Spring in California

Change comes in red paint. We awoke this morning to the sound of trucks and drilling into concrete. City workers were putting in three-way stop signs at our "T" intersection.

Traffic at our blind three-way corner has always been bad. Will these stop signs help? I hope so. Will there be noticeable changes in the traffic pattern? Will cars slowing to a stop right in front of our house have an effect on the wild things that frequent the yard? I don't know. It will be interesting to watch.

Spring is definitely here. The ornamental plum tree has burst into bloom and the house finches are munching on the flowers even while the workers paint the curb scarlet.

There are two hummingbird nests in the yard. The Allen's hummingbird nest has two eggs, the other should have eggs soon. Pictures? I'll have to take a few. Happy Spring.
