I'm Ready for Spring...

McCall, Idaho... photos taken a couple of weeks ago when I had my Friday off adventure. I first visited McCall when I was just 16 years old. I decided then, I wanted to live there some day. Boise is just two hours south of McCall, along a very scenic highway. Being from California, ending up in Boise is perfect, just a hop, skip and a jump away from McCall. Below is the south end of Payette Lake, in McCall, where it flows into the Payette River.


Back in Boise... We are in a bit of a drought this winter. We have had little, if any, snow this year. I think we even broke a record of the lowest rainfall ever recorded for a January. We have had our share of deary, foggy days though, and I'm ready for Spring!

This past Saturday, I went with my guy to unload a 53' trailer full of new trees and shrubs at a wholesale nursery. Everyone's starting to get excited about the coming of Spring. It was fun and interesting to watch these guys zip around in these little tractor like things, flipping around like a carnival ride!

I'm ready for spring too. In fact, most of my bulbs have poked their long necks out of the ground...the daffy's and tulips are out. Hope we don't get a nasty freeze before it warms up. Love your photo's as always. ~Dona
