The Small but First Ones

Pictures: These little flowers are about half the size of a dine but they are the flowers I see first each year. I once looked up the name of this flower but I have forgotten 😦 I am not sure but I think it is a Scorpion Weed of some type.

Weather: Most of the days have been 70° plus over the last few days but today it is a little cooler with a high of 65°. I see in the forecast that by the first part of March we’ll have some highs in the mid 80s and I wonder why it can’t always be a high of 75° and a low of 50° ….. I guess that is just a bit much to ask for, LOL. It sure would be nice though!

Knee Replacement: Today is my new knee’s birthday, it just turn 7,   I took it out for a nice two mile walk!

Some old shots of Butterflies

Pictures: Couple old shots, these are near 10 years old. The gear use to take this shot was Camera-Canon EOS 20D DSLR, Lens-Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS and a Canon Extender EF 1.4X II. I still have all that old stuff 🙂 The Camera may be a little long in years but the Lens and Extender I may use at any time, still.

Weather: The rain continues, it rain most of last night but hopefully this will not last much longer, however it is very overcast and dark looking for today. I talk with a friend in Yuma, AZ this morning and he said that he had a little sunshine peeping though so maybe it’ll work it’s way north to this area. The weather man says mostly sunny tomorrow 🙂

Exercise: I walk for a couple of miles today, yesterday was a rainy day off!

Sunshine: Well it is about 1 pm and the sun has pop out behind the clouds, nice to see it and love watching my solar power do it’s thing to my battery storage bank, Hope it stays out!

Weather: We have a steady rain today which started last night around midnight. It is nice to see the dust settle ❗

Exercise: It has pretty much rained all day, so I didn’t get out today.

Green here

Pictures: This year is a bit different here in the lower desert (at least in this area), different in that there is a light coat of grass and that is not a thing you see much in the desert. Sadly this won’t last long as the sun heats things up in the next weeks the green will be gone.

Grass!
