Summer in the desert.


The Prickly Pear pads can be eaten. Somewhat like green beans when sliced and cooked.

 Prickly Pear fruit. Once you carefully remove the skin and tiny thorns you can eat the fruit. 
The fruit has tiny hard seeds that you can not bite through but you can swallow.


Gambel's Quail

 Gila Woodpecker. Has a red spot on the top of the head.
One of my favorites so beautiful.

 Arizona Cardinal.
Quail and bunny cooling off in the damp earth.


Here is your pretty for the beginning of the week.

The wild Arizona Scotty in his natural habitat.

 I have posted this before but it makes me so happy !

Winston likes his water crunchy

Square Dog Friday is here !
So let's hit it.

All my Scotties love crunching ice !

 ohhhhhhhhhh what do iwinston be seein'

 owwwwwwohhhhh nurffff gurrrrrrr uffff

 yesh you bein' seeeeeeeeing small runnin' lizard agatha

 lizzzzzzarddddddd gurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

 you be seeein' 


 When Agatha is upset she is very quiet and hides in plain site.
The start of a storm is coming. Then she jumps into action,
pacing, panting and crying. It is so very sad. We have the
calming spray, pills and the  Thunder Shirt.  They all sort of
help but she is still panicking.

iwinston loves the sun and wants to be outside all the time.
I have to drag him in. On this day 110 is just to hot for Little Square Black Dogs.
So back to the skylight, and cool tile floor in a AC home.

 Merida on her new Throne. Merida is the Queen and don't you forget it !

 She is so round she is her very own Orb.

 We call her "The Orb"

 Queen Merida only loves Son.

 Yes you. . . are beautiful !
Son took these Merida photos.



 before the dogs,

 Oliver would venture out more.

 They all love the chair.

The best chair in the house.

As alway here is you pretty for the weekend.
One of my favorites from a few years ago.

 I love single clouds !

The Scotty in the middle is so iwinston. He would be a great search and rescue gud dug !
This is one of my favorite strips, The Other Coast.

Square Dog Friday, monsoon weather

Best day of the week is here
Square Dog Friday !
woof !

Monsoon clouds.

                                     Light rain making the mountains show their sides.

When it is too hot outside to lay in the sun you can come in
the cool home find the sun and nap on the cool floor.

Unless your afraid of the loud thunder and even soft rain, no joy here.

As always here is your pretty for the start of the weekend.

Oh My Goodness !

I must try this !
Thank you Spoon and Tamago !

cheers,  parsnip
