maybe it really is spring!

Never intending to be a doubting Thomas, 
I often am when the old apricot tree blooms just before a winter storm warning is in the forecast!

Ah, but I was wrong!  And while there was snow above 8,000 feet,
we experienced a soft rain for about 18 hours which was magnificent!

With daytime temps in the low 60's,
the red leaf peach has decided to join the apricot and fill my day with delight! 

I really have no idea what the little tree below is.
(It's a sucker I thought might be a chokecherry, but it's not.)
 It is in the most awkward place, receiving minimal sun ...
but it is so sweet and loves to bloom filling my heart with joy!
