Purple

My favorite color is purple. I have my own psychological/color theory why this is. But that’s neither here nor there. Flowers are a bloomin’. I found some incredible purple wildflowers in the park.

Spring is Springing?

The calendar says it’s April. Obviously old man winter forget to look at the date. This was my backyard yesterday morning. I actually took a look outside around 6:00 AM and there was more snow than this picture shows. There was a good couple inches of snow. Of course, it all melted by afternoon. There’s…
