Spring is here. The backyard is our favorite place. After dinner, the kids go outside to play while I watch the shadows lengthen and breathe in the fresh air. Like many people in Northern California, we do our best to conserve water by not growing a lawn. Our back slope is filled with yellow flowers that look like daisies but aren’t daisies; does anybody know what they’re called? We don’t. The flowers attract the bees that pollinate the fruit trees. Bees, we have a lot of them, but we stay out of each others’ way.

Spring. The rain we had this winter is paying off.
