“The Flowers That Bloom In The Spring”, Part 1: Southern California

Despite a lengthy drought, flowers appeared in their many enticing colors.  Our front entrance was covered with azaleas and outlined by roses.  The back saw the emergence of freesias and camellias.  Unfortunately, the hyacinths didn’t do well due to the arid soil and warm April temperatures.  However, we were pleased with the flowers that did bloom in the spring.  Below are some photos of the Spring flowers around our Southern California home:IMG_6317IMG_6322IMG_6325IMG_6326FW 32FW 34FW 35FW 7FW 15FW 18FW 19FW 22FW 29FW 30

About Robert M. Weiss
From an early age, I've taken great pleasure in reading. Also, I learned to play my 78 player when I was quite young, and enjoyed listening to musicals and classical music. I remember sitting on the floor, and following the text and pictures of record readers, which were popular in the 1940s and 50s. My favorites were the Bozo and Disney albums. I also enjoyed watching the slow spinning of 16s as they spun out tales of adventure. I have always been attracted by rivers, and I love to sit on a boulder with my feet in the water, gazing into the mysteries of swirling currents. I especially like inner tubing on the Rogue River in Southern Oregon. Since my early youth, I've been interested in collecting minerals, which have taught me about the wonderful possibilities in colors and forms. Sometimes I try to imagine what the ancient Greeks must have felt when they began to discover physical laws in nature. I also remember that I had a special passion for numbers, and used to construct them out of stones. After teaching Russian for several years, I became a writer, interviewer, editor, and translator. I continue to delight in form, and am a problem solver at heart.
