Fabulous friend from California is visiting.
Armed with my trusty walker we have been out and about.
Pictures soon to follow and I will spend some time playing 
catch up with all of your blogs.
I leave you today with a Crested Saguaro. 
One in 200,000 Saguaro Cactus develops a crested top.

The day was so bright I did not get a great photo.
We are off to The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum today.
I hope to find a better crested saguaro today.

Where did the week go ?
But when your Little Square Black Dog everyday is Friday
Or possibly your birthday.

My Watson who is deaf and has dementia really likes to sleep on my bed.
Usually at the foot of the bed. But the second I get up he is right there to cuddle 
in with the pillows. He will make a nest and go back to sleep.
Last week after showering this is what I saw.
Pillows moved and blankets moved. He likes to nest.
awwwww my sweet baboo.
Love the paws !

Really.....  I am sleeping here.

I like the bed this way.
You can make it how ever you like baboo.

Parley view parsnip. . . autumn

When people ask me what season I like best, I always think of
all the wonderful seasons Spring flowers, Summer fun or Winter snow. 
But I always say Autumn.
Autumn in Tucson is like heaven.
Now why would I say this ?
I am sure where ever you live Fall is beautiful. 
Trees leaves turning orange, gold and then brown. 
Falling down to a crunchy carpet.
But in Tucson it is very different.
As A child growing up in the 1950 and all the way into the to the 70's 
we didn't have air-condition. We had evaporated coolers.
Water is moved over fiber like pads and the cooled moistened air breeze through the house to help drop the temperature.
It works fabulous when it very hot dry weather but when the monsoons 
come not so much.
So we all learned how to live in the hot muggy but much 
needed summer monsoon season.
But then came lovely Autumn.
Wonderful cool Autumn.
Adored Autumn.
Summer temperatures that can go up to 115 + 
drop down to the low 90's and high 80's. 
Evenings go from the 80's to the 60's.
Pure heaven. 
Days are warm with bright blue skies and soft cool breezes.
Plus everything stays green in the valley. Nothing loses leaves except for the mesquite trees and that is not until our month of winter.
In fact quite a few plants are blooming and
many plants are fat and happy from all the summer rains.
The citrus fruit is just starting to turn from dark green to either orange and yellow.
Yes Autumn is my favorite season.
 Barrel Cactus
 Yellow Pomegranates  
 Barrel Cactus
 Beautiful squash
 Moonrise over Thimble Peak
 Prickly Pear pad and fruit
 Paloverde seed pods
 Mesquite pods and seeds
The best flour is made from the beans.
 Desert sage plants.
Not to eat but they bloom and grow like crazy.
 thehamish enjoying the Fall weather.

And just because I can here is your pretty for the start of the week.
Following with the Autumn theme,
here are The Square Ones enjoying a Halloween treat.
 thehamish and Watson having fun
Oh dear !
