These pictures are from Monday morning.  We've had some delightful summer rains here, but it is still hot out...good weather for working on projects indoors.  Have a wonderful day!

That's good advice that a person like myself should hear:) I'm glad you were able to get out and do a walk. I'm hoping this weekend brings in some cooler temps. Right now it's birdwatching from my dining room window:( Hope you have a good weekend and we get some nice rain again.

It looks like the rain has been really good to the desert down there.

I watched a magnified image, and all noted by you on a walk and I like it very much. Yours.

Ah, the rain is such a gift to the desert, and it shows in your images. I so enjoy seeing what's going on in the morning desert during your walks. Getting rain up here to. Much needed.

I can feel the heat from your pictures.

But what a wonderful life in the desert.

Great plants and great animals.

Beautiful photos, Diane. I was wondering if they were taken after a nice rain.... Everything looks so clear and bright.... Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,

Looking at these beautiful shots I can only feel nostalgic...
Nice to see this much green at this time of the year.

These are wonderful photos from your walk. The critters are enjoying the early sunshine..

We have been hiding inside too since it's burning for the last two weeks.

So much beauty all around you. I do believe you have more green (and blooming plants) right now than we do here in Indiana.

Anthony said...

Great photos.

Beautiful desert shots! I love the hawk photo (at least I think it's hawk) with the fanned tail feathers.

Arti said...

Nature is always generous to provide us with plenty of beauty. And you have captured it all so beautifully.
Wish you a fabulous Sunday:)

Magpie said...

Oh, you are so brave to get out and walk. But thank you for doing so. These are all wonderful shots. The promise of the bloom from the cactus is great! The birds always capture my heart. All beautiful!

Hello! Wonderful post with wonderful photos!

Darla said...

I just love taking a walk with you through the desert, Diane. :-) Your eye and composition through the photos really brings out what I might otherwise miss on my own!

BTW, I just posted a photo of a 'volunteer' flower in our yard that is so precious ... if you know what it is, could you let me know? Thanks so much! Blessings!

Diane, remind where these are taken? I know you have told me a gazillion times, since I often think they are Usery. The bridge view is lovely. And bunny - my what big ears you have!

Diane AZ said...

Hi Brenda, this was at Sabino Canyon. :)

Ahhh, thanks!
