Spring Returns – Day Three

Spring has arrived, at least for a couple of days. After one of the rainiest and coldest winters recorded in Los Angeles, followed by extremely windy conditions for a few days, we actually got a couple of relatively calm days this past weekend where it got up about 80°F. (More rain & chilly temps are coming tonight, and this weekend, and next week, and next weekend…) While it was nice I wandered out and noticed that the yard was responding to the warm up by coming to life, so I grabbed a camera.

Closer to the house, the apple tree is leading the fruit trees in getting out the flowers.

The netting keeps out the birds and squirrels from eating the fruit, but allows the bees in.

The flowers are springing out left and right.

All of that pollen! (All of the sneezing!)

It’s the season of tree sex, and our sinuses pay the price!

The views are worth it though.
