Hopefully Rich won’t mind me posting a photo of a weed! This thistle’s days in our garden are numbered, but until then, it makes an interesting winter photo subject.

It has been quite icy up here in the mornings. There’s still ice on the back deck and it’s almost noon. Apparently some drivers ended up in ditches yesterday morning on Meadowlake Road.

If California wants to send some of its rain this way, I wouldn’t mind! I’m starting to feel like the traditional weather along the Pacific coast has gotten pushed south. Western Washington is getting Canadian weather, we’re getting what Bellingham used to get, and California is getting our rain.
