Flower of the Day: Echinacea

Thanks to Cee Neuner for hosting the Flower of the Day (FOTD) Photo Challenge.

Self thinks echinacea are some of the most beautiful flowers she’s ever seen. And there were masses of them around the Paso Robles Inn, where she spent the night. The Inn has such a gorgeous garden!

They also have a koi pond, with the fattest koi self has ever seen (and she’s seen a lot of koi)

Stay cool, dear blog readers. Stay cool. She is glad she decided to take a little time off and head down the central coast. Her house was baking.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge (CFFC): Week of 22 June

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is:

Ground: sand, dirt, paths, walks, trails, roads

Self woke up this morning in beautiful, calming Paso Robles and decided to explore the paths winding around the gardens of her Inn. It’s in a great location: right in the heart of downtown Paso Robles. Across the street is a public park. This morning, there was a wee farmers market and even though self was not in the least bit hungry, she couldn’t resist buying a few cookies after she found out they were mango-oatmeal cookies.

The footbridge crosses a narrow stream filled with some fat carp.

There is a short “reflexology path.” She would love to walk barefoot along the stones!

A sign explains what a reflexology path is:

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
