I think I heard somewhere that it hasn’t been above 60 degrees for 6 months where I live. Needless to say, it’s been a dark, cold season and I think we all are ready for the sun to show itself.
Yesterday, it was around 75 degrees in the evening and not too sunny, but just enough. I went outside with my camera and took photos of the few blooms I could find around our terribly landscaped apartment complex. I just wanted to share them with you all. I guess I was just too excited that it was finally starting to feel like Spring again.
Now, I know you’re thinking, “why did she post a picture of her car? That has nothing to do with spring.” Well, for me it does! When it’s warm, my bf and I clean our cars like it’s going out of style. Sometimes twice a week. I can’t stand a dirty car. I especially pay a lot of attention to my wheels and can’t stand to have even a speck of brake dust on them. Yuck! Well, we just spent about an hour at the car wash, which is typical for us. I wash it with just the high pressure soap and water, no brush because it will scratch the clear coat. Then, using a piece of leather we dry the car, which is an awesome material to use because it’s extremely absorbent and doesn’t have any loose pieces to scratch the surface. If I were to recommend any car cleaning products, there are two that deserve recognition: 1) clay and 2) Meguiar’s quick detailer. Trust me, these are two of the most amazing products out there. 😀 In a nutshell, I’m just really happy it’s spring and I can be outside cleaning my car and just soaking up some sun!
Also, if you’ve any idea what some of these plants are called, let me know! I studied human anatomy in college, not botany 😀 No excuse I know!
