Full moon today.

Here's the full moon with streetlight in San Francisco, early this morning.  Photo thanks to my early-rising friend Susie!
Beautiful sky a few nights ago in Glendale.
 Always dramatic skies.
 Dollar mountain with massive cloud bank behind.
 Our house with massive cloud bank overhead.
 Trusty weather station in action.
 Yesterday morning.
 Nasturtiums last hurrah, they will wilt with the coming freeze.
 Pond is pretty much full, ready for frogs.

Sunny Glendale morning.

It doesn't get any prettier than this!  Deep green Dollar Mountain looks gorgeous with contrasting golden trees in the foreground.

Our pond is nearly full, thanks to some recent rains.

I think I see white clouds or fog there to the southwest. I must be imagining it. Things are not likely to look so pretty after this coming week's snow. The pampas blooms will get all bedraggled and the bamboo will be heavy and bent into the pond. Fleeting fall beauty.

 The trusty weather station keeps tabs on all weather.  It was all I could do to keep the wisteria from attacking it this summer, it kept winding its way up the pole and ALMOST into the weather station.  Silly wisteria, I'd like it to go any other direction.

Sunset from Bodega Bay this evening.

Beautiful photos courtesy my great pal Susie, taking a little vacation in Bodega Bay.

When in Bodega Bay, one must remember the REAL stars of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds."

First snow

Snow and fog on top of our Dollar Mountain.  Ok I must admit winter is coming. Darn! Photo courtesy my wonderful husband.

Fall color beautiful photos courtesy my wonderful husband.

Hillside to our north, glorious in sun and fog.

Gorgeous red trees by the elementary school.

Even Trees Inc. can't ruin the beauty of this tree, they have cut away many branches but it is spectacular anyway.  I say put your power lines underground and stop butchering trees.

This spectacular photo doesn't do this tree justice, it is radiant and fantastic!

Cat with bark.
