Colorado Native, Signs of Spring
I feel like maybe I should call this “Summer Is Calling,” but I’m still celebrating the wonder that is Spring in the Rocky Mountains. Spring is when Colorado shows every side of it’s weather personality. Last Friday, I started the day in flip flops and by 7, I was pulling out the snow boots. It’s the time of year when you might enjoy such Colorado wonders as rain shine, snow shine, or thunder snow — and that’s all before you’ve finished your morning coffee.
Regardless of what season it feels like, Spring is definitely here!
During the Spring, the scent that wafts through the air is absolutely delicious. The scent of lilacs is by far my favorite, but it’s the smell the Mountain Mahogany emits this time of year, that really lets me know I’m home. I can’t describe it, nor did I even realize I had been smelling it all my life until I spent a Spring in Fort Collins and noticed the air just didn’t smell right.
Wake up Bambi!
It’s the bears that have been absent from the wildlife scene all winter and I know they’re up when my big muppet of a dog is pacing and barking at 3am. He’s pretty sure the bad bear is after his bone. Hence, it’s also the time of year I become VERY careful about my trash, saving any food items or packaging for the morning of trash day.
Here fishy fishy!
Our favorite sign of spring — YOU!
