The fires continue to burn here in Southern California. Zone 23 is still in the clear. As I sat at my computer this morning and the sun was rising, I noticed that the sunlight was coming in my windows bright red. I took this photo of the sun about 8:30 a.m.
This reminds me more of a setting sun than a rising sun. The eerie color is from the sun shining through the particulate in the air.
I had a comment from a reader that my spa would make a great shape for a Koi Pond. I had been admiring some specialty tiles which are two kois swimming. I think they would be fun to install on the bottom of the spa when we replaster it.

We are not part of the fires in California at this time. Sunrise this morning is rather ominous. I took this photo at 7:45 a.m. Usually, the sky would be blue with a bright yellow sun beaming into the house this time of year. Here is how it looks outside right now. I am sure this darkening of the sky is due to the fires in San Diego which is closer than the fires in Northern LA.
