And Sunday, I went birding at Point Reyes and saw poppies and sky lupins and irises. And birds.
It was lovely.
I should really get a better camera . . .
Off to Arizona tonight with my daughter N to drive my mother and her dog to Denver, where we hand them off to my sister who will then drive them home to Massachusetts.
It’s the summer of the road trip — let the games begin!
Saturday I spent most of the day at home, and then around 7 I went out for a quick walk along the bay, by what I suspect is where the homeless people live.
The sun sets later now, so this is possible.
A brunch and an early dinner.
A chocolate carrot.
A three dog walk to the beach while the dinner cooked.
There are a few of these on campus, and I’m excited whenever I see them.
Here’s the foliage.
And in other news, my backyard is infested with finches.
Could be worse!
There is nothing to say, except that it is really springy here! Roses blooming everywhere!
Those of you who have just been snowed upon may not want to hear this, I know.
My back yard is like paradise, though.
That is all.
We climbed Mt Tam on Sunday. It was sort of by accident — we were following a hike posted online, on a teeny-tiny map, and ended up at the summit.
There was lots of Indian paintbrush.
And excellent views.
Spring is exploding here — these two roses are out the kitchen window, and in the backyard the mock orange and the Cecile Brunner are blooming.
N and her friends had set up a table outside in the garden to play the Settlers of Catan. One of them stayed until late at night working on a jigsaw puzzle. This is her second day home, and already the house is much livelier. It’s nice to have her home.
