Spring is in my frontyard

I couldnt help capturing this gorgeous pink tree from my patio a couple days back. I think its a crab apple tree and I am loving the mess its making because its signalling the end of the nasty weather that has been pounding us. They say that the Californian water reserves are still depleted and the rain is still welcome.

I am reminded of my childhood days in India, especially the part where I grew up, it has always been dry and scorched and hungry for water throughout the year. Did you know whats the most valuable piece of property over there – water storage tanks and their most elaborate accessories!! In a certain summer, those items were the most stolen ones in my neighborhood. They were actually the means to acquire a more prized possession – WATER

    SOOOO freakin’ jealous. I miss California so much when I see you people out there basking in the sun light. Meanwhile, I’m over here on the other side of the country where I was out scraping ice offa my car this morning. No fun:(. Ca not wait for spring to burst onto the scene like this!
