Another great Fall walk

Another break in the weather. The clouds cleared off and sun came out. I went for a walk again using the same route. It is an excellent workout with just the right amount of uphill, downhill and level. It...

What's Bloomin in June

This has been such a dismal end to May. I'm still waiting for the temperatures to reach 75 degrees. Some of the plants have enjoyed the warm rain. The days are long up here above the 45th degree parallel....
