A Touch Of Spring

Dream Warm especially if you happen to be somewhere that is cold and you have the shivers ~~ perhaps that should be spelled chivers ~~ but still I just wanted to send an image that might brighten an otherwise gray and gloomy day for you.

Living in the southwest desert of TX I do not get many gloomy days so for me it is almost always sunny and bright.

What this region does get a lot of is sunshine and cloudless skies. The vegetation here has to really work hard to get what little moisture there might be so instead of tall trees we have spreading bush, some actually spread over 10 feet wide.

I think that the yuccas in the mountain range here are probably the talled of them all, some will actually have blooms that tower up to 10 feet tall but that is so their seeds will be blown through out their region once they are ripe and the winds blow, and yeah, we do get some heavy duty winds.

Does your area get a lot of sunshine? Does it also rain a lot?

Here in Ireland, we get a lot of rain! It is chilly at the minute but not a lot of frost down here by the sea. Beautiful picture.

I live in western Washington state, so we get a lot of rain, much like MegL does in Ireland. We did have a bit of snow, accumulating about 2 inches where I am, last Thursday night, but it was most all gone in 18 hours with the rain.

I have seen a lot of rain in Dallas.

Oh it must be beautiful there, I live in the southwestern desert of the USA and boy is it dry and green is a dream even in spring.

I've heard that it is beautiful there but usually you can count the sunny days, a GI I knew said it reminded him of Germany.

Yeah, I'll bet. Dallas also gets a lot of humidity, thankfully that's not something I have to worry about, I just don't like muggy.
