The Friday Five

1) Has the weather where you are finally started acting like spring is here?
It's 1pm and 69 outside, although it rained a couple of nights ago so, spring-like, I'd say

2) Do you have any special spring activities or outings planned?
No we do not

3) Have you started wearing different clothing appropriate to spring?
No I have not.

4) What signs of spring are manifesting around you?
Where I live, only the amount of rain indicates a change of season, some in winter and spring, very very little in summer and autumn with no snow ever. Now and then, it gets foggy. Once in a while, it's windy. Flowers bloom and birds sing year-round, if only more so during spring, and many trees are evergreen, palms, Monterey junipers, furs so, only a few display flowers or spring green. For some reason, to me, autumn stands out more especially with the trees.

5) Are there special foods you enjoy preparing and/or eating in the spring?
Farmers from the valley bring local produce to our stores and farmer's markets year-round so, the only thing I can really only get in spring are those little tangerines that peel so easily. I could get them year-round but not organic so, limited to spring. Soups get lighter. No more stews. That's about it :)
