So many places in the United States are still under snow or at least feeling the last little bit of winter. Not here in Southern California! We are in the middle of a really weird heart wave. (Earthquake anyone?) Last weekend I was really excited to get my spring flowers planted, and when I went to The Home Depot to get them, it was clear everyone else was feeling the same way. The place was packed with people buying lawn food and grass seed. Flowers were selling like hot cakes! (Remind me to look up where that expression came from.)
I love spring so much, but this year it seems we are being ripped off by getting summer and skipping spring. Our temperatures are hitting 80 and 90 degrees fahrenheit. At 4:30 this morning it was already or still, 80 degrees in the house. Yuck. I was so happy to be out working in the yard by 7:30 this morning. It was cooler outside than in the house. In fact, it was lovely. At least at that time of morning I could really pretend it’s spring. I was enjoying some planting and seeing all the flowers blooming. Many are being killed by the heat but enough is going on to be really pretty. Anyway, all that being said, Saint Patrick’s Day and Easter are here and personally, I love it! In fact, I wanted to share some spring love with you, so scroll down and feel the shady sweetness of the spring morning! Enjoy!
I hope you feel ready for spring, and your Monday is going great! Have a wonderful week.
