The Winds of Spring Have Arrived — Thursday, April 8, 2021

The Spring winds have arrived.Β  They come after the air warms

The mountains surrounding us are still chilled and full of snow

They are a delight to see with the sun shining on them–

But, they too, need to warm and melt—-bringing water to cities, towns, and farms

Therefore, the wind blows.

Sometimes bringing more snow (The Universe is very thoughtful….it would not be good to have the snowmelt ALL AT ONCE)

Sometimes bringing rain;

Helping the trees bring the sap from the roots to the tips of branches.

Wind…,here where we live, blows from now until the middle of June (or so)

Bringing freezing cold, dusty warm, heart-stopping beauty back to our land.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

    • It froze two nights ago, ice on running water froze so they are toast. There is a possibility of some late blooms making it through, but…you know how that goes.


  1. What a gorgeous red flower….is it a tulip? And the mountains are awesome. I love the snow on them. Thank you for wonderful pics!
