March can be unpredictable here in the desert southwest. Mornings and evenings are cool, days are mild. By midday, I am changing clothes from sweatpants to shorts, and then by sundown, back to sweatpants. Evenings are perfect for a dip in the hot tub, and for my crazy Viking husband, a cold plunge into the pool. All too soon, we’ll be missing these perfect spring moments. The heat will roar across the desert, sending sizzling waves into the trembling air.
wet winter, spring blooms
tiny dandelion spikes
push through the damp earth
