We have noticed that the days are getting longer. We spotted the plum tree beginning to bloom. It is always a lovely sight to behold. In town the coral trees with their reddish/orange blooms are flanked by dogwoods trees in full bloom.
In the wine country, we are spotting clumps of California poppies along the roads, and in the vineyards workers are busy pruning the canes of the vines. Soon, they too will start budding.
"And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest."
~ Percy Bysshe Shelley
Wishing eveyone an abundance of Saturday Smiles!
