Fresh Spring Blooms in Southern California

Budding rose
Not ready for prime time rose...

Spring is in full swing here in Southern California…actually, the scary thing is that it has been here since late February.  I don’t like that one bit, but I do like the colors that have sprung up over the past few weeks. Definitely things I like to see and  they make me appreciate the time I take to walk outdoors even (and especially) after a long day at work.

Thought I would share some with you here, as it would allow me to do three things in one:

1) Take part in this past week’s Photo Challenge,

2) Be a BeWoW blogger as I see nature’s beauty as wonderful – and…

3) Encourage you to go outside and check to see if spring is making itself known in your neighborhood! (Apologies to those in the Midwest – I know you still have snow!)

I'm 42, a remarried mom of an 8 year old girl and a toddler son, a teacher, and a writer. People tell me I tend to be brutally honest and ...tell it like it is, so I had hoped to use this outlet to keep me sane while I got used to my new life as a stay-at-home Mom back when I was home with my worked. And it's been therapeutic through the end of a marriage and the emergence of me...


  1. I have been anticipating spring for so long, I can see glimpses now and then but it is gradually starting here. Really nice collection of photos really does make me wish spring would get a move on here.

  2. It’s so nice to see those beautiful flowers. Our snow is almost gone but there is more in the forecast in the next week. (I’m not sure it’s ever going to end!)

      1. You are so right! I’m just waiting for this snow to be ALL gone! I want to open my windows and hear the birds chirping!

    1. Thank you! I took another walk tonight and took a lot more pics- I think I’ll have to make another post out of them! Will have to go and read yours from today 🙂

  3. Beautiful! We are blooming here on the Gulf Coast as well. Our azaleas have just come in, but they are already beginning to disappear. It always makes me sad when the blooms begin to wither and die. Same with the wisteria. So beautiful but so brief!

    1. Yes! Many of the beauties that bloomed are already gone after a few weeks, especially since we had a nasty heat wave…thanks for stopping by 🙂
