Signs of Our Times, part 2

On March 31, I posted the first Signs of Our Times, showing Covid19 instructions displayed in local store windows. Today’s post is nearly a month later, and shows some changes since March (such as Face Masks Required for Entry, X marks the spot on sidewalk).  I wonder what might be new another month from now….

Rescued and Grateful

A couple months ago, the mobile home next to mine was being moved out, the owner having sold it and sadly, moved to a hospice situation. Before she left, she offered me to take whichever plants I wanted. There were a few cacti, none of which had been cared for in many years. The one […]

Stay Safe

While today’s world feels like the first picture, with a large wave of doom ready to crash down, I look forward to the day our reality is the second one, with all of us still standing, and safe. I took these pictures seven or eight years ago at Newport Beach, California, with the little CoolPix […]

Homebound This and Thats

Not able to go Out ‘n About these days, I find myself focusing the handy iPhone camera on things at home… flowers, little decor objects, etc. I’m sure most of you are doing nearly the same, passing the time, staying safe. Yesterday I did some spring cleaning on my large front porch… sweeping off the […]

Pit to Plant – Study of an Avocado

I realize the time frame of my baby avocado tree is nearly matching that of Covid19 here in the US. The first case of the virus was diagnosed in Seattle, Washington on January 21.  I bought the avocado on January 17, let it ripen, then cut it open on January 25. It was absolutely delicious! […]

Time Has Slowed To A Crawl

We used to complain about time rushing on by, hours that felt like minutes, blink and another year had passed. Well, it doesn’t seem that’s a complaint anymore… for me anyway. I do love that about the Safer At Home orders during the Covid19 pandemic. While I spent last week making face masks for family […]

Join Me On A Walk, part 2

…continuing on my walk (from part 1) through the garden during the Covid19 social distancing rules. As you can see, the roads were empty, shuttle bus shut down, trails and paths closed, drinking fountains taped off, day was overcast… altogether a very different experience, but I certainly got some much-needed exercise. ~SueBee

Join Me On A Walk, part 1

I discovered that a favorite Los Angeles garden where I’m a member is not closed due to Covid19. Rather, they’re offering advance reservation slots for members and other guests to enter. Upon reading that, I immediately made a reservation and drove the 40 miles early morning a few days ago. It turned out to be […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
