My Monday post about what is going on around my home. A few random photos.

  1. Hello:
    We are so happy [and relieved] to read that you have had a lazy and peaceful week. What with hospitals and roofs being blown off, you deserve a rest. May this week be equally calm!!!

  2. Gorgeous! Love the rainbow and the bench. I've never seen a pomegranate tree before either.

  3. Loved seeing your local flora and fauna!!

  4. Jane and Lance...
    Yes, somewhat more peaceful week. Although Hamish has taken a turn for the worst. Back to the doctors.

    I love Pomegranate trees and I am thinking of planting one in my yard along with a Meyers Lemon Tree.

    Empress Bee...
    As you know from where you live, just looking out our windows is a treat.

    As I love your "local" flora and fauna and especial the local Green Beard Man from your last post.

  5. Such beautiful pictures! My pomegranate tree and citrus trees have not produced any fruit (or even flowers) since the big freeze last February.

  6. Two rainbows. So is there two pots of gold waiting?

  7. The photos are getting better and better. Are you pleased with Picasa?
    Poor darling Hamish. Please give him a gentle hug from me.

  8. Just a little sad: your desert is so much more beautiful than mine. This isn't the first time you've heard me say so. I'm not whining. It's simply that mine is SO harsh and extreme. Yours has splashes of softer beauty. I am envious, just a little. Not that I'd take a thing away from you. Maybe just that I think I need to treat myself to some Arizona. Thank you, as always, Parsnip.

  9. Nice photos you got here.

  10. Great photos. Double rainbow beauty. I had never seen a pomegranate tree. Thanks so much.

  11. Stunning images all, but I love the texture and colour of that tree bark, especially. ♥
