It is spring in the Texas Hill Country as evidenced by this Pink Thistle. If you have not visited Texas in April you are missing some of the most colorful scenery in the southern states. This area has the most beautiful wildflowers, including Bluebonnets, Indian paintbrush, Firewheel, Indian blanket, winecup, Prickly poppy, Mexican hat and Primrose to name a few. There really is a multitude of colors in every field.
It is March, which is supposed to mean spring in New England. There is still a lot of snow on the ground and wreaths still adorn the barns from Christmas. The trees are starting to run, however, which is the sign that maple syrup and spring is just around the corner.
This was taken at Mt. Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. I had never heard of Kite Skiing, however, it is a new trend and they were giving lessons. It was a cold, however, beautiful day.
