Spring in Boulder is one of my favorite times of the year. The arrival of spring is most notably marked by the Downtown Boulder Tulip Fairy and Elf Festival. Please note that mother nature wasn’t quite ready this year and that it has been moved to Sunday, May 1st 1pm – 5pm.
April showers have been amiss this year with the hopes that May showers will still arrive and make up for the lack of rain. The flowering pear and crabapple trees are blossoming with fruit trees and spring flowers not far behind.
Gardening is just around the corner so plan on visiting Growing Gardens for their cool weather plant sale taking place right now and plan to purchase your organic vegetable plants soon. Locals say that May 15th is the date to plant your garden to avoid most spring frost.
Here are some of the newest home listings in Boulder and the surrounding area.
