Spring Sunrise






























A few rainclouds gathering at sunrise, just now, looking west out my kitchen window.

Thomas In Spring






























Thomas in spring isn't so different thus far from Thomas in winter.  He's still content with a bowl of turkey in the morning and a nap into the afternoon.

What's Blooming In Winter






























Flowers are abundant this time of year, with purslanes, above, and California poppies, below, taking center stage.

My Mother's Clivias






























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.

Brown Squirrels And Silver Seas























We've had a run of mid 70 degree days this week, with breeze whipped waves
























Seagulls overhead...






























And squirrels underfoot, all eager to share our fries.






























The bright winter sun turned the water silver.
