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.

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.

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.
