I hope that winter is not over for California because it barely started. Our water situation is dire. However that doesn’t mean that I won’t admire the fabulous colors of an early spring. I took all of these photos within about 30 feet of my house. The acacia tree in the front yard. The almond tree near the driveway. Recent rain (two weeks ago now) and warm weather bring out “the air force”. In the pasture.Shepherd’s purse in the pasture. In a pot in the backyard. Western redbud near my shop.
