In the desert things can change overnight. No joke. I went to get the mail yesterday and have to walk by this bush. You could barely see tiny green shoots on it. One day later, here it is:
I think this is absolutely amazing! The leaves have grown almost an inch overnight. I noticed the Bradford Pear tree on the corner is in full bloom also. I hadn’t noticed any buds on it yet. It usually pops into flower on the spring equinox. You can set your calendar by it. We are in for an early spring, which is fine by me.
I took this photo of the honeysuckle vine in the backyard today. It gets totally brown and looks like dead sticks in the winter. Then in two weeks time it’ll have blooms on it. You can see the green taking it over already.
I really think you could sit and watch things grow this time of year. I love it. I know the cats do too. We opened the windows today for the first time this season while we cleaned up the patio.
My patio - all I need now is flowers
More pictures to come as more things start happening around here. Happy early spring to those of you who have it happening at your place and I hope it isn’t too far away for everyone else.
