Here is my picture of this month's TUSAL. Lots of different colors. Black, blue, red, and whites. All of this from Chinese Garden.

One of the Greatest Sci-Fi Writers

Anne McCaffrey passed away earlier this week. She was one of the first women to breach the pre-dominately male field of science fiction. I've read the Pern series several times. One of my other favorites is the Crystal singer series. I had the luck to meet her at a convention in New York many years ago. She had on a blue velvet outfit that she described as "harper blue". Anyone who has read the dragonrider books know what this is. We have truly lost a gifted storyteller.
