Truckin' Tacos ~

Here's another of the food trucks who participated in my neighborhood's Sunday Food Truck Roundup. It was nice to have a picnic dinner outside under the trees and not have to cook or clean up!

Wild West Roundup - FOOD, that is!

My community arranged for a food truck roundup to celebrate Father's Day. It was great fun and there were several cuisines offered for dinner choices and an ice cream truck, too! Yay! The weather remained perfect - warm and slightly breezy. Wonderful dinner party!

Tucson's Alpine Chalet ~

This charming little house is a mailbox! Check out the shingled roof and the mini planter at the back! Wonderful!  And notice the "flag" is a purple tulip!  (:

True Confessions!

Ha! I also laughed at the smaller sticker's sentiment:  "I'm Retired. Go Around Me."  Happy Friday!

Saluting the Sky ~ the Saguaro Cactus


The mighty saguaro "is" the symbol of the southwest. This awesome tree-sized cactus can only be found in the Sonoran Desert and can live well over 100 years. A mature saguaro is magnificent to behold! For more info on this symbol of the desert, click here.

Rushing Water ~

Continuing with yesterday's display of art displayed at Tucson's main library, here is another piece in the library's collection: "Monarch" by James P. Cook. The artist has boldly captured the power of rushing water in Rocky Mountain State Park. A dam had burst above these falls and the flood waters dramatically and permanently changed the landscape. I also particularly love the bold graphics in the carpet that, from the higher level angle, appear as 3-dimensional tiles on top of the carpet. Cool!
