Peter Rabbit does not live in Tucson ! #1

Oh no ! what would Peter do ?

Peter Rabbit does not live in Tucson ! #2

One of the Peters had come out for early dinner. He ran along the
fence between "The Boys" yard and the citrus grove. . . Unlike the
real Peter Rabbit and Mr. McGregor's garden this Peter could only look
forlornly at the lush grass.

When I first moved into this home early morning would find the bunnies
nibbling the grass with the easy in and out through the fence.
Unfortunately many unwanted critters, Rattlesnakes yikes ! Gila
Monsters oh no ! would mosey in also. So the "Rattlesnake fencing"
was installed and now the bunnies can't get in. They can only look.
The fence does not keep out Mr. Wildcat or Mr. Mountain Lion but they
get to go where ever they want and no silly little bitty fence will
stop them. So far they like the trees... thank goodness !

I try not to upset the natural feeding patterns too much, that is what
Mother Natures for but I think I will have the gardner toss some of
the grass cutting out past the citrus trees so the little ones can
have a treat every two weeks. The amount will not be much as "The
Boy's" yard is quite small.

It is Spring in Tucson ... Fabulous !

Prickly Pear Cactus

Prickly Pear Cactus, originally uploaded by angryparsnip.

My Month of art is coming to an end and I have tried keep it up.
Unfortunately a few roadblock . . . taxes, new roof, garage problems
and illness kinda got in the way . . .
but . . .
I have so enjoyed saying " oh the heck with it " and make myself sit
down and draw. I always seem to run out of time for me. Not good !
The cactus will be blooming soon, the wildflowers have already
started so I thought I better finish this drawing now.

You can made fabulous syrup and jam from the red fruit but you have to
fight the birds for it. In the summer and fall you always see red
juice stains on the green cactus, lots of insects love them too !

put that camera down !

put that camera down !, originally uploaded by angryparsnip.

I have been taking lots of pictures lately. Several times I have set
my camera down while still on and have been very surprised with what
I have seen and clicked on.
A whole different world appears when you set your camera down at table
Not composed or designed I just clicked on what appears.
Now when I use my camera, the last shot is a table/ground shot and I
am so amazed at what I see.

This shot is from my computer towards my TV and workspace.
I have two work spaces the semi-clean computer/printer work area and
the big 58 inch square work table in the middle of my studio that is
always in a state of flux !
Let the crazy begin.
