I find that my mind has already begun the shift from cool weather to warm weather activities. Even though the weather is mild here in Southern California, we still mark seasons just the same. If we are lucky enough to get a bit of rain in the winter, now is when our local mountains take on a beautiful soft green and the trees begin to leaf out.
Most of my roses are in full bloom and the cutting has started in earnest. I could easily cut a bouquet every couple of days right now but they are so pretty on the bush that I settle for a few fresh blooms a couple of times a week.
Thoughts of no school and heading out to the pool or beach have started to sneak into our conversations as well. I plan on doing a little porch and patio decorating this weekend because I know BBQ season is just a week or two a way. We are in need of some pretty new pillows for the front rockers and I want to find a colorful oil cloth fabric for the patio table.
What about you? Is summer on your mind or are you just holding on to the hope of spring?
