Sunday Pics - California

I love California. I may have grown up on the East Coast but my heart is in California. I only lived there for two years but I will be forever wanting to go back. Some of you have seen this before but it's still one of my favorite pics. I took it last November while visiting my sister in Oakland.



Enjoy your Sunday :)

  4. The flowering trees in California and Florida always seem so exotic to this Colorado girl.

  5. Things have definitely been in bloom around here lately -- but we're looking forward to our annual week in Maine this summer. Vacationland, right?

    1. Right, Vacationland. I sometimes forget that's what they call Maine. If only it was summer all year round *sigh* then it would be paradise.

  10. I would LOVE to see that coast of our country. I got as close to it as AZ. I should have made the track into CA and seen the Pacific. Maybe someday!

  11. I feel the same about California. We lived in the Bay Area for 4 years. My ideal place to live would be Monterey.

  12. Ooh! I agree with Karen. I love Monterey. Hey, M! How are you doing? Thanks for sharing. Considering I live in Cali, in a small town just south of Fresno, you know I had to stop and see the photo. Thanks for sharing. We actually did get a spring this year. Sometimes it seems that winter just ended when suddenly Blam! - heat. Thankfully we had several weeks of cool temps and lovely flowers.
    Have a good week.

  13. Hi, Marcy,

    That pic is GORGEOUS.... AND, so is your new header. I adore flowers... Central Florida is finally ablaze with flowers.... All the bougainvillea, azalea, and oleander are in bloom... SO pretty.

    I leave for Chicago on Sunday... Winter seems to be lingering there. I go back to 50's weather EEEEEEEEEEEK! As usual it will fluctuate twenty to thirty degrees daily. Such a STRANGE city ... weather wise,
