My shadow...wild mustard and popcorn trees!

We're usually in Hawaii at this time of year, but this year we are here in Northern California and spring is bursting forth all around me!

The hills are so green that it almost hurts my eyes....the wild mustard meadows are an expanse of bright bright yellow and all around are beautiful trees with the most delicate buds and flowers in pinks and whites.

Our children and I always called them popcorn trees because.....well, they reminded us of popcorn popping open.

I am truly starting to have my doubts.

Gorgeous pics Marilyn, and scenes that we 'may' see in a couple months - at the moment I'm with Tristan in his comments!

Hugs,

I was in Los Gatos, CA a couple of weeks ago and had a chance to have a little bit of spring.
We still have snow on the ground here in the woods...soon we will see little signs of spring.
I was thinking of you and your lovely Hawaii home, when there was a fear of a Tsunami.
