Good To Grow, Liza's photos, signs of spring

The wisps of snow we got a few days ago are gone, save for in the mountain tops and in the shadows.

Everyone here is grateful for the moisture. It’ll take a lot more to end our drought but every little bit helps.

The flowers are clearly enjoying the precipitation, and the bees are enjoying the flowers:

Spring, spring, spring. It can seem so far away when you’re surrounded by snow and ice.

But it’s not far away. It’s right around the corner.

Even the birds know it. All day, big flocks of Sandhill Cranes have been starting their journey home (they spend their winters at a wildlife refuge about an hour and a half south of Albuquerque). They make a riot of noise when they fly overhead.

The green stalks in these photos are not signs of spring. They’re more like signs of winter – they’re onions and garlic that have been growing the last few months. But their harvest will be coming up fast, too.

Yeah, the signs are here.

Spring is near.
