Wintertime is also when my little pomegranate tree sets fruit and my neighbor's tree groans with the weight of Meyer lemons.
|Little pomegranates from my little pomegranate tree|
|This year's Meyer lemons...not as plentiful as last year, but just as large and juicy|
Wintertime is also time to maintain our weird, kooky fashion sense...sandals and socks.
|Highly practical, not so stylish|
And then it happens! Signs of spring suddenly appear in my back garden:
|Bulbine going crazy in back bed|
|Indian Hawthorn just starting to bloom|
|Jasmine just starting to bloom|
My little resident reptiles become active again, as they seek out places to sun themselves.

Spring is my favorite season!
