Fall Sunset Over The Pacific

The sunsets have been spectacular this past week!

The sailboat silhouette is a weather vane as you will see in the daytime picture.

This liquidamber tree reminds me of a mid-west fall,
boy does it ever, we'll be raking leaves for the next 2 months.

One of my favorite old outdoor statues picked up
in a 2nd. hand store 20 years ago.
I have it tucked away in a corner of the yard,
now covered with moss and ivy,it looks like
it's been there for a hundred years.

You can spot these poppies around the coastal areas in So. California,
they like dry soil conditions so they're not usually compatible with
most other garden plants. I tried once to get one to grow, drowned the poor thing.
My husband photographed this with his cell phone
while on a bike ride along the coast.

In 1983 this was our challenge in the
back yard, we didn't take too many pictures
as we were overwhelmed with the amount
of work to be done.
27 years later, we think it was worth it!

Before 1983

After 2012
