I get pretty anxious for Spring around this time in February.
I think it is because of where I grew up.
Spring was just around the corner.
There might be a daffodil starting to shoot a touch of
green from the earth this time of year.
And when I get this hope for Spring,
I reflect on the beauty of where I grew up.
Pleasant Hill, California.
This pic would be after a rainy winter.
The hills were green in winter,
gold in summer.
Wild mustard bloomed late spring.
(these pics were taken by a
sweet little photographer in the Bay Area)
We had our beloved single mountain,
I don't remember snow on Mt. Diablo,
but I guess there was!
When we moved there, our house was one of the last on the road in a new tract of homes.
There were still blooming fruit orchards on the hills,
a perfect place to play and climb trees.
I get 'home sick' some times.
But I do love where I live now,
even though Spring flowers won't come up
for a few months.
David R. Stoecklein has taken so many
beautiful pictures of this area.
This is one of many.
Here in Idaho-land the sun is shining and it
will be a warm 34 degrees says the weatherman.
I am soooo excited that it will be that warm.
I hope you have a wonderful week,
Sending lots of love and positive
energy your way!
there is joy and happiness around
Love to you all!
