Fires North of me.
Not counting the 3 fires south of Tucson.
The Saguaros are blooming like crazy. Not just on top of the arms but down the stems.
Not sure what this means. But it is not right. No wildflowers and now the
It is so hot here that Agatha and iwinston made a Campfire in the cool house to roast marshmallows.
As always some pretty.
I mentioned to Mom this morning that it looks like the clouds were starting to move in for tomorrow's rain. She called me this afternoon to say she heard it's not clouds, it's the smoke from the fires. I'm to the point that I'm thinking, depending on how much notice I get, I'll leave the slower motorhome I live in, toss mom and the animals in my Mazda3 and head out. With enough notice I might take the motorhome as I have a tow dolly for the car. In the Ready, Set, Go model they use for evacuation levels, I'm outta here if we get to Set.ReplyDelete
Gosh I am so sorry to read this. Didn't you have the same problems last year ? At least with the motorhome you could find someplace to camp at till the all clear.Delete
It is so smoky here my lungs are crying.
Hopefully you get some good rains soon.ReplyDelete
Not for quite awhile. Second week in JulyDelete
I wonder if the change in the saguaros has to do with climate change. The fires are so frightening.ReplyDelete
Who Knows ? Some had a second bloom last year.Delete
I'm so sorry you have to worry about fire season. That's truly terrifying. As always, Winston and Agatha are completely adorable!ReplyDelete
I grew up here so it is not that bad but when you see the flames coming at you it can be very interestingDelete
Those sky photos are so amazing. I am so sorry about the fires and are hoping the rain will come soon so you all will be safe.ReplyDelete
That was several summers we just had the best clouds.Delete
I've been seeing those fires on the news and I always think of you. It must be so frightening for you. That's interesting about the saguaros. You know we've all had many changes in our usual weather and maybe now it is affecting the plants? Climate change is a frightening thing. I love your beautiful pictures! Love those gud dugs from me and take good care of yourself. I'm hoping for rain for you.ReplyDelete
It is not that bad I have lived through so many wildfires and earthquakes. When I worked in Kansas City I hated the tornadoes.ReplyDelete
So tragic about more fires. Hope this peters out quickly and allows you to simply enjoy the beauty around you. Those saguaros are incredible.ReplyDelete
I love them.It use to be that they never grew an arm around 100 years. Now it is somewhere around 70 years. Evolution ? along with climate change ?Delete
We live so close to nature.
Second photo from the bottom: amazing!ReplyDelete
There was so much more to that cloud, I am having problems with my photos and blogger and I hope I haven't lost the rest of my Clouds.Delete
I have always thought this one looked like some form of a spaceship
The fires look and sound scary Gayle. Stay safeReplyDelete
Those saguaros decided to expand their bloomage! Very cool.ReplyDelete
