If you are reading my blog regularly, you know that I took a seven hour road trip for the Easter holiday. I never tire to take pics of the different landscapes, skies, trees, hills and mountains.
The trip going up North into California was dry and sunny, even though the forecast for that whole week was rain. So, I enjoyed the purple fields with a little haze in the distance...
Not to forget green hill sides, because by May and for the rest of the year, they will be brown
We had so much rain this "winter" that the yellow weeds we mostly see around May, were already displayed gloriously, while some trees are still bare!
But our trip back the rain did not let up for SEVEN hours, going from North to South California. Very unusual in a desert climate we have here.
I do not want to end on that dreary note. By the Flying J gas station (cleaner bathrooms) I saw these "little violins" like we call them in Holland (African Violets...oops, no, pansies they're called here), defying the rain and the wind and blooming dapper.
