Gas Pains

Tom grew up in Milwaukee, bartended in Wauwatosa in the '70s and moved here in 1984.

Commentary, observations and musings about the outdoors, life in general and maybe Tosa politics and personalities will be the order of the day. He savors a lively debate as much as terrific cooking.

Exorcising the Winter Blues - Part 5

Just For Fun, Outdoors

I crawled out of bed this morning and was wondering how to shake the post-election blues out of my generally cheery demeanor.

As it turned-out - the sun rose as predicted - same place too.

The cardinals were calling from my neighbor's cedars.

The coffee was just as good and much to the cat's disdain - girlfriend (the dog) was doing the lab wiggles.

I felt better almost immediately.

Here is the last of the series of native (and one non-native) plants that we can look forward to seeing before too long.

Can you identify the following:

Ox-eye Daisy (non-native)

Canada Hawkweed

Cardinal Flower

Blue Vervain


I'll reveal he correct identities at the end of the week.
