Love ItLove It

Mid March… What’s going on in your neck of the woods?

I cannot say I have enjoyed March of 2018 yet, but there is still time! I have had the flu for most of the month but am finally starting to feel better.

We have had a lot of rain and everything is so green! Here are some photos of what is going on in my neck of the woods. I live in Oceanside, North San Diego County, southern California.

This time of year our Live Oak Trees get new leaves and come in a bright red. Here are a few shots of these.

The second one is the very top of the tree.

These are also in show right now! The Mustard Flowers. Add vinegar and you have mustard condiment.

They fill the ground in places and grow wild.

And a close up of the flower.

The Lemon Trees have pretty white blooms.

The Birds of Paradise are very happy!

I love their color…

So bright and cheery..

The Monarch Butterflies are out! This one is on the tip of a Live Oak Tree.

Ahhh, spring is near..

With all this rain we’ve had it should be a very photogenic spring time.

These are full of blooms, but I don’t know what they are….

And I will leave you with this look up shot of the tree canopy.

What’s going on in your neck of the woods?

  1. Your photos cheer me up Kim because here in the Ottawa valley we still have a large amount of snow and it was -20 degrees C every morning for the past 3-4 days. We even had light snow every day last week. Spring seems to be very late in our corner of the world. Yours surely is in all blooms. Very pretty area you live in.

  2. Now that you are starting to smell in the spring. The photos are great. You say you need another week to recover completely. I wish it to be with sincere feelings.

  3. Wonderful photos, they are all amazing! Lovely colors in the photos! Here it is still cold and we’re supposed to get a little more snow I think.

    Glad to hear you’re starting to feel better….being sick that long is no fun!

    • Thank you MOM! This weather!! We are now getting more rain. This has been the rainiest season I can remember in a LONG time. Thank on the well wishes. : )

      • My pleasure!! That’s crazy that it’s been the rainiest season in a long time….must be our warmest cause it snowed quite a bit, but melted pretty fast too
