Spring flowers make me smile.

Spring flowers on South Mountain, Phoenix

Winter showers bring March flowers. It's flower time here in the desert, and this year is going to be a great one. We have had a excessive amount of rain here in the desert this winter, already surpassing our yearly average in the first two months.

I went for a hike this weekend to see the flowers. That's right, you heard me... I TOOK A HIKE! YEAH! It was only about a mile on a fairly flat trail, and I did bring my crappy crutch for a little stabilization, but it still felt so good to get out and smell the dirt. Walking is coming along much better although I still am doing the old woman shuffle and gimping like I'm wearing a diaper. Sweet.

My lil baby sis was here this weekend and turned 20 years old so I want to wish the darling a very happy birthday. She is an amazing young lady who is growing into her own while studying to be a nurse. She may age, but to my other sisters and I, she will always be our little baby sister. What a cutie. She was very excited about escaping the winter storms and 2 feet of snow in Ohio and squealed before laying down in my front yard. Yep, the pink rocks are my front yard. Don't be jealous.
