It's a stretch
More leaves are stretching upward toward the warmth of the sun's spring rays. These leaves are early. By nearly a month. So far they are surviving the very cool evenings. The weather forecasts predict that we may not be dipping below 30 degrees as we move through April; I hope that's true. Leaves on a branch of one of my aspens also leaved out in APRIL. Seems like a stretch...
The mountains are still covered in snow. Makes for a beautiful sight, as it helps define the foothills from the highest, rugged mountain peaks. Will we get more spring storms to help fill the reservoirs? Hope so. Might be a stretch.
