I don’t often get out to watch a sunset over the sea – here, in Montana de Oro State Park, overlooking the Pacific. It was gorgeous!
Today I took off for a long-needed walk in the local botanical garden. Spring is ending, summer is here. My own plants are looking good – flowers, vegetables, fruits and herbs. The botanical garden, too, is entering the beginning of summer, and the air redolent with the dry scent of pine and sage.

The temperatures this summer, locally and worldwide, seem to have been – and continue to be – brutal. Finally, nights are cooling down and the day’s highs are 85, not 105, in Fahrenheit (not C fortunately!).

I think this says it all!
I went hiking with a friend along a creek in Santa Barbara County . . . pushed up against a log, these fallen leaves let me know that autumn was here and summer was winding down.
