|The temple dedication will take place on the first day of spring.
|The temple will be the 150th operating temple.
The Provo Temple was the Church's 15th operating temple
It looks like someone from the temple department likes numbers.
|Over 800,000 visitors toured the new temple.
|There were actually people assigned to count heads as visitors entered the temple.
|If you like numbers, here's one I found amazing: Over 25,000 volunteers helped with the open house.
|I had to wait a few days until more volunteers removed all the tents.
|This hyacinth enjoyed the warm air in his tent.
|So did a few daffodils.
|I continue to look for evidence of the approaching spring.
|Buds on these cherry trees are almost ready to burst.
|These buds across Center Street are about to explode.
|It won't be long until new leaves are open on the trees.
|The pansies enjoyed the warmth of the morning sun.
|Somehow these blossoms from last year survived the winter.
|The south entrance has been blocked with tents for months, even before the construction fence went down.
|I was very happy to see this transom window this morning without using the extreme range of my zoom lens.
|The grounds were busy with workers again. The red zamboni was cleaning the sidewalks.
|Painters touched up the fences.
|Meanwhile, workers underground are dismantling the theaters and removing the displays.
|On March 20th, the temple will be dedicated.
|Regular church meetings in Utah will be replaced by the dedication.
|The anticipation is delicious.
