I knew as soon as I planted my flower seeds and color bowls winter would return. I guess I have lived in the frigid northern hinterlands long enough to not trust those first warm, apparent spring days. They are just to taunt you before the next snowfall arrives. I try and watch my wisteria. It seems to have a sense of when spring really arrives and waits until then to start putting out its leaves. I saw the leaves budding. Even the clematis was starting to put forth flower buds so I decided that we have passed the last snowfall and I could safely embark on my spring gardening. Only a day after I planted my color bowls and put the seeds in the ground I get word that another winter storm is approaching. I did get my large color bowls in the house and covered the smaller ones on the patio so I think they will be good. I just hope the wisteria didn't freeze. It has gotten so large I would have to lose it at this point. Well, here are the pictures of what I saw when I left for work this morning.
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
