Everything’s Blooming

Everything’s Blooming

Our mother is the type of gardner who’s not particularly interested in gardening. She loves flowers, she enjoys a well-designed yard, yet she’d prefer to plant some things, maybe throw a few seeds and let nature take it’s course. She did receive some design guidance for her front yard, but in the backyard? One never […]

Poppy Super BOOM

Poppy Super BOOM

We are grateful to Ralph DeFelice of DayTripsLA for more stunning photography. Ralph and his kids found a “poppy super BOOM,” as he calls it, in Walker Canyon, Lake Elsinore. This year’s California poppy boom may be found about 62+ miles south of us, down along the I-15 between Alberhill and Lake Elsinore. Though the […]

Poppies, Cacti & Cats in Trees

Poppies, Cacti & Cats in Trees

We continue our joy of spring. All the growing and flourishing. The vibrancy and hues. The shapes big, small… and humongous.

It’s Spring!…Isn’t It?

It’s Spring!…Isn’t It?

Today, our sister in New Hampshire—where the estimated snow accumulation is 48 inches—had to shovel her snow banks because they’re too high. After clearing an older relative’s driveway, which she’s done repeatedly these past weeks, she came home to shovel the snowbanks, to bring ’em down a notch in anticipation of another storm. She was […]

Magnificent & Messy

Magnificent & Messy

Look down the lane as you drive or look up while on a stroll and you’ll see massive umbrellas of grouped panicles, flowering purple-blue. It’s magnificent. If you look down, you’ll see a dusting—along the street, across the sidewalk, on green lawns—of fallen blossoms. Some see a magical carpet, some see a mess. It’s spring and […]

Is This Spring?

Is This Spring?

With a high today of 87ºF, has summer unofficially arrived? Officially, the vernal equinox marking the first day of spring is Thursday, March 20th, but flip flops, shorts, and tank tops have been the wardrobe of choice as people swarm the outdoors—running, cycling, pushing baby strollers, or heading to the park—with a spring in their […]
