parley view parsnip. . . it is the start of a new week

Monday, it is the start of a new week, let's make it a good one.
.
 Son bought me these sweet small plums.
They are a cross of a cherry and a plum. 
They have very plum, tart skin sweet fruit with a hint of cherry. Quite nice.

 So hot in Tucson the Javelinas came in to cool off.

One of my favorite places to visit in Tucson.
The National Parks Store. They have lectures, artist meet and greets, historians stories and films.
Plus the best bookstore and gift show of native arts.
Fabulous !

Love this, reminds me of a Navajo Hogan.

Simple shapes with plenty of interesting  materials used.

 I took this photo, blinded by the bright summer light.
I wish I could have lined the right wall next to the blue fascia. 

 Love this tree. 

 One of my favorite comics. Duncan is just so like Watson. 
Watson would sit outside for his moment of zen and he loved the sitting in breeze.
But I never let let any of my dogs stick their head out the car window. 
Very dangerous !

And of course here is your pretty for the start of the week
A moment of thehamish zen, his eyes are closed.

At the foot of my bed with his pillow.

  1. Those plums look delicious! Delightful comic strip. My Lois sits in a certain spot in the yard to catch the wind. I must admit, I rather like a blast of wind to the face, myself.

  5. I shall begin with the photo of the succulent plums. How delicious they must be! I'll keep an eye out for anything like them at the farmers market.

    The National Parks Store has a beautiful building. The architect's design and choice of materials just seem to fit the setting wonderfully...right down to that blue fascia.

    And hamish with closed eyes shows us yet another of his appealing modes. Please do give him a scratch behind those ears from me.

  6. I love National Park stores and museum stores. You find some pretty unusual stuff there, along with shot glasses with the name of the park/museum. Do people actually collect shot glasses from every National Park they visit? (Just as long as nobody touches my Yellowstone mug.)
