Blossom Bonanza

Just getting started
The temperature was very pleasant this morning for Dr. K, Willow, Frio and me as we did our morning hike.  Due to clouds and sun the lighting was excellent for photos.  I took 90.

We followed our usual route with a few detours, the latter so I could take pics of a Desert Willow in the Tellbrook Arroyo.

All involved in the daily trek enjoyed the natural beauty and the exercise we got while scoping things out.
