It got warm here yesterday, in the low 80’s, but today will be a little more normal, around 70, and not a cloud in the sky at the moment. I like the spring. The flowers and trees are blooming, the grass is turning green, the birds are singing, it’s like nature is ‘all happy’ out there. We even had a fox in our back yard this weekend. Given that we have 6 foot privacy fencing, it was a little surprising when he jumped over it (or maybe crawled is a better word, he did not clear it in a single bound!). Our lawn even got it’s first mowing of the season. Today’s photo was actually taken last May in our back yard, but you get the idea.
Spring is also when a lot of out of town visitors begin to show up. Air Force Academy graduation is just around the corner, and then there is a rush of weddings before the new graduates get shipped out to their assignments. But many people like to come because Colorado Springs is a great place for a summer vacation. There are lots of things to see and do, the weather (especially in the mornings) is very pleasant, it’s affordable, and there aren’t a lot of places quite like it. And it is exceptionally pretty, with our mountain views that dominate the horizon from almost every angle.
