Spring is definitely here and I hope it will stay for good. I've heard it can snow even through June and I believe it. In one week we had a sunny day and I laid out in my bikini and the next few days, we had a blizzard!
Everywhere flowers and trees are in bloom. I haven't had a chance to take photos of the magnificent views and have only captured them with my eyes. I did snap a few shots of this California Western Scrub Jay (click the image for a larger view).
By the way, I had thought this bird was a Blue Jay, but it's a scrub jay and an entirely different species of birds. Check out some interesting facts about them by following the links beneath "References".
