  1. There are so many plants in so many places, that, honestly, there's something either newly blooming, or that i didn't notice almost every DAY.
  2. Here's one i took earlier in the year, back when it had just re-opened for the year, before too much had started growing again - the staff had done a lot of cutting back during winter:
  3. The pic is from a newly opened up section of Heronswood, part Renaissance stump garden, and part tribute to the history of logging camps like Port Gamble. With this section added, i can get in a pretty good exercise walk, and i've been going there up to five times a week, as Heronswood also opened up to five instead of three days a week - Wednesday through Sunday. Er, there are a LOT of pics, but i haven't gotten around to editing them and posting anything since the current version of Microsoft software i have to use now is, er, a pain. Heronswood is moi version of mental health therapy.
  4. Oh, and i just checked my email, and Heronswood raised over $16,000 for Lytton. Not bad for a fundraiser that was put together in just a few days.
  5. It would have been better had we started earlier, but the baby steps we DID start taking are starting to take off - more electric vehicles, wind and solar power creeping in - lots of new houses are fitted with solar panels. Way more in the way of recycling instead of dumping. And the best way for the new generation to rebel against their elders is . . . that they become really good at it.
  6. The climate issue has become way too obvious to continue ignoring. It says a lot that all of the auto manufacturers are actually starting to seriously go electric or hybrid, i think.
  7. i just had a phone call from Jude - she was concerned about us - the various fires and so on in the Northwest, and the terrible flooding in Germany. i told her we were all okay, and we did some reminiscing. Her son is a paramedic, so of course that has had its own concerns. But, this time, they are nowhere near the fires in Oregon

  10. One of the employees at Heronswood who is married to a Port Gamble S'Klallam tribal member is from Lytton and has family there. She's gone back there to see them after the terrible fire. So, Heronswood has thrown together a fundraiser for Lytton, which will take place TOMORROW. $20 admission, an opportunity to pester the Director, Director Emeritus, Assistant Director, etc. with unlimited questions on a self-guided tour (they were originally planning guided tours, but evidently got more of a response than they had expected). Indian tacos for $15. if i go, it will be at the very end, when hopefully people have cleared out (not fond of crowds, and can't eat the amount of food in the tacos, which feature fry bread and are huge). But they also set up a donations page, and i sent them $100 of stimulus money. to Heronswood for getting something like this together so quickly.
