Part-Time Half-Moon
This week kept us busy, busier than ever. While the weather was hot, warm and in-between, we went about our everyday business: I did work on and in the tree a bit, but not enough to warrant any reporting. I answered and responded to a few cousin requests an...

THIS 'N' THAT
This was one of those weeks where we both wondered "what'd we do?" We went through all the motions and the iterations of a week -- but nothing stands out -- maybe that's a good thing. While we weren't watching, a few new blooms showed up. The weather threat...

HALF MOON YARD
We are fortunate that our house has a western exposure in the back and that we have a clear sky view throughout the day. In the evening though special clear nights give way to some very interesting sights: All this week after darkness begins, the western sk...

Behavin' Bee Haven
This week it reminded me a lot of my days in the Pacific Northwest with one exception -- not a lot of rain but a whole lot of gray . . . we did get a smattering of rainfall one day this week -- Wednesday. It came the day after one of the days that we can wa...

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...

Dem Lazy Daze . . . Over
I'm not sure if it is the power of suggestion or just my imagination -- but the skies this morning were strangely colored and I thought there was the faint smell of smoke . . . but one thing I am sure of was the noticeable heat at an early hour -- supposed ...

Tower Flower Power
It was an energizing week is some respects. While we stayed fairly close to home we managed to accomplish some of our vague objectives. It seems like forever ago that I had to come up with "goals & objectives" quarterly -- and then face the dreaded reviews ...

Saturday, it IS the 4th of July . . .
This was a HOT week, today is a bit cooler and for that we are glad! Earlier this week, I think the same day that turned out to be extra long (leap-second day) I checked the thermometer out back: On the left it shows a couple of degrees hotter than 100 but ...
