I'm slowly coming to terms with the fact that seasons obey the calendar year here. Leaves and flowers aren't going to appear on trees until early April, whereas in California trees have been blossoming and leafing since January. In lieu of the realization that spring isn't going to happen until it's actually spring, I thought I'd share some photos from July in California. I'm not going to be going anywhere warm for Spring Break in a few weeks, so this will be my pretend vacation through space and time. These were taken seven months ago at the Elizabeth Gamble Garden in Palo Alto.
