I see spring has finally decided to stay around for a few...
I went out and looked at our Ponderosa Pine, and they are putting on little... things. I have heard them called fingers, candles, pods, lots of names. It's basically the pollen part of the tree. I think. The red things are, at any rate. The yellow colored spike is new "leaves". For whatever reason, I think of Hula Dancers.
I was taking some pictures of the new growth, when this little gent happened by. I was surprised, the dragonfly stayed still long enough to take a photo of. (It's kind of hard to see him, he's on the smaller spike in front. You can enlarge the photo by clicking on it, as I remember.)
So, I think, maybe, possibly, by some outrageous bit of hope, we might have springy-summery weather happening! (Except that my poor Husband has rat eyes right now, and I sound like a coffee peculator, but we still like the weather, if not the pollen...)
