I always do these posts when I visit my mom in the Bay Area.
I love that steep garden, where I played as a small child.
And the view of San Francisco and the bay, seen over the roof from the top level of the yard.
The yard does look a little different.
When my three brothers and I were young, there were a lot more forts back there. And underground hiding places, and tunnels, and random holes, and army men scattered about.
Uh… that one is almost sexual, I just noticed.
This is supposed to be a family-friendly blog.
None of that plant porn here, oh no.
Then again, as my 95-year-old mother says: ‘Nature in the wild is seldom mild’!
The weather has been very nice… especially for the Bay Area in December.
It has been t-shirt weather in the middle of the day, something which doesn’t always happen here, even in the middle of summer.
Okay, I am going to get my new Christmas toy… the digital microscope… and make you guess what I am taking super-close-up images of. Come on, play the game. Nobody even tried to guess on the first post.
Maybe some things from this post will make it into the next post. HINT!
