Spotted in Lake Oswego Oregon: Signs of Spring

spring camelliaSpring officially arrives on Wednesday, March 20 but unofficially there have been sightings in Lake Oswego.

■My camellias are blooming and the rhododendron buds are getting ready to put on a brilliant show.

■Neighbors are coming out of their hibernation.

■The sound of lawnmowers and smell of freshly mowed grass are giving yard work a good name.

■Tree blossoms are ending winter’s drought of color.Spring tree blossoms yellow

■Kids have been spotted playing in their backyards and out in the streets. The trampoline next door is springing back into action.

■Barbecue dinners are working their way back into our weekly menu (granted, I may still need to wear my coat and perhaps hold an umbrella while I’m standing at the grill).

■Daffodils are reminding us that some things are worth the wait.

■Kayakers are bundling up and coming down our canal, along with an occasional boat sighting.

■The sun is nearing a 7:30 p.m. sunset, giving me more daylight to read on my front porch, chat with my neighbors, and yes, mow that lawn.
