Not to rub it in to those of you in blizzard territory, but the past week has been gorgeous in Southern California. Thanks to all of the rain we've gotten this year we have a wildflower superbloom which is attracting swarms of butterflies. Many people have commented they are slowing down driving around town so they don't take out any of the butterflies, ha ha!
To those of you buried in 3 feet of snow, we have some lovely Spring freatures to remind you Spring will becoming your way soon. And Spring means Easter. I have some handy tips for making Easter a little healthier.
Click your heels together three times and repeat after me: Spring is almost here, Spring is almost here, Spring is almost here.
I know it is hard to believe if you were stuck at home this week in the latest blizzard, but the calendar says it is almost Spring. And that rodent in Pennsylvania said Spring was coming early this year.
