Spring StormYou know what I love about Spring? Most of the time the skies are as beautiful as the flowers.

Bluebells?I planned on shooting Tulips ... again, but found what I thought were Bluebells instead. But when I looked them up, these didn't look like Bluebells. I'm pretty sure you can guess my question, any thoughts?
Whatever they are, I like 'em! Have I mentioned how much I love spring flowers?

Waiting for the TrainOn Saturday something new came to the Wasatch Front, something that the citizens in the towns (that are not in Salt Lake County) along the mountain range have been waiting YEARS for... MASS TRANSIT THAT HAS BECOME MORE EFFICIENT. I spent some time as part of the masses tonight and this is what I saw. Lots of families out to see Utah's new toy.
**I had to make some corrections to this text. The red text was added on May 1st following a very compelling argument that was made in the comments of this post. Thanks "Politically Correct Dorky Peeps!"**

Bonding TimeI come from a family with 7 children. I have 4 brothers and 2 sisters and I get along with all of them spectacularly. But there are two little "words" that bring us (well, all but one of us) together better than just about anything else... U2. Tonight my brother "debuted" his HDTV Surround Sound Entertainment System with the incomparable Rattle & Hum. It was pretty amazing.
And don't worry about my brother who doesn't like the greatest band in the world, we love him anyway. ;-)

Days Gone ByI remember being a little girl and going to this Drive-in Movie theatre. Of course I never made it through the movie, but it didn't matter we were all ready for bed before we went...my parents thought ahead.
Who knows how long the sign will last, now that it's a subdivision. *Sigh*

My parents live at the foot of this mountain, and from the beginning of this project my mother has been asking me to take this photograph. While I've taken several shots of it, none of them have turned out right. This one however, I like.
Interesting fact... The man who drew the original logo for Paramount Pictures was from Ogden (my home town) and local legend says he used this mountain as his inspiration. Who knows if it's true, but it's a fun story.

Popcorn Popping on the Apricot TreeI know there are plenty of you who do get it, but if you don't get the reference, it's a song from my childhood...and I guess my current-hood. Anyway, if there seems to be way too many Spring flower photos this week I apologize. I'm trying to get in as much Spring as I can before it snows again.

The ChaplainWe buried my Uncle today. He was a Marine in every sense of the word. There was a beautiful graveside service performed by the local veterans, and I was deeply touched.
You know, I may not support the war that is going on right now, but I support our troops. So, thanks Uncle Farrell. I'll miss you until we meet again.
