My Olympian Gold, Silver & Bronze
On this, the final day of the 2016 Olympics, I went for an early run near Irvine Park–as I have been doing lately to avoid the midday heat.
In my non-race against no-one but myself, we were all rewarded with Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes in the dusty summer landscape. (Click on the links for more information about traditional uses of these lovely California native plants.)
Bronze: California buckwheat (Eriogonum fasciculatum)
Silver: (a three-way tie)
Willow leaves transformed by morning light . . .
Now on to my favorite Olympic events from the past week: (Not to brag or anything, but I rocked them all.)
The new school year begins tomorrow . . . here we go!
