What makes you think of spring?
Spring means different things to different people I suppose. For those in the northern states, it may mean warmer days and more time for outdoors. Here in California it is always fairly warm. Even a cold day is not so bad that you cannot enjoy a brisk walk. But changing the time and allowing for longer days and the beginning of blooms in the surrounding hills... that is saying spring to me right now. There is a smell in the air – slightly sweet, a hint of grass and the mingling of dew with the bits of ocean current that make it this far inland (I am only about 20 min. drive from the coast). I need to take a great picture from our window. On a gorgeous clear day, we can see Catalina and the ocean being that we sit on a little hill.
But with spring comes the desire for all things fresh and alive. Nothing brings in the season better than all the luscious fruit that is coming into season. And who enjoys that more than the kids! Now there's a snack to put a smile on their faces! Time to start really hitting the farmers markets and bringing home the good stuff. I'll be sure to take pics and post after we go to the Strawberry Farm and pick our own soon.
