California/Paris Le Fluers de Spring

To all of my "homie(s) blessed to live in sunny California. When

I envision Paris, which is often , I see flowers, flowers on cafe tables,

flowers in tre elegant' arrangements in upscale dining esblishments,

flowers

on night tables, flowere in pensions, bed and breakfast inns, flowers

in hotel lobbies, and atriums, and mostly the gorgeous flowers en

le foire. I just heard that the dismal, torrentials rains of this past

winter has left sunny California - the desert- ablaze, awashed, verdant

in beautiful fields, hills, mountains, valleys of flowers. Is it true, has

anyone seen this divine spectacle of opulence?

ciao,bella et bon chance.tmarie

Yes - the deserts are blooming. I drive out there last weekend to see the lovely poppy fields. It wasn't in full bloom yet, but I have seen pictures of other areas covered with beautiful flowers.

I am going to Paris and the Loire Valley this summer and can;t wait.

Yep. Up here in Bay Area land, the hills are a stunning green and the trees are in full blossom already. Beautiful to look at. But it comes at a price for those of us with allergies. It has been a rough spring already, especially a couple of weeks ago when July weather broke out immediately after two months of ark-building weather. Thank goodness for modern non-drowsy antihistamine pharmacueticals!

It's true. I have never seen the hills so emerald green and everything flowering. It's simply gorgeous on the central coast. And when we were driving from our home four hours to the San Francisco airport it was just as gorgeous the entire trip. Awesome. I am very lucky not to have allergies though.

The allergies are actually quite a small price to pay. For instance, this morning as I left my house in the hills south of Oakland, the air was so clear (thanks to all of the rain we have gotten) that I could almost make out individual windows in the Transamerica building. The sight of the bay ringed by green hills and sparkling in the early morning sun is one I never get tired of.

Of course, once I descended to freeway level, I spent 45 minutes in traffic on my way to work =(, but that's another story entirely.
