One Hell Of A Wind Storm Late Yesterday   5 comments

Monsoom Storm-4-72

Usually, this time of year, when the temperatures are over 100 degrees, we start getting some monsoon rains.
So, yesterday when the dark clouds began moving in we would get some rain, and we did.
But only after some strong winds, reminding us much of a coming hurricane on the gulf coast.
Usually, wind gust in the desert doesn’t blow off the green olives on our patio tree,
but they did yesterday.

Monsoom Storm-3-72As the front moved through, we started to get some rain.

Monsoom-4-72We received about one-quarter inch, the first rain in two months.

This Canyon Towhee has been spending time in the shade of our olive tree, which is near the patio fountain and feeders. Yes, birds can suffer heat strokes. — kenne

The Pits

Across from me my hostess sits
And counts my mounting olive pits
To throw her off and just for fun,
I think that I will swallow one.

Roadrunner August 14 2015 (1 of 1)-2 blog105 Degrees In The Shade — Images by kenne

Home from a hike on Mt. Lemmon
just finished downloading images

when Joy announce to me,
“A roadrunner was on the patio.”

Grabbing my camera off the desk
I went to the patio door

where I could see the bird
on a branch of the olive tree

above the water fountain —
105 degrees in the shade.
