Wildflowers. When a friend of mine asked about this flower’s name, I replied, “Yellow.” Helpful wasn’t I? She said that she’d seen them in Hawaii. I sort of connected the dots by saying that the flower must like warm, moist weather. Close. It likes moist soil and warm, humid conditions. Around here, people call it […]


Only a fool would say that. I thought that it would be bad, but I didn’t think it would be this bad, Covid-19 still growing in some places and calming down in others.

Artists use the interplay between light and dark to work. All of us needs light to live. Artificial light is fine, but sunlight is the real deal. […]


New blooms. In winter. I’ve never seen this plant in the time that I’ve moved here. I’ll have to wait until these blooms open. I think I know what they might be, but I won’t know until I see them. Sorta like life. Make all the plans that you want. The minute you put them […]
