The Southland in Springtime


After the longest, coldest, snowiest winter that I ever recall, it is finally really spring! Although it has been official for several weeks now, it actually looks and feels like spring. The dogwoods are in bloom, the daffodils and tulips are in their prime, and the azaleas are just opening up. I woke to the sound of birds chirping outside my window, and a lawn mower buzzing in the distance. The grass is the greenest of greens -- that glorious new green that only appears in April. It is absolutely gorgeous out today. Love the Southland in Springtime!
