Adventurous amateurs, suspecting that these are radishes, might pull one up by the roots and take a whiff, or even a little taste. Definitely radishes.
On that same drive, I took a 100-yard side trip on the Cherokee Road (to Table Mountain) to see if the Shooting Star were blooming in one of my favorite spots. They were! To be continued tomorrow with a few more photos and stories. Then, onward to my more recent Chico trip on Friday the 27th. Lots of changes in the two weeks that passed. Then we move on to thoughts about the forthcoming Friday the 13th in March. For now, I need to do some more school work.

I've managed to start the month of March with this thrown-together post, but I have taken a few dozen photos over the past two weeks that I hope to post soon and maybe get back to my one-a-day goal. Two weeks ago on a trip to Chico we got some good wildflower photos and saw some interesting things we couldn't photograph. Also nearly ran out of gas in the canyon when CalTrans came to our rescue. More details later.

This happy interlude in my office work has got me fired up about resurrecting my blogging activity. Still overdue are flower photos I got on last week's drive to Chico.

Witnessed extremes of human behavior last night and today. On the plus, I greatly enjoyed listening to my son Greg Willis and his friend Johnny Walker play blues by candlelight at the Drunk Brush Friday night. Kudos to all concerned for holding this event even though the power was out and all other businesses were closed and events were cancelled. Had a similar feel to the movie Titanic. Lots of efforts to keep spirits high despite reports that we might be without power for days.
During a break in the rain at mid-day today, I drove around to inspect conditions and spotted this great rainbow from Quincy Junction Road. The forecast calls for certain rain tomorrow and likely rain on Monday. Hopefully, it won't be accompanied by horrific winds. If I have internet service tomorrow, there will be more photos to post and more stories, including the one I announced in my previous post. I'll call it "Beware of Knowledge."

At the time of the heavy snow we had three birch trees. One of them has since bit the dust and only a 3-foot stump remains. I featured that one here a few days ago because of the great growth of Turkey Tail Fungus now decorating it.
