Is that snow?

It seems an odd question to ask in Southern California, even if it is February. I was visiting my local Borders bookstore the other day and, glancing out the windows, it looked like it was snowing.

The street outside is lined with flowering trees which I do not recognize. They bloom once a year with small white blossoms covering the entire tree. As teh wind rushes down between to buildings, these blossoms are stripped and float through the air just like big, fluffy snowflakes. They even collect in drifts on the ground.

Since I grew up in Ohio, it made me quite nostalgic for Winter-time back East, although I am sure that a few days of real Winter would soon send me scampering back to LA.

Up come the flowers...

After returning from a walk today, I was pleasantly surprised to see lots of little daffodil shoots poking up from the mulch.

I planted these bulbs back in November and I wasn't sure if they would have enough time to settle in before our early Southern California Spring arrived. It looks like things worjed out for the best, though.
