Window is finally done!

The Ginko out front has started to bud/leaf out. The one in back has started but not much there because of the trimming.

Lyn's flowers up by the front door. Pretty nice this year.

We planted the Jade in the ground. It kept falling over in the pot, just too big when it was windy.

The window is all painted, two coats and four colors - but it looks pretty good.

Recent things around the house

Here is my hand. You can kind of see where he cut out the cyst. Feels fine now that I can move it around. One week with the splint was enough.
Also trimmed the "freeway tree" in the front. Keep the leaves and seeds off the roof for a while.
Here is the Kumquat tree in the front. Lots of fruit every year.

The wall is back up- at the bottom you can see where they cut back the tree trunk - should be good for a few years before the wall gets pushed over again.
This is view of the now trimmed Ginko in the back.
Here is the set up for painting the outside. Looks real safe for an old guy - broken hip here I come
Here is the new computer set up in the back room. Purchased the 2tb drive for back up with Novastor. Work okay first time.

Here is the newly installed windows. The visqueen on the outside is in case of rain until it gets painted. Haven't got the painting inside yet either, will attack soon.

I didn't get all the pictures into the first post for Anza Borrego, so here are some more pictures.

Okay, trying to show the trip we took to Anza Borrego to look at the wildflowers. There were lots of people, but pretty scarce for the flowers. The rain gave the weeds a head start so there were no fields of flowers. Lyn took a few shots that should give you an idea.

The 70's Room - Dillon and Sunshine style

Here are some photos of the room Dillon and Sunshine did in 70's style. They have an Eames chair, high-fi and a picture with a back light. The put up cork on the walls and mirror tiles with the gold veining. Kind of cool.
