Spring Arrives with Cherry Blossoms & Empty Reservoirs

The sight of my cherry tree blooming brings me joy unsurpassed by any other fresh fruit. We grow blueberries on two tiny bushes, apples on two growing Gala trees. The olive trees sport new growth and its verdant green brightens the entire area of the yard.

Without snow to cover the grass, we experience year round temperatures that most people yearn for and seldom see. The mid-sixties to low seventies surrounding us this spring rarely show before late summer and early fall. The change in the climate proclaims itself violently with nearly dry reservoirs and water rationing in our future. We had an entirely dry January for the first time since record-keeping began; doesn't this tell us anything ?~!
