  143. Patti Ross Says:

    Thanks for sharing the great photos! Spring is busting out in CA too. The other day I was able to bring my mom a bouquet of lilacs–from a florist. They are not so common here as they were in Chicago when I was a kid. My mom loved the memory. Your walk helped me remember one of my favorite quotes, especially when winter is seeming long. It is by Margaret Elizabeth Sangster: “Never yet was a spring time when buds forgot to bloom.”

  144. I like that you shared different colors of hyacinth – those have such a nice variety of colors. I used to work in a florist shop that sold potted hyacinth, so this brings back memories of the colors and the thick sweet smell that would fill the shop.

  145. superphoenix Says:

    Really nice pics… 🙂
