In a matter of hours the destruction was significant! I just saw some pictures of the fire and where it has spread--it's just dreadful to see all that damage in the path of this roaring fireball! It doesn't seem like they can control it they way the fire is spreading so rapidly. :(

I was walking my front yard to see some of my early flowers merging. It seems like the Primroses have finally come up. Our grass was just cut, so there are grass clippings surrounding it! I believe that Spring is here and hopefully now rolling right into Summer soon! :)
Thinking of you zstairlessone.
Darkness ! :-)
