JUNE IS HERE...

These are busy weeks at Casa Colibri. I'm catching up with photos, and Rob's catching up with his collages.

It is a beautiful spring at last. The matilija poppies are making a spectacular show on our hills. At Casa Colibri the sunlight plays shadow tag with skylights and windows.

Early evening is the perfect time to take a glass of wine and sit inside on a strawbale. We look out the windows at the fading light over Lyons Peak.

We look at one another in amazement that we have actually come this far.

A REMEMBERANCE ROSE...

Rob's sister, Barbara, passed away this week after a long illness. She was a lover of roses, and some 20 years ago gave us this beautiful miniature that has (amazingly!) continued to flourish. This year it is even more beautiful than ever, and we say hello and thank you to Barbara every time we pass by.

NO JUNE GLOOM ...

We often wake to a brilliant blue sky and the warmth of sun through the oaks. The coastal overcast seldom reaches us. It is halted by Mother Grundy Peak and White Mountain to our west. The cameras on Lyons Peak tell the story.

BEE SEASON & Snow in April

At last the weather has warmed and our bees are foraging. We name our honey after the conditions that produce it (every year is different) Last year's was called "Fire & Rain." We are naming this year's harvest "Snow in April"

MATILIJAS IN BLOOM

Matilija poppies should be the Deerhron Valley official flower. This year they dot every road and hillside beginning halfway up the Honey Springs grade. These are on Sandra Ignosci's property just to the northeast.
