Arizona Flowers, Birds, etc.

I have been enjoying taking pictures of everything that is around me. This morning, still in my morning pajamas and sans my morning tea, I went out in the backyard with the camera dangling around my neck.

Then later in the afternoon, my husband and I went for a ride around town and took whatever subject struck our fancy.

And ladies and gentlemen, here they are:


I just planted this Petunia in the pot a week ago.

Yellow gold flowers




This particular flower thrives in extreme hot climate of downtown Phoenix.

I have been admiring these flowers right where I deliver mail for a while. I just love the bright red color.

Wildflowers

I finally got a picture of a hummingbird flying in mid air.

This hummingbird flew on the tree branch right above where I was standing. The picture turned out to be bigger than its real lifesize.

A Raven on top of the Saguaro cactus sippping nectar, I supposed.

A deer that never strays off.

I took a picture of this hammock because my daughter in college can't wait to get home and do a lot of reading in this hammock this summer.

That deer looks a little stiff. hehe. And the bird on the cactus? ouch. I assume there's no thorns on that part of the cactus where that bird is perched.

I am awestruck Belle! Your backyard is beautiful. And if I were your daughter, I'd spend my time reading in that hammock too.

Hi Ate Belle,
I also planted petunias(burgundy doubles), I'll take a picture of them when they are in full bloom. They are one of my favorites because they are not fussy. You have alot of flowers that thrive in Arizona. I can see why your daughter can't wait to be back from college to get on the hammock. That hummingbird pic is just so cool! I am still waiting to see one this year. Great pics!

You have such a beautiful garden, Belle! I imagine your lot to be so spacious to accomodate all these things! And the hammmock - oh, it's been years since I experienced a hammock nap!
