And Bo sure likes it too 🙂
Our main objective was to get some birthday pictures of Claire since her b-day was coming up a few days later (I always try to take some pictures before each birthday to commemorate how each child looks in that moment of time)…some of those pictures are back HERE.
Now those leaves are only a memory…some clung on ever so tightly for just a few more days…
…and then they dropped, all fallen, turned crunchy, and bagged up and taken away.
Those tree trunks were barren, black against a white winter sky for a few weeks,
…and suddenly they are heavy-laden with balls of bright green buds, swollen with pollen that makes us so darn sick with allergies but gives way to pop out such beautiful new green (soon I’ll have pictures of those…but for now, just imagine their effect filling up our lungs and causing all kinds of itchy eyes and sniffling…ha!) I’m supposed to be super sick with allergies right now…I am every year. But I went to the allergist early this year and started on some prescription medication so although I still feel partial effects of all those blooms, I’m holding strong so far. Max and I are the worst hit with allergies in our family and now Max is back just in time. Crossing our fingers we can handle all this gorgeousness waiting to pop out this year!
Spring is coming quick here in the desert.
