Blooms in Bloom

In Northern Nevada, where I (mom) and one of the chicks live, you never know what the weather will bring this time of year.  Today the temperature is in the high 60's and sunny.  Just this past Tuesday, we had snow and rain, both of which we needed.  The drought is real out West, folks!  So far we have not had any water restrictions in our community but we all need to be conservative in our water usage.
Now, for the point of today's post:
My ice plant is blooming!  Quite well, I might add.  Since our winter was very mild my outdoor plants didn't seem to suffer any ill effects.  Of course, I have had tulips and daffodils blooming for the past month and they are beautiful as well.  Seeing how gorgeous and brilliant the colors on the ice plant are was a definite mood-booster for me.
Now, time to put the dogs on a leash, my sneakers on my feet, and enjoy the sun!
