This Sunday daylight savings begins. I cannot wait! It makes evenings seem so much longer. Now when I go for my evening walk, I won’t feel like my whole night is over and I can ditch the hat with the head lamps. Yes, I look like a dork…but there are crazy drivers out there, and I do wear black. So the head lamps (both front and back) help to make me visible to others. Plus I then don’t have to carry a flashlight or use my phone flashlight app.
Northern California was hit with some very heavy rains this year and now that they have subsided a bit, I’m happy to see all the flowers and trees blooming in my neighborhood.
I especially love the flowering trees. They are just so vibrant against the evening sky. Then I look down and there are all the daffodils and tulips popping up. They just look like they are ready to party.
Can I tell you a secret? I like camellias better than roses. Don’t get me wrong, I like roses, but there is something about a camellia that just draws me in. In the house I grew up in, we had a camellia tree (bush?), anyway, I loved the vibrant red color and the deep glossy green leaves. The contrast between to two colors really called to me and I like how the flowers are nestled in amongst the leaves. Unfortunately, I don’t have my own tree anymore, but I can appreciate those I see out and about on my walks. On a recent walk, I saw a butter yellow colored camellia that had big buds. Unfortunately, I forgot my phone, so I don’t have a photo to show. Hopefully, I’ll get a good picture to show on a later blog.
Until next week…
May your day be filled with beautiful flowers.
