Yes, that is dirty snow still on the ground on May 15, but this particular picture is along a road in the mountains around the city of Anchorage... so it's okay. (Said mountains below. Aren't they beautiful?)
We looked and looked for a moose in the wild... finally went to a zoo to see some. While at the zoo...
we naughty grannies held snowballs over that poor gramps!
Such a pretty girl... too bad she has those awful horns growing out of her head!
This Bactrian camel came down a hill and posed once the cameras were out. He turned this way, and that.- doesn't he look the dandy...
they twirled them, just like Snidely Whiplash.
You know we went to a couple of quilt stores! Here's what the Gramps did there.
Back home again in California...
EVIL EYE into our cherry tree. It floats around in the wind, and has kept the birds and squirrel out of the tree. Good to know! Now that the cherries are done, I'm going to put the eyes into the apricots. See if I get some fruit this year. Last year the squirrel ate all of those.
Say Hi to our neighbor, Rudy. Everyday his parents and Trouble, his brother by another mother, walk by our house. Rudy is always carrying a toy. He's maybe going by tomorrow with the bright pink one. I'll try for another picture.
This is my plant souvenir from Alaska.... blooming! Thanks for the slip Michelle!
Another view... It's only about an inch tall. (Sorry about the focus.)
Well, that does it for today. I'm quilting on the pink, yellow and lime... almost done.
