 The wind was blowing the clouds very fast that day.
This series happened in just a few minutes, zooming right over us. 
It was a beautiful sunny cool afternoon.

You can barley see the red spot on top of the head of first bird.

 The succulents are growing so fast. Trying to call outer space ?
The gardeners say it is doing great but I like it smaller.
I wonder Audrey is getting too much sun or not enough ?

Hello Audrey !

 How thehamish sleeps.
Always has the tip of his tongue out.

  1. Hi, Gayle! I saw footage on my local news the day you guys had that spectacular monsoon and dust storm. Today here in Florida we are having the kind of day shown in your second series of pics - brisk wind, cooler temperatures and high cirrus clouds racing across the sky. When Mrs. Shady and I traveled across the country to San Diego last summer I brought back a cutting of the type of succulent like your Audrey. I have it in a container and it is growing nicely. It is very touching to see that special image of Watson. I'm guessing that the last picture is a pomegranate. Am I correct?

    Have a great week, dear friend Gayle!

      We get some high winds but not the kind that "The Mummy" had in it movies.
      Audrey is taking over the patio, I will have to start flinging meat at her soon.
      No, it is not an pomergranate. but I can see why you said that. I have two pomegranate in my grove.

  2. What beautiful photos of the sky! Love the one with UFOs landing :-) The cloud blown by wind looks dynamic! Must have been very windy. The woodpecker is very pretty. We have them around our house and I love them, but....I just wish they won't peck the feet of our deck!
    The way thehamish sleeps is adorable :-) What a cute tongue! And sweet Watson..I know he is always surrounded by love xo

    I have no idea what the last picture is....can it be an onion?

    1. They are so different from the other woodpeckers.
      The only red is a dot on the top of their heads.

  10. Is "doggish" a word? You know what I mean. It is good to see the Watson photo.

  11. The third shot's my favourite of your cloud shots. I've seen dogs that have had that tendency to sleep with a tongue stuck out.
