California Winters...

While much of the country is under a blanket of snow, it definitely feels like spring is on it's way here in Northern California. Having grown up in the Canadian prairies where spring can't be counted on until at least April, I have become quite spoiled after 30+ years in California. We often have comfortable temperatures well into November and by the last week of January or the beginning of February we are seeing signs of spring; that makes for a pretty short "winter".

These are some pictures I snapped in our yard last week.
 A clump of daffodils with the first flower almost open
 This geranium has been flowering all winter, I guess it's in a protected corner.
 Purple wallflower at the front of our house
 Fringe flowers just starting to bloom
 We have large areas of Rosemary which are all in blossom with their purple-blue flowers.

Well, I trust you are seeing some signs of winter's end, wherever you are!
