Skywatch Friday

Looking out over the San Bernardino valley, it seems like it always has a haze of smog these days.
The berries of the Blue Elderberry bushes are ripening.  I tried making jam from these once, but they're a real pain to pick and sort through.  Humans can't eat them raw, they must be cooked.  The birds love them though, so they don't go to waste. 
I worry about the children who have to live in, and breathe in, that smog.  It can't be good for their health. 
And, I spotted a California Sister in my garden today. 

Linking with Skywatch Friday


  1. You have the power of catching nature at her best. She certainly smiles for you. So, so, so incredibly beautiful.

  2. You don't realize how bad our air quality can be until you get up above it and look down!!

  3. I can remember living at the foot of the San Jacinto Mountains and how bad the air got in the years we were there. I taught at a school and frequently indoor recess was called because of smog alerts.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
