Mountain Monday

In case you hadn't heard, this is what Utah looked like 13 days ago, on April 6th. We got 8 inches of snow that day, much to all our horror.









It looks like that was Mother Natures last attempt to keep winter around, thank goodness!

Here is what my corner of the world looks like today.




It is hard to see unless you click on the picture and see it larger. But the green of Spring is creeping up the flanks of the mountains, chasing away Winter, while the rest of us cheer in delight.




Here the new leaves on the wild roses begin to unfold, while the winter's rose hips wither away.











I am not sure if you can tell, but Ms. Tenacious is gone. I like to think she decided that it was time to move on to another part of life, death is just a part of it, and letting go, a birth, not a tragedy.

We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the life that is waiting for us.” – Joseph Campbell



Another sign that Spring is here, baby animals!



I am not sure what these thistles are really, but we call them porcupine eggs.







Soccer season is here! There are few things I love more than watching my Little Man play soccer. He really enjoys it and I love cheering for him and the rest of his team.



Thank you for letting me share my corner of the world with you. Seeing Spring through your eyes makes it all brand new.

My coworker said it's supposed to snow again on Friday. I then punched her in the face.

K J and the kids said...

Thank you for your sweet thoughts on Ms. Tenacious. :) She's better off.

LOVE the pictures. LOVE spring.

Love the pictures! And yes, right now, TODAY, it's beautiful in Utah, but I always fear what is around the corner until at least May.... : )

You know I love the blossoms and flowers but I LOVE, LOVE the burrs. For some reason those prickly things just speak to some part of me. Does that mean I'm prickly?

Oh lovely, Jo! So glad Spring has sprung in your world.

Hey Jo, was great to hear from you again. As usual you take gorgeous photos.
When I flew into SLC last Thursday I marveled at how lovely the mountains looked.
I am having a good visit with the family.
keep in touch

I can't believe Ms. Tenacious is gone, but of course she is in our hearts....
