♫ 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...

Spring Blooms Spring Moon
A varied and eventful week! Again we had a visitor from the NW and a nice visit too getting caught up about friends and family. Last night, between 3 am and 4am I snuck a peek at the total moon eclipse and could see it from our back window. And the blooms a...

SPRING MOON MADNESS
This has been a full week -- so what does that mean -- all weeks are full to some extent. But I mean that my week has been filled with a variety of things. And a lot seems to be happening. It actually has finally reached springtime: First of all the dogwood...

Prediction -- Rain
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...

The days this week have been mostly warm & sunny. Today is a little cloudy but that is okay for a change. It did rain ever-so-slightly the other day and it feels a little humid now as well. The week has been a mixture of scrambling for tax-related documents...
