One Weekend Two Shots (Jan 15-16)

Okay, now some of  you have just been having yucky snowy cold weather, and while here in so cali we don't get below zero we do have days of low 50's and nights as low as 30.  I mean right before Christmas we had such a cold snap and so much rain I thought we'd need an arc!!  Well that has passed, and every so often we'll get several freakish days of 80 degree weather smack dab in the middle of winter.  It doesn't last and it doesn't happen every single month, but this past week has been just glorious and my pics reflect that.

These bush/trees, yeah, to big to be a shrub but not quite a tree, have buds and blossoms aaaaall over them.  I have white ones, reddish pink and this pretty baby pink.

These are my kumquats, kinda like a tart little orange, you roll em between your fingers and eat them skin and all.  Ya know, these suckers go for 4 bucks a pound in the grocery store and I gotta have at least 60 pounds  on my tree!!


  1. As I sit here reading your post, I have a lovely view of snow falling outside my window. You are making me yearn for the Springtime in a big way. Beautiful flowers! and those little kumquats look yummy!

  2. Love the shots Paula! The flower is so pretty!! and to have it in January...ahhhh, you know I'm jealous!

  3. First, I love the new blog facelift. Very pretty, indeed. That blossom is just too beautiful. Isn't it amazing what nature can create even in winter? You know, I've never had a kumquat. Lucky you having them right in your backyard.

  4. oh the lemons, the flowers,how beautiful
