In the good, lovely days where I still owned a VCR and my mother hadn’t thrown away all my VHS tapes, I owned a video called Barney’s 1 2 3 4 Seasons, which was a forty-five minute long movie about Barney teaching little kids all about the seasons, and what they looked like. Unfortunately, Barney taught me to have high expectations for the weather. Silly me, thinking climate should be constant. In California, you can’t say “Bye bye, winter wardrobe, make way for my summer wardrobe!” You don’t have separate wardrobes—both, combined, are your year-round wardrobes.
Last year, it rained the most during the summer and August than it had during November and December. Last week, it was 70+ degrees all day, but this weekend has been pretty cloudy. And I keep seeing pictures from blogs in New York with their cherry blossom trees and their pretty flowers and, well, I still haven’t seen nice flowers around here, so I thought I’d share my findings in case you haven’t caused spring fever either.
All pictures linked to their Flickrs! Yay for credit!
This last picture’s from when I went to Legoland last year.
