My husband and I left our Northern California hideaway and drove across the Sacramento River Valley on Wednesday afternoon. It was 95 degrees F. Thank goodness we have air conditioning. I watered my garden before we left and hoped for the best.
The air was clear across the valley, and the view of the Sutter Buttes was majestic.
The light from the west produced decent photographic conditions, so I convinced my spouse to pull over for a brief photo shoot (even though we had just stopped for sandwiches a bit earlier). I was not disappointed. This is such a beautiful area!
After completing our business in Butte County, we headed down to San Francisco Bay to visit a friend. Then we stayed in the south bay area and attended our niece’s college graduation in Santa Cruz. Now we are back home, and it is in the mid-nineties again. But the garden survived, and grew quite a bit in the last three days. It’s parched, but still thriving!
