Theme Day–A City Other Than My Own

cactus.JPG I have now posted the picture I really wanted…believe it or not, we are in Sequim. Yes, rainy Washington has some dry spots. We are in the rainshadow of the Olympics. If you read information about Sequim, you will find the average rainfall is generally listed as between 17-19 inches a year. This cactus is reported by the oldsters to be native to this area. Thanks to all who visited and guessed at the temporary picture I posted (see thumbnail below) I was in Music City, Nashville, TN, at the Country Music Hall of Fame.

  1. this anti-spam words on wordpress comment boxes crease me up sometimes

    this one was


    after that any comment from me is superfluous

  2. Hey Hollywood: I’m running behind like you are! With three different sets of friends on my island, Maui, …I’ve been super busy and eating far too much with too many festivities. Where did April go anyway! Good photo rescue! Can you guess mine?

  3. I had inside information so I did not guess on your Nashville photo. However, that same inside information would have lead me to believe your cactus was from Texas. So much for insider information.

  4. Ah, I’m glad the waiting is over. Welcome back.

    I’ve always heard of the rain shadow in Washington. And now I’ll always think of you when I think of the rain shadow.
