Spring sprang

So, that's it. Spring has sprung and sprang from the valley. It started with my daffodils blooming, exploded our rose bushes, opened the gardenia vine outside our bedroom, and ended with our lily pictured above. I am so sad it's over. We're hitting 90's and the forecast has indicated it's not dropping below the 80s again (well, at least until October, probably.) We've actually had a good run at spring this year. I mean to make it to May before it really starts cooking is not a guarantee a la Vegas. One day I imagine living in a place where I can tend to a beautiful garden that will have blooms that last throughout the summer too. I do like the swimming and sun and . . . well the swimming because who can do much else when it's over 100. Not looking forward to the hot car and running errands with the kids and the heat, but then we can go swimming, right. After Memorial Day will be hitting the water parks regularly. BUT, it won't be pretty with blooming flowers as everything dies in the heat. I want pretty summer at the pool. Is that asking too much?

yeah, I don't know if you noticed the DEAD pot of flowers on my door step. I tried to have flowers but they died after about a week. Vegas is just too hot for anything to grow! How do people survive in this place!!??

We just don't have any flowers here. No opportunity to get disappointed. No pretty, and no pool at our house. Just ugly and hot.

I'll take hot and windy over having my house half flooding in water OR on fire like in Florida-I'm good. It could be WAY worse.
