I posted a picture of a Columbine flower bud on Monday. I thought it would open in a few days, so I took pictures of it each day. One thing I didn’t mention was that it rained all week long we got 4 inches of rain in a day at the beach, just on the last day. Our closest mountain. Palomar Mountain received 19 inches of snow. Big Bear Mountain, the next closest got 24 inches of snow, while Mammoth got around 45 inches.
Anyway, since it rained all week this flower took its time. Yesterday, the storm cleared and we saw a mostly sunny day, and it opened. Here is the progression, followed by what the freeway looked like near me. I often take pictures of that nice waterfall and tiny creek by the house. It flooded and went into the freeway.
