A photo of lots of  nasturtium leaves.

The snakes and desert tortoises are waking up.
A neighbor reported the first bear sighting this week.
The sweet gum tree is budding, which means I’ve been waking up congested.
Nasturtiums and sierra man-root are exploding all over the trails.
I guess spring is coming on.

Didn’t notice much man-root last year. Calscape doesn’t even show them as growing in our area, but they are everywhere. I may be confusing it with a close relative though.

Spring is nice, but it is always sad to see winter go. Especially when this one was not particularly cold or wet.
Was hoping for one last cold hurrah, but we will see. Still have a few more days until the 20th.
