Friends and Kitties!
I was going through my phone photos and I picked out a few good* ones to show you.
This was taken along a part of the wash that is currently being revegetated. I decided to ride the gravel road instead of the bike trail for a new perspective. The pipes on the banks are for reclaimed water irrigation, and the foliage are all native plants. You can see the dams in the background slowing the water down, allowing a series of ponds to form. The bird in the pond nearest me is a Great Blue Heron--I saw (I think) seven of them! Imagine, waterbirds in the Mojave Desert--there is a truly diverse biome here in the Las Vegas valley.
(The building in the far background is Sam Boyd Stadium.)
Scott and I were out and about and he realized he had on two different shoes!
See the bumps and scrapes on his shins? He's as bad as a six-year-old.
A nest in a cholla cactus at work. It didn't have any feathers or poop in it so it was likely just a practice nest.
This was taken in late July, during Monsoon season, again at work. It was pouring in the Spring Mountains forty miles off and sunny in Henderson.
I love the vistas out here.
Driving home the other afternoon I saw a lady out walking with her miniature pony! Of course I pulled over to talk and get a couple pictures. His name was Buddy, and he was the friendliest little soul--walked right up to the car window and peered in--he had to snuffle me, and nibble my fingers, too! The crew had a field day sniffing the horse spit on my hands when I got home.
There's more, but I'll save those for another day...The next couple of weeks for me are going to be exciting, yet strange, what with my schedule changing. My intentions are to keep up a regular posting schedule--everything else is up for grabs, though! No promises. I can't wait to awaken naturally, without the effing alarm clock. Two more days. wheeeeeeeeee!!!!!!
Happy Sunday--Have a Great Week!

*good, as in interesting, not visual masterpieces.
