Can't resist sharing a shot of a view from our house snapped a few minutes ago, around 7:40 am. I have so many photos of this view all in folders called "misty morning." I just love it.
I also notice the redbud is starting to bloom. I have two tiny western redbuds (Cercis occidentalis) about 3 years old and two feet high. The deer rather like them so I think this year I'll cage them. The redbuds that is.
In other news, I had a visit from Jeffrey Caldwell and Cameron Colson yesterday. Got good advice from Jeffrey on chaparral clearing we need to do for fire safety, and Cameron did some H_M_O treatments (weed obliteration) around the place - I'll post some pictures soon.
