A Gift From Spring

We've had wonderful soft Spring rain off and on for the past two days. The temperatures have been a little cooler than what is normal for May. I wish this would become the new normal for all of California; cooler and wetter instead of hotter and drier. By the time I've gotten through 5 or 6 months of no rain I feel as though I'm just a hair's breadth away from insanity.

To me, it was an amazing gift to be able to go outside and breathe in great lungfuls of wet, cool air that intensifies the scent of the pines, cedars, lilacs and apple blossoms. It was also nice to come back into my cottage to a little fire crackling on the hearth and a hot cup of tea.

Oh, how I wish this weather would stay!


  1. The joy of rain! And that first picture is breath-taking!

  2. You have to move here if you want to breath in wet, cool, refreshing air a lot. lol. The flower pictures are beautiful.

  3. OC, it's either there where you are or the Pacific Northwest. I'm really attached to this place, but it's changing so much that sometimes I'm tempted to move...


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
