Hello, Possums! I'm back after a break. There's nothing wrong; I was just concentrating on other things for a while, like taking a UCLA Extension class, having a painting party with one girlfriend, and a shopping day with another.
One thing I don't like about the San Fernando Valley is the summer--it is hot as the dickens during the day! But if I venture out early enough, I see beautiful, fresh flowers with the morning dew--no, scratch that; it's probably leftover sprinkler water--still on them.
They are so pretty! We grow roses really well here in the Valley:
And Morning Glories grow almost *too* well:
Zinnias, Penstemon, and Petunias:
Oh, how I love Foxgloves. I can't get these little boogers to grow in my yard, but for some reason my neighbor has them by the dozens:
Penstemon again. What a glorious color:
Dewdrops or sprinkler drops, it hardly matters: roses look beautiful with water droplets on them.
