The last month and a half have been much more like Spring than Winter - Well except for the strong Santa Ana's (big dry east winds or RRR). Sunny skies, warm temps - the plants in the backyard are putting out blooms, some colorful, some not so much.

A little substitute sun/warmth for those back east struggling a bit :-) Spring is coming for everyone - I hope!...

California Dreamin'

By: WatchinTheSky, 11:28 PM GMT on February 15, 2015

Just a quickie blog while organizing photos for the next one :-)

I'll set the scenario up -

This is Southern California

Everyone is sure they have the big Lotto numbers ;-)

It's Valentine's Day

People seem to start dreaming

A friend (with a penchant for some of the finer things) invited me to go to a car event. Why not? Now, what would I buy for my Valentine?

If I can get on the ball, I got enough gift cards to pay for most of replacing the the dead other webcam, I miss not having the long view down the valley. And there might even be a storm worth seeing tomorrow and Wed :-)

Speaking of storm, WU has a Winter Storm watch for my zip code. So I thought I would take a look outside in a northerly direction, the direction the storm is coming from.

Invasive - (especially of plants or a disease) tending to spread prolifically and undesirably or harmfully

One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.. to add a bit of inclusiveness to an old saying ;)

Plants – It’s fair to say no plant starts out as an invasive. A plant in its native location has a place and function. Most invasive outbreaks aren’t started...

We're off to visit ex-neighbors and tour a bit of Colorado! First stop - Denver.
A quick tour of the Denver Botanic Gardens, they are exhibiting some Chihuly Glass placed in and around the plants.

Not glass, but giant lily pads! Didn't see any giant bull frogs, though ;-)

A boat load of balls! There is a massive amount of glass in all of the exhibit.
