The bush outside my door. . ..

“If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies.”

Our local indigenous plants all(?) keep their leaves through winter, only the imports lose theirs, like the HUGE oak next door.

In fact our autumn can look more like a spring to those from colder climates, after the onslaught of summer when everything is dried and baked by the hot northerly air from the hot interior, the autumn showers bring forth blossom from many of the locals. It can appear spring and confusing to visitors that see autumn leaves and spring-like blossom at the same time.

We're having a bit of an Indian summer too, it's a bit wet this morning but still warm, shortsleeve stuff, mild, no wind.

The promise of winter is on the air. In summer, winter is by favourite....and winter, summer is my favourite...ha, no not really, spring and autumn are by far the best, of both worlds.

All the trees and bushes seem to be stuck in this state that you show. What we need is a sunny day, then we'll have full on leaves. It's been raining for 6 days now. The road is closed because the river has swallowed the bridge once again and the park where Pugsley likes to slide down the slides is completely underwater.
The grass that my husband likes to fertilize is about 8 inches tall though.

Didn't I tell you winter was gone?

That looks like a Weigela bush or a Hydranga. What do you think, ask your Grandma. We are about at the same 'stage' as you as far as spring goes.
