We are finally getting some warmer weather. :D
Been one cold wet Spring. Last week it finally started to warm up. Got to 85 yesterday.
Looking like our plants noticed the warmer weather also.
Rhododendrons bloomed bout 3-4 weeks later then the last few years. Actually I think our weather pattern this year is more back to normal. Previous 4 or 5 Springs seemed to be getting earlier every year.
Anyways things be in full bloom as of yesterday..

Cessna 172, Boots Jr is looking at Embry Riddke as a possible college candidate. They have their own Air Force - around 40 aircraft.

Horny toads in Sedona area are a unique adaptation- red rocks red to match the locale, rather than the customary grey color.

Liked the Photos of Arizona boots.
Only been there once. Enjoyed the scenery. Something different then every thing green all the time :lol:

Yea Russ I like Spring also. Love hate relationship tho. Enjoy the beauty of it but hate the endless weekends of yard work and pressure washing off moss that accumulated during the winter
Thinking I got over the hump last weekend on Spring chores. :lol:

Thanks guys
Bill

Sage is my second fave herb behind coriander or cilantro as you guys call it, I just love the smell of fresh cilantro on my hands, love smelling it. I have heaps of dried herbs from wife's garden. We got herbs for Africa.
