Buttercups and Snow in the Forecast

There are a few buttercups beginning to show up on the hillsides, and the springs are flowing above the ground now. Wind and snow are in the forecast for the next few days, and then another quick warm-up, so it's the usual wavering back and forth between seasons.

On today's walk with the dogs, on the ten acres I noticed a few more ponderosas that are starting to die. I'm hoping that this will be an "off" year for the pine white butterflies.
