A Northern Flicker enjoying a cool drink. So many creatures are drawn to the creek and it just seems to teem with life.
I visited my mother today. She's now been in the care center for four years. Now that the winter is over I can get over and see her more. My brother and his son, my sister and her husband and I do what we can to try to brighten up her days. I found some peonys at Safeway, I think I enjoyed them as much as she did.
