I honestly can’t currently see any of your pics for the other dark stars, either. Do I have to go over to your Flickr to see them? :)

no that probably wont work. I know, I’ll post a photo again!

Wow, this is breathtaking! :)
Makes me a bit nostalgic over having lived in the Pacific NW- I had this in my garden there, but had to leave it behind when I moved.

but you live in paradise now!

LOL, sort of. Too long a story for this medium… it isn’t always such a paradise for me in a few ways. Main problem being that the economy here is currently worse than almost anywhere in the USA I’ve ever been or could go to, (yes- even worse than Calif. But maybe not as bad as Puerto Rico or certain areas in FL)
Some cities which are awesome to vacation in, are nevertheless a real pain to try and reside in due to very high cost of living and other factors. I hear that Las Vegas and Paris also fit in this pattern, and Paris in particular has been challenging and costly to live in for a good, long time. One of several reasons why I’ve decided I gotta read ‘The Paris Wife’. :)
