I looked out the window and
what did I see?
Popcorn popping
on the Apricot tree...

It has been such a beautiful day today. I've got spring fever! I really don't want to work. I can't concentrate on my job. I spent a good chunk of the day already pruning trees and bushes, washing the car, soaking in the sun - a pretty amazing day in March in Utah - even though I have so many projects to finish designing.

The apricot tree is in full bloom. The blossoms caught the light and they glistened with vibrant white against the crisp blue sky. I had to get my camera... It was a magical moment.

Spring brings feelings of restlessness. I want to get out. I want to travel. I want to go away and discover new things and new places. I want to go back to old places and rediscover fond memories. I have an itch to not be where I am.

Speaking of itching, spring brings allergies and sneezing! And with gusto!

Spring brings new life... the garden is literally bursting out with signs of life - some prematurely as I know a snow storm or two are still on the horizon.

No real gay theme here - but I guess that's okay - there will be plenty of time for that, but not today - it's too beautiful to destroy with more thoughts of angst.

Happy Spring!

I love spring SO freaking much. I can't even tell you how much I agree with you.

Yeah, but spring in Utah means 70 degrees and sunny one day and 32 degrees and snow the next... kind of an analogy of my life - totally angst-free and reborn one day, and full of struggles the next.
