spring defies winter's strong hold

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. 

the evening sun added some nice backlighting
One of the crabapples in back was particularly boisterous with blossoms

i'm back

At 2 years and 12 days
It's been way too long since I've posted. I was in the burial ground of work and am just now catching up. What better way to start off than posting a photo of my now 2-year-old grandson. I babysit him on Friday's - a day I look forward to always. He makes me laugh. He makes me feel young. I take photos of him every Friday and it seems he changes every week. His facial expressions are just so - sooooooo - enjoyable!
