It's springtime in Southern California! The blossoms are blooming like there's no tomorrow -- callas, birds of paradise, azaleas, plums, peaches, apricots, cherries, jacaranda, orange, lemon, honeysuckle, daisies, plumeria... At night, the air is heady with the perfumes of all fragrant things. West LA is like a Hawaiian bride, festooned with lei upon sweet-smelling lei.
And in Canyon Country, northeast of the San Fernando Valley, little orange poppies are already in bloom and hills are dusted with sunset smiles & saffron spilled by a careless curry chef. It's going to be a great year at the California Poppy Reserve
. After the rains of winter, nature sure does a men slam dance!
