Cheers to ~ winter in California ~

I really can’t believe that it’s a middle of the winter (calendar winter) and here in California Syringa (Lilac) is already blooming.
When I was growing up, in my childhood and in Easter Europe climate this tree (or bush?) is blooming in May! I associate my birthday (which is in the middle of May) with these flowers and smell…

I guess after years, decades of gloomy-weather-salt-on-the-roads-grey-sky-and-not-smiling-people (and all other “pleasures” of my teenager and childhood years as I remember those winter weather days back in Belarus)

now I really feel lucky to live in a place where 3-4 winter months doesn’t look black-and-white and are not “mushy and squashy”

and see this in January instead:
