Today we went to a gathering of poets (for critical editing of one another's work), then,with our good friend, Caroline, we went up to the combination music store and cafe called "The Musical Offering." Otto and I shared a delicious (huge) baguette filled with roasted yellow peppers, red onion, mushrooms and eggplant, all hot from the oven. On the way back to our car we passed the pelargonium at the left. Since the heat-moderating fog has moved in from the ocean today, the picture is not in sunlight. The fog is very welcome after the first two days of this week, which were sweltering!
Our front yard and entry patio are dominated by the pink geraniums at right and below - pretty but voracious, consuming all the water and nourishment that used to sustain other flowers and geranium varieties. They grow as high as the patio walls, as seen below.
Have a nice Mothers' Day!
