This is an Amaryllis hybrid. It was growing in one of the gardens at Tohono Chul Park in Tucson, Arizona.
I love this time of year! It’s still a bit chilly outside, but nice enough to go for a sunset walk in my neighborhood (wearing a light coat and a hat to cover my sensitive ears).
Last Sunday I took a solitary walk in the rain (with an umbrella or I would’ve been soaked). About half way around the block, my husband picked me up in the car and we went for a drive in the rain. That’s when we spotted these two geese enjoying their own private puddle.
Isn’t this rotting tree stump cool? And you can see some of our run-off in the ditch behind it. The water running through our neighborhood ditches is fast and furious, not to mention loud! I hope parents have warned their children to keep their distance.
On a side note, I am participating in The Great Walk Challenge which starts today. The challenge is to walk one mile every day for the next 100 days. I love walking with Leslie Sansone! This morning I walked 3 miles to one of her walking workouts.
