I have begun walking and swimming trying to get back into my exercise program. I am realizing being gone almost three months you see many changes as you walk. Some businesses have gone out of business and some new ones. Some people have changed their landscaping and gardens.
 I had to go and check on the neighbor that has such a creative garden. I have never seen this done. She has used her old pumpkins to put plants in. This wouldn't work in Minnesota with freezing, but here it will act as a compose for the plants. I think it looks attractive too.
I took a picture of this tree to show that California has a few trees that change colors. Of course, not anything like the beautiful fall in the midwest and east coast. So I am enjoying taking in my new surroundings.
