Ah, spring is here. And Springtime in Colorado means snow. Not much. It melted by noon. But I rushed outside to take in a few pictures this morning before that happened. It was so quiet. A bird chirped in the background. Fresh snow blanketing spring blooms on the plum trees. We have 2 types of plum trees in our backyard. The one that yields pink flowers is still too young to produce descend sized plums. The other blooms white flowers and is an overachiever in the plum department. But the fruit does make good jelly and provides shade for the swing set.
