Third week in April. It's supposed to be springtime now, right?
My driveway ~ can you see the pear & apple blossoms covered in snow?
It's been a long, cold, wet winter. I am tired of the rain and snow now.
Cherry Tree & Bay Tree ~ snow frosted
CA Redbud Tree ~ in full bloom ~ snow frosted
Note my lounge chair in the photo above. The one I enjoy sunning myself in when it's warm outside. Covered in a thin layer of snow this morning. No sunning myself today!
That's the edge of my main raised bed garden to the right of the photo. Full of snow. Good thing I have been too busy to plant it yet. Only the over wintered garlic grows in there today. I normally have all of my cool weather crops in by the first week in April. Between the weather and my schedule this year, I have done almost nothing to ready my gardens. The guys did help me to weed it. So that's something.
Manzanita Trees ~ pretty when laced with snow
I long for the softness, warmth and sweet scents of Spring. I want to see my gardens grow. I love the little seedlings pushing up from the soil. So brave. So strong. So determined. I love how they grow big and produce much.
Butterflies and flowers. I am so ready for them.
Colorful Roses ~ picked April 18th
The beautiful, sweet smelling roses in this last photo, were picked at my Mom's old house located a couple of hundred miles from here in a warmer sea-level climate. It was actually almost hot there last Sunday when I collected them. They remind me of her.
