My daughter joined me for a walk around the neighborhood yesterday. Ice plant is blooming something fierce right now, enticing bees with pollen laden pistils.
African daisies are used frequently as ground cover around here and make a cheerful carpet in sunny patches.
These random tulips were a surprise, blooming at the side of the road. Lastly, a neighborhood walk is never complete without a fence charge and serious squawking from a half crazed goose.

My mom always had the greenest thumb. She had my sister split her prize yellow clivia a couple years back to share with us. Mine is planted right out the kitchen window, thriving and multiplying, where it can be enjoyed every day.

Rain is on the way, we're told. The storm is out to sea, coming down from the north, circling around and then moving in from the south, probably tonight.
A woman in a wedding gown was on the sand, getting her makeup done and having photos taken.
Two hooded hunters searched for buried bounty.
And upon my return, a warm greeting from a cool cat.

Every Sunday my dad comes over for breakfast and a game or two of Scrabble. At 87, he still finishes the New York Times crossword puzzle daily, so besting him is a challenge. Yesterday my daughter stopped by and joined us for a round, which ended abruptly when Thomas the cat decided he wasn't getting enough attention and jumped onto the table, scattering tiles.
