Early Bird’s 6th birthday was at the end of January. We had an impromto photoshoot 15 minutes before school but I usually like to do an official photoshoot commemorating the passing of another year, like at 5 and at 4 and at 3, but we had to wait a little longer. I’m glad we did. The early spring flowers are blooming now. If you’re from California then you know our green season only lasts about two months at the most, in February and March. We usually get rain in the winter so everything comes alive after that for a brief time and it’s so beautiful… even if it’s fleeting!
We ended up doing a documentary video of the occasion so look for that in the next couple of weeks. I couldn’t help but take a couple of still images while we were out amongst the beautiful flowers in an abandoned orchard.
