I went out back and climbed up the little hill where we keep the bird feeders. I took the finch feeders up that Verna just filled up. When I was just ten feet away from the feeders after hanging them, the first goldfinch showed up. He was followed by several other goldfinches and house finches a short time later.

This is one of many tiny blossoms on our lemon tree. I think that there may be winter lemons from this tree if the freeze doesn’t take them out. We will be covering the tree in the morning in anticipation of forecast frost tomorrow night. Click on the image to enlarge.
During the fall and winter months, the sky is frequently covered with high, thin cirrus clouds. At that high altitude, clouds are mostly composed of ice crystals which act as little prisms to refract sunlight. A couple of days ago, the sun was surrounded by a halo demonstrating this effect. I took a picture of the phenomenon using our big saguaro cactus to block the direct sunlight. Click on the image to enlarge.
Bay Bay climbed up on the love seat in the great room today and hunched down on the arm while his haunches were parked up toward the top. He looked so cute that I had to take his picture. Mama’s Baby Boy. I love him. <3 Click on the image to enlarge.
After several days of overcast and rain, we finally get to have a cloudless, sunny day. I took this picture of Verna and the dogs on their way back from the mid-morning walk. Click on the image to enlarge.
. . . Henry Wickenburg, that is. This is the bust of the Vulture Mine discoverer and founder of Wickenburg, AZ, that sits outside town hall on Tegner Street in the historic downtown section of town. Verna captured this image a couple of days ago as we were going to see the dermatologist. Click on the image to enlarge.
