I was looking forward to a summer of exploring and photography and was in denial over some slight symptoms of the medical disaster that lay ahead.
Another springtime stimulus that I captured with my iPhone camera was the Diamond Clarkia at the edge of my driveway. These beauties have diamond-shaped petal tips, and the overall shape of the inflorescence is also a diamond, or more mathematically correct, a rhombus. Thus, the scientific name Clarkia rhomboidea.
So, I've had only fragments of the hiking, photographing, and blogging experiences I'm used ot, but am encouraged. Further encouragement came from cartoonist/artist Brian Fies who visited our classes at FRC a week and a half ago (find The Fies Files) and commented on this blog's most recent post.
