Happy Fourth of July!


The first thing I want to do is appologise to all of you.  For some reason I set this post to publish today, not the forth of July weekend.  Why….who knows.  I can think of many reasons, however I found it tonight and I don’t have any idea why! So i’m going to publish it anyway.  The flowers are from my friend Johnelle’s garden, and so beautiful I couldn’t resist.

Today is a special day, a day to have family picknicks, & the gathering of friends & family.  This is a weekend we all love to go to a special place to camp, or for some of us, the retreat might be a “staycation.”   For many, fireworks are a yearly part of the 4th.  For us, this year we didn’t go.  It was too cold here in North San Diego for me to sit comfortably.

I hope all of you had a safe and fun 4th of July.

Thursdays Time out for Art




I was sitting outside realizing the other day, and looked over to the side of my yard only to see this amazing slash of color.  I haven’t any idea what their names are, but the oranges and reds were a glow in the sunlight, and it took my breath away.

Since this is Thursday Time out for Art, I thought Zebra Designs & Destinations would like to see what a Southern California back yard might look like.  We’ve gone succulents because of our water shortage, but with these colors we’re not missing out on much.
