Signs of Spring in Southern Colorado

Signs of spring here in the Wet Mountains:

Spring beauty blooming along the county road.

Red-winged blackbirds starting to sing.

• A single-engine air tanker overhead, which as soon as I saw it, started my heart to beating a little more rapidly. But there was no column of smoke on the horizon, and after a couple of elliptical flights over the Wets, the pilot headed (apparently) for the Fremont County airport. Just a training flight, I guess.

The snow melts, and it's wildfire season. Yippee. :-(
