Six Words and Shadow Shot Sunday June 18-19, 2016

Lots of rain and snow this week!
Usually by now our wildflowers have to be tough to survive in this hard scrabble and rocky dirt. Even the weeds !
Not sure what the yellow flower above is, but
the flower below is Indian Paintbrush.

Meanwhile, Mt Shasta has fresh snow and the sage
in my herb planter box is very happy. 

Supposedly by tomorrow the temperatures will
rise into the 80's....so I'll enjoy the cooler weather today!
Have a great weekend and for all you Dads out there:
Happy Father's Day!
and...Happy Birthday to my son Paul!!!

and Lucy is back to staying cozy and toasty! 
Have a lovely day where ever you are!
And do thank Steve for Feline Friday!

June 12, 2016 at Café Maddalena in Dunsmuir CA

Blogger friends get together!
We had such a good visit with Sandee and Zane-
Lucy was on her best behavior and not just because
Sandee and Zane brought her a boat load of presents!
Lucy knows good humans when she meets them!
Thanks Sandee and Zane for visiting us 
and treating us to such a nice dinner!!!  
I had delicious wild quail with polenta and broccolini
Sandee and Zane each had steak, Spanish tortilla
and sautéed greens with a tomato basil pesto. 
And Russell had Lamb Shanks with Rigatoni.
Everything was delicious!
And as always- thanks to Sandee for Awww Mondays!
