Woke up at 8:00 a.m. and checked my work emails. There was one from my supervisor offering to help me with something, which was very sweet of her. Then it was time to go for my weekly blood test. When I came back, I put the mattress cover and sheet to wash, with a little bleach to disinfect everything.
Then, I did office related work for most of the rest of the day. But, I did take a stroll in the garden again, and took more pictures. These four-o-clocks are thriving under one of the lemon trees:

At one time, I had a whole bunch of California poppies, but this year, only one plant came up, but it is full of flowers. I am hoping that the seeds will scatter themselves and I'll have more plants next year.

One of the first plants we planted when we moved to this house was the pomegranate tree in the front. According to our folklore, it is supposed to be lucky to have a pomegranate tree near the entrance. I've never had a lot of pomegranates, but there has always been a few fruits, each year. This year's fruits are just forming:
I have a hedge of lantana and plumbago growing along the side wall behind the garage and the shed:

There is a 5-ft. wide side yard between my house and the wall I share with my neighbors. The cherry guava tree and one of the pineapple guava (feijoa) trees are located in this side yard area:

Today, I am grateful for:

- Washing machines.
- A caring supervisor.
- The garden.
- Water for the garden.
