In San Diego, due to our year-round mild weather, we generally recognize spring when the orioles appear and the native wildflowers such as poppies and lupines are in bloom. Spring is about the only time it may not be sunny in San Diego due to the marine layer that forms due to the warming ocean. But we don't let that stop us from enjoying the flower displays and springtime festivities!
