Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’ into the future

I can see it’s going to take a while to get into the bloggin’ habit. I was just astonished to find that I haven’t posted here in two weeks. I’ve continued my daily walk-abouts here in Morro Bay and have been taking a lot of photos. Awhile back I took this photo of a lovely succulent.

Today I met August, who with his wife Laurel tends a fabulous sedum garden on a hillside. I told him how much I enjoy his garden when I walk by. It’s quite small (at least by Oregon standards) but full of interesting driftwood, rocks, garden art and, of course, the sedums. I must get a photo of it to share with you. I was delighted when he generously offered me a start of this plant. I don’t know whether it will be hardy in Oregon, but how could I refuse?  

Other highlights of the past couple weeks were attending the Morro Bay Bird Festival and finally launching our kayak for the first time. No kayaking photos yet, as being a newbie kayaker, was reluctant to take out the camera. I do however have a few photos from the bird festival.

And not a bird, but a picturesque abandoned dock at one of the birding sites:

And is this sunset not gorgeous?

I hope to catch up a bit more in the next few weeks and share with you more of the sights here in Morro Bay before my winter rambles end and I return to Oregon at the end of the month and begin the new gardening year.

    • Alison, thank you for visiting my blog. I’m glad you enjoyed the photos, and I plan to add many more before the end of February of this area and then I’ll return to my home in Oregon. I’ll blog of my life there, my garden waking up for the spring and of my “histerical house” known as the Grand Old Girl because every time I turn around she costs another $grand$.

      I just looked at your lovely blog, love the plant photos. Would like to add you to my blog roll.
