Friday was a brilliantly sunny day. Got up to 74 -- did some putzing with the plants on the bayside deck. Towards sunset, some high clouds started to come in and they have stayed all day today.
These are in one of the beds below and to the south of the deck. Such a gorgeous blue against the greens of the various grasses.
The barn swallows are back along with a lot of other little birds. Am seeing goldfinches, dark headed juncos, grosbeaks, and a variety of finches and sparrows at the feeder, and, of course, the jays.
This week is the 30th anniversary of the eruption of Mt. St Helens. Lotsa local programming specials about it today -- am off to watch. Now that I know the area, I'll be looking the cities and areas impacted from a different perspective than I did when living in the Bay Area 30 years ago.
