First Week of Summer in the City
What City?  It used to be San Francisco and a few others before that . . . but now -- Healdsburg. This week definitely says "Summer".  The a/c has gotten a good workout. The skies have produced some amazing shows: The above sky photo happened last evening a...

Homebodies . . .
It is no secret that lately we've become "homebodies" i.e. we are enjoying the simple pleasures of things around our home. The Irises in the front have a different lifestyle from the other blooming flowers in that they do not bloom every day -- they seem to...

EOW, EOM -- So . . .
It's no big deal, but next month is almost here, less than 24 hours to go until the month that summer will begin anew. Here in Northern California it is confusing sometimes as to the weather and what season it really is. The last couple of weeks the morning...

Another Little Princess
There used to be a chain of discount stores in California named "White Front". They are long gone but the front of our house has a lot of white right now. We have hundreds of white roses and other flower varieties going on. We have noticed several folks jus...

♫ Saturday, In The Back ♪
We thought it was the 4th of July  odd that it was so nice out . . . so early in the season. Mid April and it could have been mid-summer in other locales. If it were not for the drought it would be so nice. We've taken to hand watering most of the above and...

GEESE, HEADIN' SOMEWHERE
I am not sure exactly where these birds were headin', but they were certainly vocalizing the journey. Dino was most interested in the several v-shaped formations that flew overhead the other day. If you click on the above, to the left of the arrow can be se...

It's Generational
Again this week so far -- cool in the morning (enough to put the heater on for a bit) and then warm almost to the point of needing the a/c. But here is something to get warmed about: Thanks to Jim Hiles for sending me the above picture. It actually is the "...

Just not in our area . . . all week they have predicted that Northern California would receive some rainfall -- but it did not happen in our area. Maybe next week. Water is now a real issue and restrictions are being put into place. The above "Wordle" displ...

A New Look
I'll probably be late next week as well . . . for a variety of reasons this post is being written later than usual. I think I'll attempt to shake things up and write and post more often with shorter posts. This is what spring looked like to us on Saturday ....
