Neighbor Carol Delmar Shows Us Her Gigantic Cacti

HalfMoonBayMemories asked Carol: Where did you get these humongous plants?

They’re on loan, she told us. They had been growing, for years, at Princeton-by-the-Sea.

Carol Delmar: I’m just babysitting them. The aloe looks like it’s 200 years old!

Sunday’s “Haiku”

Sunday’s “Haiku”

by Leon Kunke

Birds on a spring morning   

The happiest moment of the day.

A robin drinking in a rock pond

Is another good moment.

Composing nature with rocks

So water can flow in a garden

Is a very good time for me.

To take an afternoon nap

After hard work

Is great luxury.

Solitude in a redwood thicket

Is the purest wealth.

Being paid money

For work considered artful

Is pure bliss.
