Springtime in the Rockies...

...or, the view from the my end of the leash.

Our daily walks have turned less into a chore and more into a delight.

Yep, spring has finally made an appearance and for those who haven't experienced the Utah spring, I thought I'd share some photos.

So, here for your enjoyment:


We're headed out and Lulu takes time to stop and "sniff the dandilions"...


Hey, it's that Richard dude - our neighbor..."Hi Richard.."


Proof positive that the "early bird" doesn't always get the worm..these 2 were out at 4:30 for goodness sakes!

Blue skies and snowcapped mountains...what could be better? Maybe underground power lines...

Pretty trees and curvy walkways....

Complete with the rare "Idon'tknow Whatthis isagus" in full bloom...


The Wasatch mountains..and Utah power lines....

Braxton & Lulu's version of the "Internet Café" where they stop to check their pee-mail...


One of the surest signs of spring has arrived in Utah....road construction signs.


Blue skies and some sort of tree blooming.. (Hey, I was raised in Arizona..bet I could name any cactus....)

It's just terrible to have to stop at an intersection and look at this, huh?



Back home in Grandma Evelyn's garden...


Watching the neighbor boys play on their rope-swing...and hearing that all too familiar refrain.....

"Oliver - put the chicken down!!"

Hope your day was spectacular!

Spring is wonderful, isn't it? New life and warm temperatures. You guys deserve it after a long cold winter.
