It’s beginning to look an awful lot like summer in downtown Albuquerque. (Starting to feel like it too.)
The cottonwood trees are starting to flower and, true to form, they’re still hanging onto a few of last year’s leaves.
An uncharacteristic fog over the Rio Grande and volcanoes in Albuquerque appeared for a few moments last week. While the cottonwoods in the bosque still haven’t dropped last year’s leaves, some of the other trees are starting to leaf out in green. Kind of a neat mix of winter and spring all at once.

At long last, the tiniest hint of spring. Not that this was a particularly cold winter — but it was, as always, a very brown winter.
