It’s my April blog post! These 2 photos were not taken today on Earth Day but earlier this week at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. We had visiting relatives and took them there…sadly, it was HOT!!!!! But we still had a nice time…this is a Gila Woodpecker and a Desert Spiny Lizard. Chihuly in the Desert was also installed amid all the lovely flora at the garden. These are just a couple pieces:
You can see that the desert is in full bloom, too.
It was extremely windy here in Phoenix today and the birds were having a hard time navigating. This Inca Dove was being buffeted about so much that she had to use her wings to stabilize herself while scrounging for food.
And here are a few more photos from my yard a few days ago…
A Bee-fly, Rosy-faced Lovebirds, and a Verdin sunny side up.
Ferguson and Torti are now sporting new peace sign collars:
And Ferguson, of course, is always busy, always challenging himself…with geometry problems and learning to play the piano, ragtime, of course…
…While Bouche and Callie romped in the dirt and flowers on this sunny, windy Earth Day.
