White Flowers

This year we have an abundance of white roses, so I brought a few indoors. 
And our dying pathetic gardenia can still manage to flower.  I don't understand how.

Wendy's Long Birthday Weekend

I arrived in Santa Barbara Thursday, the 14th.  Wendy and I took a 4 mile hike up into Mission Canyon.  This is the area where the last bad fire in Santa Barbara came through - hardly can tell now.  Lots of water and beautiful wild flowers.
The view to the Pacific was wonderful.
The Birthday Girl with some of her presents.
The biking/skateboarding group meeting at the fish market.
Fresh orange juice from the backyard tree - for mimosas!
And of couse there were baseball and softball games.
Yes, Lucy has her very own scorebook - and knows what to do with it.

Unusual Tucson Weather

This weekend was very cold and rainy, with snow on the Rincons and Catalinas.
My makeshift rain barrel.
 Grey skies
The next morning!
