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.
