Southern California Signs of Spring
It's Sunday morning. Time to crack out the shovels, lawn mowers and weed
whackers and get rid of those weeds that are popping up all over. Now that it is
spring, my yard is filling up with all kinds of things I haven't noticed for a
long, long time. Dandelions, bees, humming birds, and the fragrant smell of the
lemon tree blossoms are a few signs that it's time to do a survey and make sure
that I am on top of this stuff now before it gets out of hand.
Unlike other places, when spring arrives to Southern California beaches, the
changes are simply a matter of plants, grasses and trees growing faster than
they did during the winter. There's seldom a freeze, so the greens simply take
on new shapes.
I went around the yard and took a few photos. I especially love the color of
the grass and lawn, thanks to the rain we've had this year. I think there must
be an Easter Bunny somewhere. When I find one, I will take a photo and post it,
Happy Egg Hunting!
