I Love Spring

….when we have it. Many years the weather around here goes directly from winter to summer. Sometimes it happens over a two week period, other times it happens overnight. But….this year we have a full, real spring! Thanks to the El Nino, we have had lots of rain since late October which lasted almost through March, and which has turned our dry brown landscape into a lush green paradise with a liberal sprinkling of color from the flowers. One of my favorite spring blooms in our State flower, the California Poppy. At this time of year one can see entire fields and hillsides covered with it’s bright, happy orange flowers, frequently sharing space with the lovely purple lupines.
