Spring?

After two solid days of rain, today the sky was clear and bright. We took a walk out Red Rock Canyon Park.



The creek was full but not overflowing, and everywhere was the sound of running water. Water poured off the sides of the huge rocks and trickled into the stream.


The wildflowers are not yet blooming - at least not many. I found this little yellow mushroom growing up in the grass. It's smaller than my little finger.

Lots of people were out, especially families with small children and dogs - the children in their rubber boots splashing in the puddles and wading in the creek.

Jack's not interested in the water - he prefers to keep his paws dry and clean. But he sure had a nice time.

Is it almost spring?

That reminds me, I should go to Griffith Park & see if the waterfall's been turned on. Thanks!

Ah, the sound of rushing water in a creek and children in puddle boots! Definitely signs of Spring! I confess to a twinge of envy.

I saw those same mushroom's on a friends lawn just yesterday. I don't believe I've seen that kind before. Maybe it's a new California shroom.
