Tres Amigos

That was really the sky this morning. Let’s see if that blue blood moon tomorrow is anything noteworthy.



Lit trees on a hotel driveway.



For Fall, and since this was the only picture I took today, for a POD.


Petal Pusher

Our tree is wacky. It has spikes on its trunk. And it grows beautiful flowers on one limb that you don’t notice until they start falling.

If you only get one tree, I guess this one’s ok.


Sick More

I have no trouble recalling the name of these trees because they always look to be on their last legs, even in Spring. I guess the planners of this deciduous tree-challenged neighborhood thought they’d be just the thing we’d like to see on our morning dog walk. As if they might actually provide some respite from the glaring star that flings its blinding rays at us most days here. Now that I’ve shared them with you, I’m hoping I won’t be so offended by them, and we can just get on with our lives. There, I feel better now. 



It’s not much but it’s all we’ve got. Fortunately, it’s growing fast. It’s a silk floss tree (Ceiba Speciosa). It has grown noticeably just in the two years we’ve been here. Down low it’s intimidating, but looking up into its branches gives me hope for some respite in the land of unrelenting sun.
