@danon5,
ontario in the springtime means TRILLIUMS will be flowering !
they need a bit more rain though . they prefer shady places - usually when trees protect them from direct sunlight - there are often thousands and thousands in a very small area .
as soon as it gets really warm they'll be gone .

@ehBeth,
Wow. Those are really beautiful. Great pics too. Thanks.

The flowers down here are in a state of confusion. Some bloomed really early and some didn't bloom at all. Some trees are in full leaf now and some are still bare. It's all changing and one beautiful shrub that in the past had beautiful blooms didn't do anything this year. Looks like our planet needs fixing.

@Stradee,
ohmygosh! beautiful egret

spring is springing
achooooooo
the temperatures here are zooming up and down along with weather fronts that seem to be in a hurry to get somewhere
got drenched in about 30 seconds this morning, running from the car to the office - my passenger's umbrella went insideoutupsidedown about 5 times in those seconds - I was wrapped in a dog blanket I grabbed from the back of the car - surprise it's an unexpected deluge!

@ehBeth,
arn't they though? flight absolutely stunning!

well, no rain today - just freezing temps. brrr

the landscape is sooooooooo georgous though - a neighbor has two lovely dogwood trees with white blooms. The maples by the porch sprouting, lilacs blooming, even the pines are shaking away winter dust with new growth. beautiful colors everywhere!

omg! Good idea traveling with extra wrappings, especially during spring seasonal storms.

Glad you got home ok and safely!

@Stradee,
Thanks Stradee for the pics and stuff...... Great shots.

If Johnson were still in office (alive, of course) it would be pronounced, " Thu Merican River."

You can Google it - but, in a nut shell, when Johnson ran for office the very first time - he - at first, lost the election. Until a mysterious box full of votes for him was suddenly found in an abandoned bank in a very small town in S. Texas. He won. Geeeeee and Duhhhhhhh. No one has ever revealed how and where the mysterious box came from and how it was "lost" in an abandoned bank in a very small town in S. Texas.

That's politics in TX folks. Or, used to be. I think people down here are smartening up a bit. Or, maybe not. I don't know.

Johnson was quite the character - his farther and grandfather both were TX senators - not a surpise he'd manage to win at least one election from that state. Shocked

Yo dan, y'll live in TX! How bad can it be??? {grin}

More bout' the bridge...
All that the dam cohorts were able to build is the Foresthill Bridge, and with all the political haggling and fame, hollywood found a back drop {literally} with stunt people using the bridge for sailing cars over. It is the highest bridge in California, and also the third highest for the United States.

@ehBeth,
These guys bloom beautifully during the spring, and supply groundcover all year. They tolerate junipers and pine needles, the hearty plant appears delicate but does really well during hot weather also.

Meandering the Sierra landscape there are meadows of Ca's State Flower, and the California Golden Poppy grows near rocks and cliffs also. Quiet nice during Spring, the plant can be seen waving at motorists from interstates, highways, and meadow roads.

@Stradee,
Those are very pretty, Stradee. Thanks.

Down here most of our Spring flowering plants bloomed in the latter part of WINTER!! Shock. The rest, as I've said are confused to say the least.

@danon5,
Last year there were early bloomers, but this year, with rain and a good Tahoe snowpack, weathers normal for the Season.

I was concerned for the silver birch, {not a few from the neighborhood died} but now the trees doing well. Nitrate feeding seemed to have given the tree a boost also.

Texas had some severe weather changes, even during the Christmas season you mentioned temps were way above normal. How's the weather now, Dan?
