    SCV Outdoor Report: Waterlogged

    By Wendy Langhans

    So just how much rain did we get on Sunday?  Some reports say over seven inches?  But my watering can is eight inches tall and on Monday morning it was full to the brim.  Several of my potted plants were waterlogged - I had to bail them out.  As I bailed, I started thinking - how much water can dirt hold, anyway?

    SCV Outdoor Report: A Rose By Any Other Name

    By Wendy Langhans

    A vivid flash of pink caught my eye as we drove past.  But almost as quickly as I asked, “Could you please pull over”, my husband was looking for a safe spot to stop.  We were driving along San Francisquito Canyon Road, enjoying a lovely spring morning.  I had brought my camera along, just in case we spotted any wildflowers.

    SCV Outdoor Report: Endothermic

    By Wendy Langhans

    January is a good month to be endothermic.  Tuesday, the temperatures in the Santa Clarita valley reached a sunny 79 degrees.    But two weeks earlier, we were blanketed in snow.  So any creature that can regulate and maintain it’s own body temperature, regardless of the weather, has a built-in advantage in our unpredictable valley.

    Do you sing in the shower?  In a church choir?  Do you download songs from “Glee” on iTunes?  Watch old Hollywood muscials on TCM?

    People love to sing and listen to each other sing.  It’s part of what makes us human.  And perhaps, that’s one reason why so many of us enjoy watching birds - we get to listen to them sing.
