The Life in My Years

An anthology of life

The overabundance of rain this winter and spring has created a deluge of color in the yard. When the flowers are in bloom as they are this spring Cora likes to say that they’re happy. The bougainvilla at the corner of the garage seems to be almost giddy with joy.

Instead of taking in the whole I decided to try some more intimate views.

      Beautiful indeed. It was a blessing to get some reward from all the rain that’s poured down on Northern California this year.
