A low off the west coast has blown enough smoke into the mountains for the air quality here in the San Francisco Bay Area to improve. We are now in the “Moderate range.” If you must, you can work, play and exercise outside. However, today is the 30th day of Spare the Air and our Corvid numbers remain in the dreaded purple range (along with most of California), so nowhere to go. Except your garden, if you have one.
The Red Quill seemed to stop blooming in the thick of it but has now begun again. Is this a hopeful sign?
I do not know. It’s so hard to have any hope. So damn hard.
What will happen when the blooming reaches the tip? Will it remain a stalk of spent buds? We will see.
