The weather is a bit more rainy than we are used to here in sunny Colorado but there is a big silver lining. We live in a semi-arid climate and we don’t get that much moisture. We need rain in the spring time to soak the soil, fill the lakes and replenish the aquifers. The rain also helps with the flowers. The slideshow (click on the image to begin the show) above shows some flower photos I have taken over the years.
