Spring has sprung. Since my arrival here on Saturday the weather has changed, growing considerably warmer. In just these few days there’s been a noticeable difference in the trees. What were then small buds, now are leaves.
I passed the Botanic Garden this morning on my way around the wall and was thrilled to see these flowering trees. We don’t have these varieties at home. In fact, a southern California spring is nothing like the spring that arrives after a hard winter. I’m savoring every moment.
And finally these chestnut trees (I think) which have already formed a lovely green canopy over the walkway.
I may have missed my all time favorite-lilac-but I am in time for the runner up-wisteria.
