Spring, Act II: Thinking Pink

Pink tulipAaaahhhh, a perfect spring in Arch City. Not too hot, not too cold, sunny, just enough rain; all the right ingredients for a delightful spring. Two weeks ago the early bloomers–star magnolia, jonquil, bradford pear, forsythia were tuned up just in time for the Easter parade.

Now, we’re pretty in pink and purple. Tulips, redbud, pink dogwood that drop your mouth open and make you grateful for four glorious seasons.
