Not sure what to title this

I came home from work today, put my bike in the back, walked to the front since I don't have a back door lock yet, and this caught my eye:

Right in the middle of the front lawn! I had not seen/noticed it before, and there it was in full bloom. So wonderful.

And then, the tree to the side of my house is starting to pop. I tried to take a good photo, but here's the blurred result.


Spring is coming, so what do I do? I am leaving tomorrow to go skiing in Colorado. Sigh. Where it's 70 degrees in Denver. Sigh. I am hoping hoping I can get some halfway decent skiing in. But it is / will be better than nothing, which is what it would be otherwise. Next year no way am I waiting this long in the year...

So, I'll be back Tuesday. Don't ransack the place. I might be able to check in, might not. Staying with a friend, but also will be tired I'm sure. Oh, that's why I was researching altitude remedies, btw. Last time I went to CO I barfed the whole time. Don't want a repeat.

Have a great time. Sometimes it's just good to get away and get some perspective - whether you can ski or not.

Beautiful. I'm jealous - we have at least another month of cold before anything blooms... :(

Susan, you ransacked your own place!
Mel, thanks!
Churlita, yep.
Monty, actually, there was some ice...on the slopes because of the spring skiing, but it was ok...
Hi HS - thanks for visiting! And now more have popped up.
Laura, I did fall, but didn't get hurt.
Tara - yes...so do I. I need to plant more. Oh, and see if the tulips lived.
T-I'll post more just for you.
