When spring broke in the midwest we'd take every opportunity to get outside and enjoy the blue sky and sunshine. Each friday I'd take my news management team to lunch and in the good weather we'd opt for a place that featured outdoor dining. I can recall a couple of early spring days, emerging from the back of our studio onto the parking lot and being struck by the beauty of day. "This is what every day is like in California" I'd say.
Now that we've been here four years, I recall how fleeting those nice days were back then and how this is the "land of continual springtime." Seems as though there is always something in bloom. Here's a look at some early April beauty.
BTW-the "geode" stone is a transplant from southern Indiana.
It will probably confuse a geologist someday. Might even lead to a
new theory eh?
THE ECHIUM UPDATE
The echium bushes were "buzzing" as I shot these images. They are bee magnets and continue to grow.
Look at the variance in color between these above and the bush below.
See you down the trail.
