Hallo all! Here some photos taken during my morning walks along Cathedral Oaks Blvd and the citrus orchards below the foothills. The only thing that is missing are the oaks (!), but AQ will recognize the eucalyptus.
Lovely photos, Annette! Thanks for starting the thread.
Thanks ANNETTE for starting our new week. A familiar scene, yes.
Today is an anniversary! It is 12 months since I began recording on my kitchen calendar “where I have been when out & about”, now called contact tracing. That was 2 weeks before our first lockdown and for several weeks I had already been slowly stocking my pantry with a few “extras”. I think I first became concerned about the news from Wuhan in January - sometimes I wish I had kept a diary or journal but last year’s calendar is interesting, though with lots of nothing days. Oh, where did I go a year ago? It was a photo excursion to 3 churches to capture stained glass windows.
Just a thought

Diane: You're welcome :-)
AQ: That saying is so true. I also like :"If you want something done, give it to a busy person." Do you guys grow citrus down under?
ANNETTE - Citrus, we sure do. In our state, the Riverland is famous, ie along the River Murray around towns from Waikerie to Renmark. Mostly navel & valencia oranges, mandarins, tangelos. Other regions in VIC, NSW, WA & southern QLD.
