March really is the best time of year in Austin. The mornings start out cool enough for a jacket, but by the afternoon it’s warm enough for shorts and bare feet. I feel obligated to spend as much time as possible outside while I can before the miserable heat of summer sets in – usually around mid-May.
The plants and trees seem to agree that this is the best time, too.
The Red Bud trees are covered in purple blossoms.
The Bradford Pear trees are in full bloom.
Bulbs have finally poked their heads out of the ground.
And my Christmas cactus is covered in flowers.
