It's not unusual for us to have up and down days for the entire spring season, but this year, winter just does not want to let go. So I took these photos of some of the crabapple trees in my yard so I would have something more to remember than fresh snow on the surrounding mountains at least once a week, chains over Donner summit at least once a week, a daily winds from breezy to blow you down and demolish the newly planted red peppers. No, we are not having a pleasant or even tolerable spring – but spring reminds me to be ever strong and optimistic.
