The sunflower

I planted a sunflower seed behind my office.  Six months later, this appeared.  Six feet tall, it looms over the fence, ocher guardian of the parking lot.  Last night a raccoon thought about walking across the hood of the office manager’s car, but the sunflower drew itself up and the raccoon knew it meant business.  I saw him defiling a blue Datsun a block and a half a way.

Jodi Triplett visits Sequoia National Park

Jodi Triplett's visit to Sequoia National ForestAfter 6 miles of hiking through underbrush, lupine-filled meadows, and fir, Jodi Triplett crested the hill and saw the lake.  Set against the granite peaks of Sequoia National Park, Lake Seville is as beautiful as it is remote.  The lake is shallow enough that the waters are cool but not freezing and Jodi Triplett enjoyed dunking her feet before returning home.
