Of course the AZ guy beat me to it. Here in California we've already hit Summer. This past weekend, well over 90 degrees and smoggy even along the beaches. We have had however, just about the most beautiful wild flower bloom (poppies, lupine, flax, phlox, yarrow, red maid, windmill pinks, fiddlenecks, phacelia, you name it... ). I'm just sad the hot weather is going to dry it all up. I have some nice photos I'll post later plus I am doing a wildflower hike tomorrow afternoon.

Also weird here in the southwest. We definitely have a fall and a winter but spring, fleeting and short, too short!!! Flower season starts in January and usually ends by April. Just in time for dry, hot heat, and everything turning brown.
