Hello friends. Thanks for stopping by for Tuesday Tidbits.
It’s starting to warm up here in The Valley of the Sun… aka Phoenix, Arizona. So that means we get up a bit earlier to get our outdoor activities done in the cooler temperatures.
The Season for Saguaro Blooms
My walks and bike rides are earlier and I have enjoyed the saguaros blooming in our neighborhood and all around the area. They tend to bloom a bit later in the Spring then the other cacti.
Spring in the Sonoran Desert
The other cacti are still blooming as well. Here is my neighbor’s pink cacti.
And these purple blossoms found on this particular tree is a delight to the eyes.
Spring in the desert is wonderful!
We did get out for a small adventure this week to an abandoned Pumice Quarry.
Opal could be found on the surface of some of the Pumice.
I did enjoy spending time taking care of some overgrowth in our backyard. Lots of trimming but this little guy can see out into the yard now!
And my white petrified wood that has quite a bit of Druzy on it can be easily seen now.
This Weeks Creature Feature!
With warmer temperatures the lizards come out to play. We enjoy watching them do push ups on top of our backyard wall.
Every year we enjoy watching the race. We did not have a party this year but we made sure to join in the fun with those who attended Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. Mint Juleps for the both of us!
Did your horse win? Our horses did not. But it’s so fun to watch along with all the Hats and Outfits!
It’s always nice to hear from you. Thanks goes out to all of you for following along. I appreciate your kindness. Sending well wishes for you to have a beautiful Tuesday and a lovely week ahead.
