Walkie is too long to put in a measly 10 photos!
Marty, standing on building materials in the shed/hangar project!
Ochotillos in lovely leaf in my driveway turnaound. They grow leaves like this when there is moisture, like the recent rains. When it dries out, they drop the leaves and look pretty dead. Not really, just water smart.
A creosote bush by my drive, it, like the ochotillo takes advantage of available moisture. Instead of losing and regrowing leaves, the creosote takes another shot a blooming!
All three mutts ready to go!
Kobe, taking advantage of a short break. TO SIT AND WAIT.
Another ochotillo on one of my hillsides.
The vista from my property, looking west to the hills about 1 ½ miles away (about 2.42 Km).
Some ripe tunas on a paddle cactus. (Yes, that is the name of this sort of cactus fruit.) They are very sweet and tasty but care is needed in harvest and handling due to many tiny hair fine spines..They make fantastic jelly.
Gus, pulling his famous, look really cute and then look away, the instant that the shutter clicks!
Bunch of little white flowers! They are all over the place.
The same little white flowers, up close.
Lovely blue and yellow flowers.
This is a bloom of an inedible squash found in the area.
The same bloom but more in context.
A gorgeous green beetle.
Here it is, climbing about on a small plant.
Went out of my way to fund this Devil’s Claw. I is so called due to its marginally edible fruit which becomes a seed pod. As the pod dries, it splits and has two long looped “horns” that catch the feet of larger animals, including man. That spreads the seeds far and wide.
Junction of Ruiz Ave. and Karina St. I used to drive around this corner. Not any more. Gee, I wonder WHY?
More of these blue and yellow blossoms.
