Spring arrives.

My backyard. South Mountain Desert Classic, Spring 2008

Spring is here. Yes, I meant spring. December is over and therefore spring is here in the desert. I know you hate me right now, but don't worry, you probably only have 4 more months of winter if you live in most of the US. The mountain in my backyard is starting to get green, at least as green as it gets. Little wild grass shoots come up and believe me, we do not take that for granted. The Hedgehog cactus (seen right) start to get flowers and plants that looked like dead become alive. On a wet winter like we have had this year, the wildflowers come out and take over the brown mountains that surround Phoenix. Well, I may cheer for a team that can't buy a NCAA championship to save our lives, but at least I can mountain bike 20 miles with shorts on in January.

hannah I'm so happy for you and your little flowers. Ironically I covered this very subject in my blog today.

I'll put up a link to your blog on my blog, as soon as my wife or an 8 year old child teaches me how to do that.
