Spring in the Desert

I always look forward to spring the way a kid looks forward to their birthday…counting the days, waiting, counting, waiting. And then it arrives. And it is a gift to be treasured.

In the desert especially, spring is wondrous event. I’ve been doing an annual trip to Utah in April for many years now and am always awed by how the landscape is transformed for a short time. The desert itself is always amazing but the fact that life survives there is even more so. In the spring, there are potholes filled with water and blooming flowers. I always feel lucky to witness that transformation.
