The calendar says it's May, but it feels like August here with the temperature hovering around 90º (32º C). And across the country, in Colorado, it's snowing! We have the Multiflora Roses and Blackberries blooming, and while there's no snow, the Black Locust blossoms have been falling like it and covering the ground beneath the trees like a Summer version of a snow blanket. Mama Gaia is very green and lush, with lots of floral highlights. Come walk through the Dykeman Spring Nature Park and see.
