It's Officially


A Camellia in Mums Garden

The Last month of winter always seems to be the hardest. Not that things change instantly because all of a sudden the date says it's officially Spring, but the mind set does.
The evenings have already started getting lighter & the days seem somehow brighter, but that doesn't mean that we wont get a cold spell, or a late frost.

The difference is that they are bearable!

The fragrance of Spring has been noticeable for over a week now, with blossom trees in bloom all around the city & the grass starting with it's fresh new growth. The park has been mown & when the days get warmer still, that has to be the one scent that makes living here worth it. To walk down the drive & smell freshly mown grass on a warm bright day. Yum!

This one is called "Debbie" - a misnomer as it isn't Orange,
but Mum always has it in her garden.

Hooray for spring for you guys! I happen to love fall even more than spring, so I say it's a good time of year all around the globe :) The pics of the flowers are lovely, such intense color. Tell Ms. Gabriela that her perch at the beach only needed a blankie, pillow, and book :)
