Tuesday Tidbits #209 Peaceful Days

Hello Folks… Are you enjoying the peacefulness after Christmas? The downtime? I enjoy the month of January. Nothing to do except …enjoy life. I enjoy watching great football, reading good books, and taking the time to get out and enjoy the fabulous weather. Here in the desert we can do that. The temperatures are in the high 60’s to mid 70’s in January. It’s Perfect weather! Although, we have had our share of rain but we welcome it! The desert loves the rain and soaks it all in. And with this rain comes the hope for a super bloom! We had a rainy winter back in 2019 similar to what we are experiencing this winter. Oh, and what a spectacular super bloom we had!

This hillside was covered with wildflowers in March of 2019.
Our desert poppies are a thrill to see!
When the wild lupines mix in with the desert poppies… it’s heaven on earth!

A girl can dream…right? I will say the Brittle Bush is blooming now… so I am getting hopeful!

Brittle Bush

Because of the rain… the desert is starting to show shades of green!

It’s always a joy to see grass in the desert.

Desert Ride

The rain was gone for several days and one particular day it was 75 degrees and sunny. We got our friends together and we went for a much needed ride in the desert!

Wild Burros

On our desert ride we got to see many wild burros! They are always so fun to see. They are descendants from the Gold Rush Days of the mid 1800’s.

Look at that cute baby!

They are always so curious when we drive by.

Birds of a Feather

We had some visitors in our backyard a few days ago!

This visitor did not mind how close I got. I told him to stay away from my Goldfinches.
Costa’s Hummingbird… taken with my cellphone.
My new friend!

It was a great week. I hope it was for you as well. I have to share one last photo with you. I saw these beautiful paperwhites on my walk through the neighborhood. Spring is on its way!
