Summer vacation

At the cabin. Rainy afternoon in the San Bernardino National Forest, and a manzanita in a dart of sunlight.

Speed blogging tonight. Photos from a summer that was lazy and happy and busy all at once.

Metcalf Meadow, up the road.

Salvia pachyphylla at the Xeriscape Demonstration Garden in Big Bear Lake.  

A work shed on the Big Bear Xeriscape Garden Tour. (The garden was wonderful, too.)

Back home in the foothills.

Aloe karasbergensis.

Agave potatorum var. verschaffeltii.

Pomegranate bloom on a young tree, a volunteer from the school garden.

What I saw last week when I went to buy a new kitchen faucet...

And look what was still there today!
