Siobhan, so sorry about your eHarmony experience. Sounds downright creepy.
In one of those strange coincidences, my son and I were just discussing the differences between a California and a northern spring just a few minutes ago on the way home from shopping. He spent a couple of years in LA. I just got back from PA where the spring-flowering trees were in all their glory, and up here the trees are just getting geared for it. So I get it twice this year, lucky me! I absolutely adore spring, especially for the trees, with the new leaves still multicoloured, and thin enough to catch the sun like Chinese lanterns. Side by side with a crabapple in full bloom, or a magnolia tree strutting its stuff (not too many of those around here, but there are a few hardy varieties and a few people have them), they can be breath-taking. I happily go through winter just to get to spring...

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
