the scent of spring is in the air





As soon as I see the cherry blossoms appear I know that spring is just around the corner. They decorate the sidewalks with their lacy veils of pink and white. The delicate, feminine blossoms wave gracefully in the air, reminding me that warm sunny days will no longer be few and far between. They bring colour into the world; soft, pretty colours that are shamelessly happy. They dance gaily in celebration of life, inviting the world to dance with them. They flavour the mornings, the scent of lazy ice-cream days wafting through the air. And they bring a smile to my face every sugary sweet morning, as I drive down the cherry blossom lined streets, joining them in their salutation to spring.

yaaaaaaaaaaaaay spring! i didn't wear tights today, though i think that might have been a bit premature as once i got to work the clouds came over and it got cold.

oh well.

spring is definitely one of my favourite seasons as is autumn, i think because both seasons bring relief from either really hot or really cold weather :)

Cherry blossom season is one of my favorites. Oh how I wish it were Spring in San Francisco. I am bracing for the chilly weather and extra layers.
