Sunlight Savings Time

Bird of Paradise

It’s not just the end of Daylight Savings Time that tells you winter is coming. It’s the layer of gray coming out in the sky, and layers of warmth coming in as you dress. But I do have just a little bit of sun saved up in this batch of random, sunny pictures from San Diego. For starters, seeing Bird-of-Paradise growing outdoors is totally all about sun and warmth.

Where I grew up in Santee, it was nearly always sunny and hot. We didn’t see gulls, unless it was cloudy at the beach. But this is a seagull at the beach, which means it’s (say it) sunny at the beach.

This is the beach in question, complete with palm trees–living clichés of sun.

Honeybees, like this one getting dusted with rosemary pollen, love sunny days.

Why I like to get a window seat
A herd of clouds

And I still love getting a window seat on the plane–and a sunny view.
