Tree Buds in January

Tree Buds in JanuaryIt’s only January. We had a few really warm beautiful days and now there’s buds on the Mulberry tree.  I have never seen this tree bud like this before March.  This tree tries to kill me every year so I am not looking forward to an early allergy season.     

Spring and Mountain Hiking Trails

Spring and Mountain Hiking Trails

Looking forward to spring and this photo is a throw back to last spring. January always seems so much longer than 31 days. This is an entrance to a mountain hiking trail in the Cibola National Forest. When it’s really dry and there is a fire danger many if not all of these trail get closed.

That plant with the white bloom of flowers on top is a Yucca which New Mexico adopted as it’s state flower in 1927.
