I snapped this picture while driving on State Street, technically in Eagle, I think. The lines between Boise, Meridian and Eagle are a bit blurred for most of us because they seem to run into each other. I'm enjoying these mountain views every day, because soon - the view won't contain so much contrast. When the snow melts, the mountains and hills may show a bit of green, but they go to brown quickly. We're going to see our temperatures here in the valley get close to 80 this weekend, but our warm weather is not here to stay yet, although people may be tempted and starting putting young tender plants outside. Our average last frost date is May 9. And there are some around here who say never plant outside until all the snow melts off Schaeffer Butte - which is the highest peak we see from the valley.
