Posting photos and sprinkling a few descriptions down the page reminds me of those packet postcards that unfold like an accordion. This one is for you.
Sun starts showing up sometime after 6 am these days. This was about 6:30 Monday morning.
Phoebe wasn't ready to get up yet.
We met brother Steve at the Point Reyes Station House for breakfast.
Poppies are in out in abundance in the coastal range and the green hills in the morning light are a feast for the eyes. My driver wasn't stopping for pictures and I couldn't have done the views justice. Spring has come fast and will likely leave us just as quickly. I hope there are beautiful vistas greening up in your neighborhood too.
Back at home not everything is green...check out these new rose thorns!
And the iris are bursting open!
The old shed next door is crushed with roses and vines. The new neighbors will be taking it all down and out eventually but in the meantime I am enjoying its wild abandon. It is part of my northwest view from the deck and it reminds me of cabins and shed in the valley where I grew up. My brothers and friends and I had names for all the derelict buildings and stories often sprang from our fertile imaginations if not our explorations.

It will go in a gopher basket of course...
So there it is...you got an accordion postcard from the
