Flowers are the Earth Laughing
Without a doubt we have abbreviated seasons in Southern California. While the rest of the country is still literally buried in snow, our blossom trees are budding with whites and pinks and my bulbs are coming up in my yard!
Today I noticed that I have a daffodil that actually bloomed this year...other springs have only brought me sprouted leaves. I was never able to get the bulbs to bloom. I think the recent rains must have soaked the earth enough to convince the flowers to come. And now this week we actually have a very warm Santa Ana with coastal temps in the high 70's.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Flowers are the Earth Laughing".
Well said Ralph!
