A Walk at the Cemetery, 05-11-19

I got up around 6:00 this morning and futz around a little bit so I could get to the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery around 7:00 am (which is when they open their gates). The cemetery has several gardens, so I was basically looking for pretty flowers and pollinator species. It was 54° when I got […]

Found a Robin’s Nest at William Land Park, 06-23-18

I headed out with the dog to the William Land Park for a short walk. And I mean short. We were only out there for about 90-minutes. It was 73º already when we left the house at 5:30 am! and 80º when we got back home. On our way to the park, I came across […]

Last Day of Vacation: WPA Rock Garden

Last day of vacation.  Both Marty and  I got up around 6:00 this morning, and I headed over to the WPA Rock Garden and the duck ponds at William Land Park for my walk. The garden is starting to really show off; another week and it should be spectacular.  Lots of flowers and trees in […]

Cute Duckling and Green Heron

The weather was actually nicer today than it was yesterday, and after I dropped Marty off, I went over to the WPA Rock Garden and duck pond for a short walk.  When I first got there I was surprised to see a small flock of Mallards sitting in a long stretch of iceplant.  Must’ve been […]
