seems like we have broken quite a few records in recent years. It doesn't matter to me much, I'll only be around for a few more summers anyway.

  4. It's been quite warm here in Vegas over the past week. Grass, weeds and tiny flowers are popping up all over the place.

    1. I've been up there twice in the last month. I had to go when the wind was blowing like crazy! It could cool down one more time but I have my doubts.
