Six Words and Shadow Shot Sunday June 18-19, 2016

Lots of rain and snow this week!
Usually by now our wildflowers have to be tough to survive in this hard scrabble and rocky dirt. Even the weeds !
Not sure what the yellow flower above is, but
the flower below is Indian Paintbrush.

Meanwhile, Mt Shasta has fresh snow and the sage
in my herb planter box is very happy. 

Supposedly by tomorrow the temperatures will
rise into the 80's....so I'll enjoy the cooler weather today!
Have a great weekend and for all you Dads out there:
Happy Father's Day!
and...Happy Birthday to my son Paul!!!

    We can't control the weather very much but Mt Shasta needs moisture. So do you for the forest fires to slow down. I like your yellow flowers best, they have a nice disposition.
