Multimedia: The Sights of Spring in Missoula


It's almost apple blossom time in Missoula

Missoula gets a little wet, and I get a little weary in the spring, wanting Mother Nature to “hurry up already!” and let the sun shine through.

But with the forecast looking rather bleak for the next several days, I have to lift my cup and look at it half full.

I need to remember just how beautiful our Garden City becomes in the springtime after the showers have cleared and the monochromatic tones of winter give way to brilliant, bright colors that lift my spirits!

Hang in there, Missoula. Spring brings good things, we just have to be patient!
