ANOTHER SPRING BEAUTY AND THE JOLTS KEEP COMING

As I am sure you've heard by now, Southern California/Northern Baja was rocked by an Earthquake yesterday. We were just sitting down to Easter dinner when it started. I've felt Earthquakes before, but never as long as this went on. It is an eerie feeling. Then last night, oh around 2a, an aftershock woke me up. Luckily, no damage here.


Have you ever seen a blue hibiscus? They are very rare, indeed!
Or one that looks like this?
Okay, okay, so this is the original, which is still pretty spectacular. I had a little help from Photoshop on the other two, as you may have already guessed. I just love it in blue!

We didn't feel a thing up here....but we're much farther away than you are. I'm glad you're ok and no damage. And I hope you were able to have your Easter dinner after everything settled down.

Oooh Tamerie, I thought about you soo much when I heard about the earthquake! Glad you are ok! That is so scary... we are sitting right on the Wasatch Fault here in Utah, and I am hoping we don't get a big one! Hope your Easter dinner was nice, I am sure you were rattled a bit... your photos are beautiful! I love Hibiscus... xoxo Julie Marie

Wow!! This is the first I have heard about it. I am glad you are alright! I guess you have to deal with the earthquakes and we have the tornados!

Otherwise, I hope you had a wonderful Easter.
