We’ve made it!
I went up to Ring Mountain yesterday, and it is clearly spring — flowers are blooming everywhere. Those are Fremont’s camas at the top, and California poppies by the rock.
My camera is really not up to photographing them decently, though. The flowers above are sanicles, and below are milkmaids —
It does better with the views.
M came home on Saturday. She seems more grown up every time she comes home. I’ve left her home today to rest — I’m trying to talk her into going on some hikes with me, but we may go to museums instead. If we’re lucky, we’ll do both.
Anyway — here, anyway, it’s spring!
