Albion Basin Wildflowers

The children and I did this hike a couple times last year and it was one of the best things ever, so we were all really excited to get up to the canyon again. The wildflowers are so stunning! We are always talking about how lucky we are to live near these canyons. I will never get tired of them. I don't know if the Albion Basin is world-famous for wildflowers, but it should be!
The wildflowers are just packed into every little space between the rocks. It's almost indecent how profuse they are! :)
Marigold was quite pleased with her perch on my back. She certainly saw more of everything than she did last year!

Daisy's Black Eye

Quite puffy
Daisy and Junie crashed into each other (racing to get back into bed as they heard the Feet of Justice coming upstairs) and poor Daisy got the worst of it. However, she likes her black eye very much and has been Most Anxious that I document it in every stage. I used to make my mom admire my bruises too ("Ah, Stage 2," or "Stage 3," she'd say, with a clinical eye) so I quite understand. Here Daisy is over the course of the week.
Less puffy (with sad face for effect)
Purple and black
Purple and yellow
Brown and green--almost gone!
Just a ghost of its former self

Random Thoughts

I was playing background piano music for an art show last month and I started playing "The Rainbow Connection." It is impossible to feel like a serious musician while playing "The Rainbow Connection." I was really, really hoping someone I knew would walk in so they could hear how earnestly and sincerely I was playing it.

I find the phrase "light industrial" (as seen on zoning/for sale signs) strange. It makes me imagine an upper-class, pearl-wearing woman who just drops in occasionally and dabbles in a spot of welding or car repair.
I like braids and ponytails on little girls, but I especially like the strange actions they do with their heads so they can feel their hair swinging. When I was little I used to swish my braids around and say to my mom, "I'm an egg!" (??)
