The flowers are starting to come out here in Chico. Before the battery in my camera ran out I took these pictures this morning. It was just beautiful outside today, in the high 60s (F). It was warm and sunshiny. You couldn't ask for a nicer day.
We've had a warm winter (global warming?), so some things that would normally come up later are starting now. For example, the almond orchards are beginning a week to 10 days early. Daffodils, Camellias, Quince, and Forsythia are just a few of the flowers we saw in a few blocks.
We walked on Bidwell Ave, which runs along Chico Creek. There are some very big, expensive homes there, as well as older cottages. It was all beautiful. What could not be beautiful on a nice day in the Spring? And don't tell me it's not Spring yet.
