More desert delights
Another hot and sweaty day in the beautiful spring desert sunshine. We went for a long hike this morning with Marti and her two dogs. After a bit of lunch, I went out to plant some more perennials in the front yard. The courtyard is becoming a rock garden, but I am enjoying the process. The flowers add a lot for me. Pictures, soon, I swear! I got too hot to finish today, plus I think I was a bit worn out from the hike. Matthias had some errands to run, and I nearly went with him. I am glad I stayed home.
After I got overheated outside, I came in and did a bit of watercolor painting. These are all quite small, and I am not pushing myself too hard. I want them to be playful and airy. It will be another couple of days before I post more of them. (I know, all of this teasing. I'm sorry!)
Instead of other things, you are getting even MORE flower shots, today. I am also including photos of some of the other denizens of the desert. A lizard, who was feeling particularly brave, and a king snake (not harmful - to humans, anyway).
I promise if you stick with me, you will see other photos soon. PROMISE!!!
