I agree Bill. About the same here a bit north of you. Another couple of weeks and things will be greening up and wildflowers aplenty. Along with the bloody black flies.

Now is the time you do all that PP you've been putting off
to release all those hidden gems !

Autumn here, 25C, we went to the beach.
Go and shoot some B&W, mate.

Where's Pogo? Whoever can answer that is revealing their superannuation. This place desn't look so bad. At least it hasn't been drained and filled for an industrial park.

Meanwhile out on our foray today it was sun hats with ventilation and general cookery. Drinking lots of cold drinks and really enjoying getting back in the Ranger for some AC. Many flowers are already done. And some areas better get some rain soon or it's all going to be wilted summer vegetation.

Careful what you wish for

Well Walt, Georgia can get pretty hot & sticky. Done my share of travelling. I remember seeing many years ago a huge handpainted sign on a stockade fence surrounding a auto junk yard..."All Thieves Will Be SHOT on Sight"

I don't even put in the AC Units I have up here. Alawys a nice breeze here on top of the Mountain
