Wild Wildlife Sighting!

MEOW! Here is a bobcat hanging out in my neighbor's driveway! We frequently see javelina in my neighborhood but rarely a bobcat. Beautiful!

Moonrise over Tucson, AZ

What a lucky moment to be driving home and to see the moon just coming up in the east! Beautiful!

Riding in Style ~

This little pup had the whole back seat to himself! Do you provide limo service to YOUR pup?? Little cutie pie!

The Edge of the World ~

The current Tucson monsoons provide gorgeous cloud formations and sky colors. The moody clouds here create the illusion of being at the edge of the world, don't they?

Throwback Thursday ~ Tucson's Historic Barrio

On this day in 2009 I posted this photo of a typical charming doorway in Tucson's barrio. Happily, some things never change and my bet is that this house has not changed much in six years. Here is the original post:
Tucson's barrio district (also called Barrio Historico or Barrio Libre) is a treasure trove of charming adobe homes - many date from the 1800's. Adjacent to Tucson's downtown, this small area is now a mix of private residences and offices for lawyers & other professionals.

Another batch has hatched!


For many months now my patio has served as a bird sanctuary and birthing center. I can't remember now how many twins have hatched either in my flower pot (the most popular spot) or up in the rafters. Here are the two newest little ones. I was lucky to snap these photos while mom was out for a few minutes hunting for bugs. It's amazing that the little doves have such scruffy feathers when the mature doves are so sleek.

Half and Half ~

It's easier to show than to try and explain the quirkiness of our monsoons. Here you see half of the street is getting rain and half is still enjoying sunshine. Weird indeed but after awhile even the weird seems normal with these storms.
