Weather here along the Colorado River is now in the mid 70's and early signs of spring can be seen everywhere. A few photos from a walk around in our campground.

EM, thank you for not asking me the names of the flowers
I believe the flower in 3 and 6 are called "Fairy Dusters" that are just coming into bloom.

thanks CC, it is nice to have warmer days and see the flowers coming out. Now we will be waiting for our native cacti to start blooming, that is when you know it is spring in the desert.

Head S/W young man. Head S/W. With all the weather you have had, I bet you are going to have a beautiful "rest of the year" Stan.

Nice Bob. We just got home from a long trip with two nights of hard freezes to make us appreciate the end of the trip. Lots of stuff starting to flower but the cold got them.
