A Thomist learns to party on.
At least it's not cats!oops ....
Please continue with the flowers. We aren't going to get any of our own for at least another month.
Took Mrs Ohioan out to the desert this week to see the "super bloom". It was amazing.
Great tip, Ohioan. Maybe we'll go out and do that this weekend.
Notice I said "week" not "weekend". The traffic and crowds during the weekend were so bad that they called it flower-geddon. It wasn't so bad on Monday (although the traffic in Borrego Springs proper was bad). If you go on a weekday it is way better. If you go on A Thursday or Friday and route through Ramona/Santa Ysabel you can grab some bread at Dudley's. In any case: take your own food and water.We also stopped in Julian on the way back to get some apple pie... MMMH!
Righto.By the way, I miss doing macro flower photography. Not sure what happened there, I just stopped doing it.
I posted a few pics from our visit (including an insect shot for Tim) on my blog.
Three times now this month we've had freezing rain and/or snow that zapped the crocuses that had sprung up in my lawn since the previous cold snap.
Ohioan@Heart,I just realized I ought to tell you - I line in "the heart of Ohio" (but I'm a Hoosier)
I grew up on Ohio Street in South Bend, Indiana (where Studebaker cars were made). Now I live in Mansfield, Ohio (where the Studebaker company got started when it was a buggy-whip maker) ... and my house is on a hill above Ohio Street.Is that wierd, or what?
The Ohio St thing is odd (but the rationalist in me says, law of large numbers and we notice the odd coincidences). I never got to Mansfield, but know about the Tygers (to anyone else - that's the spelling). Grew up in a suburb of Akron.
Yes, I know it's just an odd coincidence and that people tend to notice such things and to ascribe significance to them that they do not have.
