I love spring! In Southern California, spring comes at odd intervals. I had narcissus blooming in January. My iris, tulips, and lilacs are budded right now. The wisteria is in full bloom and has been blooming for weeks. I remember living in cold climates and seeing the first crocus bursting through the snow, signaling the coming of spring. I once visited Shiloh, Tennessee and saw daffodils blooming in February. I remember thinking how beautiful they were and wishing my own were in bloom back in Missouri. Here is S. Cal. we don't have a distinct difference between seasons but it's clearly spring when all of my flowers are bursting with color.
