A little rain and sun and the bulbs announce that spring is almost here. I ran out to get this photograph before the following rain storm beat them down; they fared pretty well and are still gorgeous. These bloom in a sunny patch of our front yard here in the Sacramento area.
Then yesterday mid-morning I went outside to put mail in the box, and caught these two ladies strolling down the street past my house, bold as brass. We often see flocks of turkeys at the nearby parks and along the Sacramento and American River waterways, but this is the first time I have seen them in our neighborhood. There are also peacocks that roam the neighborhoods some times. Some day I'll tell you the story of the pea hen that took up residence in our back yard in our old neighborhood for a short while. Talk about your suburban excitement!
Can you tell I have spring fever?
The blood orange tree is going nutsy too, but I need to give it more attention, poor baby. I love you, blood orange, really I do!
