Nothing is so beautiful as spring
the glassy pear tree leaves and blooms, they brush
the descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
with richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling
- Gerard Manley Hopkins
Obviously, Mr. Hopkins didn't live in the Valley of the Sun!
Spring is a small fleeting thing here.....and starts with blossoms in January. Waiting until February to snap a few photos greatly reduced the number of blossoms I could find. The green leaves were fighting with the blossoms for space. Enjoy this for a brief moment....much like our Spring.
Asparagus Quiche, so delicious!
I looked out the window...
And what did I see?
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree!
December brings ripe citrus
We plant our winter grass at the beginning of October.
By March, it's on it's way out.
