i remember that from when i lived in N. GA. nothing but pine flats for hundreds of miles in any direction, what did you expect?

Thanks to people posting pics of the flowers. I woke up to about 2 or 3"s of fresh snow today. Not taking any pictures of it.
If it makes you feel any better, it's currently 78° without a cloud in the sky where I am and the Mrs and I are tanning in the backyard sipping fizzy beverages. Not sure how that's supposed to make you feel any better but hey, I'm trying here

Nice day up here, too. About 65 and sunny. Rode my bicycle about five miles around town to see what was what. Quiet Sunday morning.

Cool here but sunny. Took the Bullmastiff pup for a long walk around the college. Campus is weirdly empty. Trees are blooming and bulbs are up but not a soul in sight. Plenty of squirrels though.

I understand, I have the same problem, but with Doug Firs, The local paper mill use to give seedlings away. Consequently, we've got 36 trees in two rows of hundred foot tall Doug firs along the east side of our house.

Trees are literally weeds here. I have to pull dozens of them out of the ground every year all around the house. I have enough trees.

"The Expanse" on Amazon Prime would be my top recommendation for binge watching. If you like politics, the show has a really interesting conflict triangle between Earth, Mars and the "Belters" (underclass of Asteroid Belt miners formed over generations).

If you're into philosophy, "The Good Place" is well worth watching. Goofy, endearing, and at times, thought-provoking.
Having watched S1 and S2 at least 5 times, S3 at least 3 or 4 times, and S4 twice...

Oh, hell, maybe I'll just watch it again!
I strangely like Carnival Row--not my usual thing but...
And Good Omens is hilarious---feels like a descendant of the Pythons.

Our entire back yard that's not planted with other stuff has these white flowers coming up. Bees love 'em.

Here's some Maple flowers and some that have become baby seeds on one of my bonsai. This is on a 35 year old tree.

We've got those purple iris. We have some hybrid ones that are just fat buds right now. Pics in a week or so.

Got in a long walk today, some people out walking their dogs. Next storm rolling in so it got windy. Talked to a woman at a distance, who was with her elderly mother both out for a walk and the mother was walking with a cane. Had some rain over the last two weeks, weeds but no desert flowers yet at least in my area.

Federal lands are still open and some LA people spent the weekend camping. I believe CA state parks are closed.

Weather looks beautiful, it's good to get outside even if it's your own backyard. Looks like tomorrow is gonna be another day of backyard tanning and fizzy drinks for us.

I find this thread important. Nothing like struggling together! From our family to lunch walk.

Cool, Sail Design!

Featureless, that looks peaceful. Heavy rain all day here, so not as peaceful.

Yeah, we all have our crosses to bear. You make very lovely boats, I must say.

Damn, it's beach weather here, been sitting out in the backyard with my girl all day. I'm actually looking around right now and can't spot a single cloud.

Snowing here at the Center of the Universe. Here’s an upside down photo. Quite lovely. Guess I can take the snows off now we’ve got our late-season snowfall out of the way.

Ah. I thought it was me, listening to too much Grateful Dead while sheltering in place. :wtf: I bet the prob lies in the imaging software, where it may need to be saved after rotation. Some need it some don't.
