It's Bloomin' Spring Ya'll! 💐 Thu, Mar 26, 2020
As Californians, though we are still confined to our residences by the Governor’s executive order and everything is still closed (thank you COVID-19 pandemic), we can still go outside! One of my favorite things about spring (as some of my fellow team members already mentioned) is all the FLOWERS EVERYWHERE! 🌸 I love it when the wind blows through the Callery Pear trees and all the petals of their white blossoms float downward; I feel like it’s “snowing.” The petals gather in piles on the street and then swirl on the ground when cars drive through them. It's pretty magical if you've never noticed.
All the pictures in this post were taken locally around El Dorado Hills and Folsom during springtime in years past. See if you can find where they grow! I’ll give ‘ya a freebie and my personal favorite: these fields of purple bluebonnets are by Folsom Lake. Also I’ve seen bunches of orange California poppies everywhere — even just driving down Highway 50 the other day.
Even though our lives have been temporarily disrupted… there’s now plenty of time to stop and smell the flowers. And yes I managed to snag the perfect frame of Brig below so he appears to be frolicking in the field of bluebonnets 🤣
