Indoor/Outdoor Sun
It has been a nondescript weather week here. We see on the news that weather in the Midwest, East, and Southern areas of the country has been anything but. After two full weeks the indoor plants are thriving. All 7 have visible growth though some are much f...

A Very Warm Valentine Day Greeting
The sun is working overtime this week in Northern California. The days are warm and sunny -- it does not do much for the drought, but it is very pleasant. This week has been filled with sessions -- sessions from the world's largest genealogy event held in S...

West Coast -- East Coast
There is a BIG difference in the geographic coasts in terms of current weather. We here in Northern California will again be in the 70s this weekend. Not so in the East. It is fair to say that the respective roads look similar to the above. I have lived wit...

Rain . . . and Then Some
It's true, we did get some rain this week. Not a lot but some. The grass and other plants appreciate it. The forecast does not look good though for much more rain in the near future. We still are living in the shadow of a big drought. There's something comf...

'twas the week before Christmas and all . . .
It is amazing how the time period between Thanksgiving and Christmas flies by! Fortunately we managed to squeeze in our Christmas shopping -- and none of it included a mall. We did venture out to a couple of free standing stores to see if we would feel the ...

Siberian Pineapples
The weather this week alternated between warm, fairly warm, cool, fairly cool and somewhere in between. Not of course to the coastal extremes that we see on the news. Eight feet of snow in some cities back East while very little snow pack here in the West: ...

Pineapple Express -- Umbrella Down
All week we were being warned of the pending storm to hit Northern California. After many days of "nothing" to speak of in terms of weather -- it arrived on Friday: Apparently this weather has a definite channel right from Hawaii to us here in California. A...

It's Just Grand . . .
We did not get any rain this week, but we did get some sunshine -- enough that I think some of the plants thought it to be springtime. The roses are already starting to look grand. I hope that they don't pay the price as we are still getting some cold weath...

. . . A Christmas Moon all through the Week . . .
Each evening off the deck in the west appears a "Christmas Moon" and on Christmas Night it appeared as a yellow crescent in the sky above our arbor. The air was crisp and clear and while on the phone with my daughter I snapped a few pictures, one of which a...

Pineapple Express -- 12/13/14 . . .
Right now it is a beautiful sunny Saturday. I believe that we are in-between storms. The news all week has been about the storming on both coasts. But today you'd have no idea here that we had weather . . . Above are some of the pictures taken in our town o...
