I just wanted to take a moment and wish everyone a Happy Easter and to share more wildflower and other photographs to remind us of the rebirthing surrounding us each wonderful spring.
Turkey Flats got its name because the wild turkeys used to roam through here. Now, vehicles do, despite the signs prohibiting same. I am saddened when I see vehicles driving, parking, doing “donuts” in this wonderful wildflower meadow, disrupting the seeding and sprouting of the wildflowers.
But the birth and rebirth of living things is a wonder to watch. Here is a baby pine tree stretching and growing with the season.
And Oaks, battered and seemingly broken by the winds, sprout new and abundant life, to make up for their missing limb.
And the abundance of recovery –
And the beautiful blue lupine to wish you and yours a very Happy Easter!
On the weather front, a gentle rain started here around 12:15 pm, but did not last long. NOAA discussion informs us: “THEREFORE EXPECT RAIN TO RAPIDLY INCREASE THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS ACROSS MOST OF THE DISTRICT. RAIN WILL BECOME HEAVY FOR A TIME JUST AHEAD OF AND DURING THE FRONTAL PASSAGE WHEN WINDS WILL BE STRONGEST. BEST TIMING FOR THIS NOW LOOKS TO BE LATE AFTERNOON HOURS FOR THE NORTH BAY…EARLY EVENING BAY AREA AND MID TO LATE EVENING FOR THE MONTEREY BAY REGION.”
