rambling: is it spring already?

Don't be mad, but right now the weather in Southern California is gorgeous. It's Spring time already with highs this week in the mid 80's. I can't get enough of it. While, I do hope we get a lot more rain before summer hits, I am enjoying all the things this warm weather has to offer. And the main thing I am loving are all the gorgeous flowers that have decided to bloom early this year.

These are just some of the flowers blooming in my neighborhood right now. I didn't realize until I got home that I happened to take pictures of flowers that were all very similar colors. I mean, it is one of my favorite colors but next time I will try not to be so bias and share more variety. 

I am happy to be in a maxi skirt and tank top and drinking iced tea with the window open. I have lived in a place that has real seasons and while there is a lot that appeals to me about moving out of California, I am not sure if I could give up this weather. My plans for the weekend are to spend as much time outside as I can and enjoy the sunshine. 

Has Spring hit where you live?



  1. We've got cherry blossoms EVERYWHERE right now on Vancouver Island. And daffodils and crocuses too! Yay
