My favorite sure sign of spring is when the Mountain Bluebird returns. Well, they came back on the 12th, in all their blue glory!
The temperatures have been in the low 50’s during the day which means most all the snow, and ice, is melted. It also means the hillsides are taking on a distinctive green hue owing to the grass shoots coming up. Yes, spring is really here to stay!
However, int he mountains there can still be a snow shower… like this morning… 1 inch of the fluffy white stuff. That’s okay, the Bluebirds remind us it won;t stay for long!
