Is it a judas tree? Our mimosa is just about to explode 😀
You know… I don’t know! The ex planted that tree five years back but it produces large broad leaves?
I just looked up Judas tree… I think it is! You certainly know botany!
It’s spring in Westlake Village, so why not?
We hit 86 degrees the other day. But in the 40s at night. (Nah, there’s nothing to that Global ‘Warming’ stuff.)
I agree about the global warming stuff… I remember back around 1989 (?), California had an extended drought. We weren’t allowed to water our lawns and it dried up into a dry yellow fire hazard. 🙂
Yeah, we were living here then. I can’t remember if we had a lot of fires that year, probably.
Certainly not spring here. Sixteen inches of snow the last two nights.
The weather has been crazy. My friend in Pomona says her almond tree budded way before schedule and my gardenia had flowers 3 months earlier than it was supposed to.
Really?? That is early!! My cherry blossom tree also began blooming yesterday. Crazy indeed…while much of our nation is under deep snow… I hope you and your FAM are safe…
We’re fine; thanks for asking. Florida has only had a drop in temperature the past 2 days, that’s all. But, I do have to keep checking on friends scattered around the country. So far, so good – only one has lost power.
You are fortunate… and I will also think of you when the love bug season hits… literally! 🙂
Oh no, you HAD to remind me?!:)
Don’t send any of those photos to the folks in New England. They’ll kill you. 🙂 –Curt
I know… and my cherry blossom tree began to bloom yesterday as well. I assume you and Peggy are under frigid conditions as well… or perhaps gallivanting about?
Not gallivanting, Koji… just sitting in my favorite chair, looking up the mountain and watching the rain come down. Peggy is making noises about our walking the mile and a half round trip to our mailbox, but I am thinking driving. 🙂 –Curt
Here in Boston we are going crazy. Up to ten more inches of snow tonight ( or so we have been sold ). Wind, endless gray skies and dirty crusted snow. Oh, joy.
But you live in historic Boston! Our forefathers weathered the storm in wool and cotton! 🙂 Sorry to hear about the harsh winter… 😦
I know– it’s been crazy. Every time I turn on the weather it seems like another major storm is hitting the Northeast. I am ever so sympathetic and ever so glad I am living in Southern Oregon. –Curt
To be able to enjoy a mile and a half walk to your mailbox, sir, is a dream for many… including me. I hope you aren’t whining. 🙂
Nah… we love it. But still, I prefer the sun to the rain. 🙂
Well, my friend, A New England winter would be so much easier if I had a neighbor who created homemade truffles! Or…Strawberry and Frangipane Tarts or Raspberry Mascarpone dessert! But no…and life is one great big black and white movie around here. Buy,hey, Dunkin Donuts is open so I can always get a Dunkin’ Dark Roast ice coffee no matter the weather!
Seriously, ithough, ts gotten so bad I have a couple Key West, Florida live cams bookmarked just so I can see what warm weather is like. Its that bad.
It’s a redbud–common here and in the south. It’s an early spring bloomer after the forsythia but before the crab apples. Of course we still have a foot of snow outside and about 14 degrees F. It’s nice to see flowers. Two days ago, in Ontario, CA, I saw a tiger swallowtail butterfly. Something to look forward to.
Thanks for the ID! And I’m sorry to read about your weather situation… You were in Ontario? Was it a layover?
Yes, we get there regularly. Is that close to you?
Yes, just a tad over an hour away if no traffic!
You are blessed to live in a lovely place.
You bring us hope of spring!! 😀
And you ARE hope, Patty!
Patty, you represent everything “hope”…
You are going to make me cry! That was so sweet, thank you its been a long tiring day and as always you brighten my day!
