So intense.

Friday, no conference, but a road trip with MDS down to Panoche Hills. We took the Hollister route and saw many wildflowers. I met a new to me flower in a new to me family: Mentzelia lindleyi, Lindley's blazing star, in the Loasaceae. It's quite a striking yellow flower with a bright orange tone center. Once we got to Panoche Valley we were in the rain shadow, and everything was dry and sere. I only saw one type of blooming plant, which might be San Joaquin tarweed: i'll need to look more closely at my photos.

I'm feeling the delight in California and the delight in North Carolina. I am also feeling the ease that comes from sharing bits and pieces of my life with friends and hearing of their lives. (Although i fear i do more talking than listening.)

Today we go walk at Edgewood Park, and this evening there's a small gathering where i'll share a little movie of our house (and i'll figure out how to get that on-line) and Christine's sister's movie.
