A Little Bit of Purple

It's just a little bit spring left over in Southern California. This spring is pretty short due to lack of rain in the winter and many heat-waves early in the year. Wildflowers are parched early in March. You can only find some sight of spring in local gardens or farm where rain is not really contribute much. I always like lavender flowers ever since reading about it in books or story especially this one - Royal Velvet Lavender. It's such a beautiful name, isn't it. Even in a local farm, this year lavender doesn't bloom as much. The plants are much smaller and the bloom is more scattered. I cannot believe it is this dry this early in year. I think I should make the rain dance now even if it's still early.
