Spring is coming soon. I can feel it! The weather is freaking out with the cold and warm jet streams fighting over the sky. The spring rain storms are hitting the coast. And the flowers are coming out.
Driving down the interstate the wildflowers are in full bloom. Yellows and oranges and purples line the center median. So much so that you can smell them. Or maybe that’s just our brain over riding the cow pastures we are passing. Either way, I feel it in the air.
The almond trees are in full bloom. And boy…are their a lot of almond trees! We drove for over two hours with nothing out out window but almond trees.
The bees were out in full force too. That’s them in the hive boxes next to the trees. Pollinating away. Working hard. But what comes with bees alongside the highway?
Lots and lots of splatter on the windshield. If you look closely at the picture above with the power lines, you can see the beginning of the carnage. Yes, that is the beginning. It got much worse. Sometimes you wonder if the bees are throwing themselves on your windshield on purpose. I guess this really is survival of the fittest. And bees are on the bottom rung of that ladder apparently. And how about all those power lines. They went on for miles and miles too. When I snapped this picture they were crossing the highway. Only to continue on for more miles and miles on the other side of the highway. I guess since their really is nothing here in central California they had to put something useful here. It makes sense.
So, how do I know Spring is coming? Other than the wild flowers and the bee splatter on the windshield? The park that we are at, Bakersfield RV Resort, was actually cutting their lawn! Yup, the ever present lawn mower noise in the back ground this morning.
The two coaches on either side of us decided to have their rigs power washed. Feels like spring cleaning to me.
And I had the urge to make Raspberry Lemonade. Yum!
We may even cook out on the grill tonight. For those of you who are stuck inside due to the snow, sorry about that.
