This afternoon's sky has been wonderful. Bright blue with white puffy clouds and gray clouds and a foggy misty overcast -- all depending on when ya look at it. I took this a wee bit less than an hour before sunset -- those clouds along the horizon look pretty thick so I may not get much color tonight.
Haven't seen as much of the eagles this winter as I did last winter. Am hoping the spring-like temperatures will coax them out. Saw daffodils blooming alongside the road when I went into town today -- and my daffs in the big pot on the deck are up but have no flower heads yet.
My lemon thyme has survived the winter on the deck and is putting forth a lot of new growth. The other plants in the two herb planters are still looking pretty dormant or dead. My peony (which did not bloom last spring) is setting forth a lot of new growth -- am hoping moving it from the back deck to the front (bayside) deck will do the trick and it blooms this year. At the cottage by the creek in the redwoods, it wanted morning sun and shade during the afternoon -- the sun was so strong in CA that it would burn in the afternoon sun -- but it seems happier getting the softer afternoon sun up here.
