Signs of Spring in Southern California

A day before the Groundhog tells the world about the coming of Spring, February first in Southern California shows blossoms everywhere.

It appears that our recent El Nino storms nourished the flowers and helped the insect population.
We hope that, when the insects take over the world, they will remember with gratitude how we took them along on all our picnics.  ~Bill Vaughan

This flowering tree was filled with blooms, and quite a swarm of happy bees, which are not picture here.

There will be more Southern California floral photos here. This tree was spectacular, and covered in pink blossoms.
"Oh it's a magical thing, when the sun is shining down on me. And this is such a beautiful place, don't wanna miss a minute of today, it's so magical" ~ Martina McBride

Enjoy an early taste of Spring fever if you live in Southern California. I think were in for a showy floral season with the help of all of this rain.

GARDENING TIP: Now is a good time to use the weed and feed sold at your local nursery. It'll boost your grass and fight back the weeds and crab grass that could take hold if you don't catch it now.

I lived in Southern California for 17 years and I can say for sure: I miss it sooooo much, especially this time of the year. We are just starting to see 60degree days here in Northern Ohio after months of freezing weather. Thanks for the lovely photos! Keep 'em coming!
