So far so good ... she's repotted and sitting back on the table amidst several others so she can't fall down and go boom!!
While doing that, I noticed the clutch of thirteen baby quail, now teenagers, hitting the water station. They were quickly followed by another group that came out from under a huge pile of cactus, only these were baby babies. The once inch variety. A second round of quail have been hatched.
Monsoon season is officially open for business in Arizona. The forecast is for rain every day this week. Don't get your hopes up however, since it literally rained on one half of my house while the other half got not a drop.
One thing I can never get enough of is the soft afternoon "golden hour" light that comes after a storm. It makes everything beautiful, even cactus.
It also makes for some of the most fabulous purple blue pink sunsets. It's like a rainbow, only a hundred times better.
I parked my chair outside, flailing my arms to ward off all the bugs. I didn't care. THIS was a gorgeous sunset that lasted over 30 minutes.
I got my exercise for the day when I went back into the kitchen and hit a spider web straight on. I danced around like I was walking on fire. How do they do that?? Spin a web in 30 minutes to trap me when I return?
Luckily I never saw the energetic spider that built it. I contemplated my world globe in the garden for another few minutes before heading off to watch a baseball game. The Giants lost this one to the Phillies, retribution for us kicking their butts the last time they played.
I've really got the itch to head out for some hiking and photography, but everywhere I want to go has dirt roads, not conducive to driving in the rain. I'm going into historical building withdrawal. Sometimes you just have to take off and see where you end up.
