    When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.

      I am sooooo envious. From the bus coming home weeknights I can see carpets of purples and blues overlying the hills surrounding our town. Have wanted to get up into Manhattan Canyon to take in the wildflowers but it is just too consarned soggy for verbification. Thanks for the cyberhike.

      Cleveroldtoad- Get off the bus! We had a big rain the night before our little adventure. My feet got muddy but In the end it all turned out all right. Luckly we did not have to travel far to get these shots. arboretum.fullerton.edu/info/info.asp

      Great quote ans a beautiful photo. The two colours look so good against each other. Van Gogh would have approved...
