Oh how I love this time of year.....for many reasons. As old man winter goes away, signs of spring seem to show itself out every window. So, when the hubby said, "Let's go take a look at some calves" this evening, I reached for my camera and climbed aboard. I was struck by the contrast of the "newness" of the baby calves and lush, fragile, green grass against the dormant mesquites. The wives tale in these parts is that the mesquites won't bud until after the last freeze......so I guess we are still due for another one. Regardless, it is nearly time to pull out the straw hats and flip flops......bring on SPRING!
