Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 4: So Green!

We've had a reprise of Winter this week, with lots of rain, wind, and chilly temperatures (back down into the 40s at night - had to put the heat on in the house yesterday to warm up). 

This morning, however, the sun was out in full force, and everything is so very green and lush from the recent soaking!  All of the flowering trees are bursting, the flowers are perking up, and the grass in and around Roosevelt Park and Capitol Park has doubled in length since the weekend.

The colors and quality of bright sunlight with blue sky and white puffy clouds are almost tropical, and the radiance of the morning made me realize how much I'd been missing the sun over the past few days.
