L. Frank Baum (1856-1919), author of the Oz book series, spent much of his time between 1904 and 1910 at the Hotel Del Coronado. Baum wrote at least three of the Oz books while staying at the hotel, and some speculate that the hotel's design inspired Emerald City, the fictional capital of the land of Oz.
Switched to afternoon watering and that has worked out better. Soon the weather will be dropping at night and I will have to switch to mornings again...but for now, we're okay.
It was 95F in Riverside today (about an hour's drive from us). It probably made it to the high 80's here.
Made a huge pot of pea soup yesterday, simmered it with the ham ends all day, so yummy. Today I am slowly simmering the pears from our tree which never fully ripened indoors. They turned yellow but stayed hard so I am simmering them down with some apples.
