Spring Mix

Did you miss it?  A lot of people will tell you today is the first day of spring.  Well it is the first full day of spring, but the "tipping point," the actual event that marks the beginning of spring, happened last night at 10:14!  The rainy weather of the past few days and the forecast of more means we're likely to have a great April for wildflowers.  While I'm looking forward to at least one more trip to Table Mountain, for me the real excitement begins along the trails leading out of Oakland Camp, certain special spots along Highway 70 near Quincy, and the trails from my front door leading up Claremont Mountain.  I'm beginning to see flowers and bugs that aren't there yet.  Imagination is a kind of preview.
