Spring happens a little differently in San Diego. The early signs of spring come very early, usually by the end of February, and by the time the end of May is here, everything turns yellow and brown from the hot sun rays. As a sign of renewal and rebirth, spring is my favorite season. Here are a few photos of what spring in San Diego looks like to me. Remember you can click on each photo to see a larger image.
I was lucky to be picked as an honorable mention winner for my photo of California poppies for this challenge.
Blue skies and colorful flowers are common in the spring.
I love the many California poppies we see all over.
Ramona lilac is a local plant and it features beautiful, but unscented, clusters of small lilac blooms.
California wildflowers grow just about anywhere they can find some water.
This lupine bloom was standing on its own in a local park. I love the color purple that comes with spring.
These pear blossoms start early at San Diego’s Balboa Park, usually by early February. You can view more photos of these ornamental pear blossoms here.
I took this photo of dew just last week. Dew usually happens before spring starts here. After that, our mornings are too warm. You can view more photos of dew here.
I featured these flowers in yesterday’s Macro Monday post. Tiny flowers are a great indication of early spring in San Diego.
