Just a bunch of Tucson summer stuff.
It will "only" be 111 here today !
Sweaters anyone ?
One morning I walked out past the living room and of course thehamish. To my surprise, the Sage was in full bloom. One day they look like they need water the next day zap blooming.
This is so much better in person but the sun was so bright that it washes out the colors.
This plant will bloom several times this summer.
Somewhat better photo.
Still way to bright.
Till the monsoons come it is hot sky sunsets. Some dust in the air and the sun shining through.
This is a photo from the LA Times of a fire in California.
I could have shown a photo of the wildfire that burned down my home in Laguna Beach
but I didn't feel like finding one but this is what it looked like.
Right now there are 4 fires burning in southern Arizona. Three lighting strikes and the biggest one is man made, started on the border of Mexico and Arizona.
The government haven't said much but many think it was cartel started
to divert attention so they can run the drugs and trafficking of women and children
across the border easier.
When my friend D was here for a few day we found some fossils on my land.
It was so exciting we ate them !
My poor attempt at humor.
Pickled artichokes are so tasty.
And of course just because I can here is your pretty for the start of the week.
thehamish is not allowed in the kitchen.
On one end of the island there is a nice sized overhang just right size for a stool.
But I have put a nice rug and their water dish.
Well. . . thehamish has decided that if he can not come into the kitchen he will get as close
"into" it as he can. Sometimes I just see his sweet little face peeking around the coroner
while sitting on the rug. It is his safe zone I think.
I just love this gud dug.
