I Can't Believe This Isn't Butter.... fly

Friday Night Photos

The last few days, every time I open the porch door, I'm dive-bombed by a cloud of Painted Ladies doing their thing on the soon-to-be-faded flowers.

I call this Not Rush Limbaugh, because it isn't Rush Limbaugh; rather, a far more interesting collection of rushes

If you have them, drop them. Happy Hot Friday.

Here are some Bumbles working hard.

@joe shikspack I did a mental check of what day of the week it is, pretty dense after reading the title of last evening's essay. My goldenrods are in full bloom. Another day of warmth here is predicted. War Admirals are typically the first spring butterflies for me.

Happy Saturday, C99ers!

Hey! my dear friends or soon-to-be's, JtC could use the donations to keep this site functioning for those of us who can still see the life preserver or flotsam in the water.

because I have no more room on my computer until I free up some space. So I'll post this link to an article with a video that shows a family being hit by lightning. It's amazing that they survived the strike.

I'm hoping that I can drive up to the mountains next weekend to take photos of the trees that are just starting to change. The mountains got snow yesterday and I hope it's still going to be there next week. I think that will make a nice contrast with the colors.
This week went from walking in shorts to bundling up in clothes. I don't mind the cold, but going from the 90's to the 40's in one week is a bit much, don't ya think?

I'll be in the bay area for a few days next month. Not sure if I'll have time to take pictures while I'm there.
