I know the picture above may not seem like much, but for those of us who are living on this mountain, it means spring is here. These little buds are bluets. They will start popping up around camp and that is how I know spring has arrived. I look for these every year about this time. I had to look hard today. They were hiding under a tree. After the bluets show up, I will start looking for trillium. We do have a couple around the kitchen that I love to see every spring. Yesterday was a beautiful spring like day. The high was 51º. There were hikers roaming all over the mountain. It was a great day to sit on our back porch, enjoy the view, and the soak up some vitamin D. We are currently looking at clouds today. It is not looking promising for a repeat of yesterday.
