I used to only like winter because of all the exciting weather that happens that time of year. Keep in mind that I’m in California, so our winters are mild enough to be enjoyable. Now that I’m getting older, I find myself enjoying the rest of the seasons more and more. I am thoroughly enjoying Spring this time instead of seeing it merely as a slow, painful transition to longer and warmer days. It is spectacular to see leaves sprouting and flowers blossoming all around.
Here are two flowers from my mom’s garden that she proudly wanted to show me. I’ll need to take pictures of her orchids in the coming weeks. She’s got a few flowering now and lots more on the way.
