Spring in St. Louis

  03/23/11 20:13, by jsignal, Categories: random ramble

Spring has arrived in Saint Louis. The daffodils appeared back in February, but are all in bloom now. And the flowering trees, one of which is seen here, are really taking off. I went out and took snapshots of this huge, magnificent magnolia tree (at least that's what I think it is). These flowers never stay around long on this tree. Once it gets windy for a few days, they're gone. Back in North Dakota we have a few flowering trees, but Missouri is loaded with them, which makes spring especially interesting.

As an aside, some construction has already begin here at Kenrick seminary. In May, everyone will evacuate the building for a year while a massive remodel is underway.

Enjoy the early spring trees while you can. This time next year, western North Dakota will likely be covered in snow. (It’s snowing lightly in Bismarck as I type.)

I’m jealous….I think it’ll be July before Spring hits here.
