After complaining that spring seems slow to come this year, and a skiff of snow again this week I am seeing signs of spring starting to show up. One of the earliest spring flowers has arrived. Alpine Phlox is in bloom. I love this little flower because it is such a subtle flower. It is so small, so close to the ground. It looks almost like a juniper or some other evergreen. You can miss it if you don’t watch for it. It is a great reason to slow down and enjoy the moment and the place you are in. Best of all it doesn’t care that we are in a winter storm weather advisory and it looks like snow again today!
