Spring is Here!

It's so uplifting to see everything in bloom and the  butterflies everywhere.  This little butterfly is a Painted Lady. They always show up about this time of year.  I took this photo at Descanso Gardens which is not to far from my home.
Descanso has a beautiful Lilac forest. These photos were taken last year.  I'm looking forward to seeing this years  blooms!


  1. Hello ! lovely photos...we will have to wait quite a while longer till the osteospurnums flower and the lilacs will bloom here in May. We have a few butterflies and bees out at the moment in the spring sunshine though so that's nice...spring is earlier here this year...I'm not complaining !! Gail x
