Couldn't wait to share
This was the view from our front porch this morning. Wet and soggy and gray.
How about THIS for a change of scenery? I think it was somewhere around Ramona. I made Jerry pull over so I could take a picture.
I was excited to see these succulents growing right out of the embankment, just inches from the road. It was a winding road with no shoulder, and I was going nuts looking for a turnout that was close to where some of these were growing. Finally I found these. They were HUGE, maybe the size of a car hubcap. Dudlleyas, I think. There were other kinds that had narrower leaves, but we didn't find a good place to stop and see them.
Anyway, now we are at our little Casita in Borrego Springs. We've uncorked the wine, fired up the BBQ (and the Wi-Fi) and we're ready for a good time!
