Welcome, Spring by Janice Seagraves

From Christina: Today is a day I’ve long awaited. Spring is here! Spring is always a lovely time of year, and it’s perhaps at its loveliest in the central valley of California. Author Janice Seagraves is fortunate to be near the beauty…and we’re fortunate that she’s here to share it with us.  Here are a few thoughts and many photos from Janice. Thank you for sharing!

Welcome, Spring

I live in the middle of the Central Valley of California. The bread basket of the world. The best part is all the fresh produce, and the blooms. I bought a new camera during cyber-Sunday, so I’d be ready for the almond blooms. You see, my home is in the middle of an almond orchard. The blooms are truly spectacular. Each year they are more beautiful than the last. And I was ready.

Bees pollinate the almond blooms, so we have almonds and honey.

My favorite part of spring is the beautiful open faces of the blooms.

Happy spring, everyone.
