Spring comes, even to the desert. And yesterday morning... I felt completely suffused with hope. And joy.

Orange blossoms, morning light just barely getting to them.

Leaves appearing on our pomegranate.


  1. Hurrah for Spring! I have always preferred the spring equinox to the winter solstice. We are seeing a lot of signs of spring here in the Pacific Northwest too, even with the renewed rain and wind. I love this time of year when the trees go pink and white and it looks like Dr. Seuss land!

    Plus - more outside time means babies are tired earlier, eat more, and sleep longer, and who doesn't love that?!

  2. Thanks for the shots of hope and joy!

  3. Beautiful photos! Our wedding was in spring, and part of the opening to the ceremony was talking about how spring is a time of hope, renewal and new beginnings. I love spring.

  4. I love visiting your blog because it makes me feel a teensy bit warmer, and your photos are beautiful! I love spring, too, and it feels springy here, although what that really means is lots more light, birds chirping, and somewhat warmer days...do you even remember what 35 degrees feels like after a long, cold winter?

  5. Those are such beautiful photos. I remember the first time I saw an orange tree and how excited I was. It's not a common thing to see where I'm from.

  6. Thanks everybody.

    Babies sleeping more = super awesome (though June isn't getting with the program!).

    Orange trees are new to me around here too. I just *love* the scent of them.

    And Tara, I remember all too well. When the thaw hits it is exhilarating.

  7. Hello, When I read your post about June being 15 months, I thought what a pity we don't live nearby, so they could know each other and grow up together. We'll have to compensate by sharing stories and photos!
    I love your pomegranate photos - wish we had a pomegranate tree, they are so yummy, and beautiful to look at (and photograph!). Lucky you.
    Thanks for visiting me.


I always, always, always love comments. (Okay, except maybe not the nasty ones.)
