Some added photos to today's post. The temperatures have been ideal for me right now. And the humidity is low [well, low for the coast]...Mid 80s and 40%!! Bud and I have been working our tails off outdoors the last few days. Trimming. Raking. Planting. Painting. Etc. etc. etc. Last week while unlocking the yard's gate to let the meter reader in the yard, I happened to notice that the pomegranate tree I planted just last Spring had flower buds!!! I was so happy to see that the leaves were back, but never even thought it'd bloom this year!! I've been keeping a close vigil on its progress. Here are a few photos from the back yard for the season---
